The Role of an Elevator Consultant
If you are a building owner, building engineer, property manager, REIT’s or facility manager, don’t call just an elevator mechanic when your elevator or escalator breaks down. Hiring an elevator consultant ensures that there is someone checking what the Elevator Mechanic is fixing and double checking that additional repairs don’t need to be included as part of the repair to meet and Department of Building requirements for that city or state. An Elevator Consultant is always up to date on what Elevator Codes and Compliance Dates are coming up and are experts on those code requirements.
Another benefit of hiring an elevator consultant is that they may be able to save you money as well. As an Elevator Consulting company, we often act as a check on Elevator Mechanics and their work. We ensure your company does not overpay for unnecessary repairs or for the work you have commissioned the elevator mechanic to complete.
The parts of an elevator are complicated and if a company is only getting one opinion on a project they know little about the opportunity for unnecessary expensive repairs is high. Elevator Consultants can provide a great service, by managing the elevator mechanic estimate process as well. As an elevator consulting company, we work for the building owner, facility manager or property manager to ensure they are getting the best price on any vertical transportation modernizations, repairs or any other elevator or escalator related work.
