Due Diligence Assessment

Choosing to ignore your building’s vertical transportation system can have dire financial consequences. The hoistway and machine room contain critical components that can have a significant economic impact on your building. Elevator and escalator due-diligence assessment will directly impact key components during the property acquisition. It is imperative to verify the equipment is operating and at industry standards from a safety, reliability, and performance perspective.

Your asset plan requires an advocate for the building at it’s team, providing in-depth expertise into vertical transportation that is vital when making decisions about the building. We work diligently to mitigate the risk upfront and identify potential repairs or improvements while focusing on increasing reliability and performance.
