About Vertical Transportation Annual Consultancy

Troup Bywaters + Anders provide Vertical Transportation (VT) advice for landlords, Building Management and Investors to assist in the management of their assets and optimise performance.

As leading Building Services consultants, we bring our extensive experience to this aspect of a building; we operate in many sectors and understand how the lift, escalator and suspended access equipment need to respond to the specific requirements of each sector.

Typically, clients ask us to undertake an independent and comprehensive audit of their VT installations (lifts, escalators and suspended access), maintenance contract and contractor performance to ensure continual compliance with the maintenance contract and associated British standards and regulations.

This is summarised through a coordinated and technical audit report and prioritised schedule of recommended actions to be undertaken in the short, medium and long-term. An annual or bi-annual’ audit is recommended and is follow up through a meeting with building management and contractors. This means issues raised from the audit are being dealt with and monitored in a timely manner. Technical support and assistance is offered in tandem throughout the consultancy period.

We also have provided additional services which include:

  • Condition Reports
  • Life cycle programmes
  • Installation handovers
  • Project management
  • Contract tenders
