We prepare modernization specifications based upon a comprehensive visual examination of the elevator, escalator or other vertical transportation equipment in a building or project. Our modernization specifications are designed to yield maximum vertical transportation performance and value to the Owner. In order to provide the most comprehensive specification package, we visit the job site, collect detailed information in regards to the existing equipment, check all machine rooms, and hoistways, measure various performance times and note any maintenance items we deem insufficient.
We ensure that all equipment is non-proprietary, and the scope of work meets the needs of the building. VTE Solution specifications cover the equipment from the machine room to the pit which includes the hoistway, hoistway equipment, overhead and the elevator cab.
Once the specifications are written, we will provide a draft document for your review or we will meet with you to discuss, clarify and fine-tune the scope of work based upon existing budgets and finalizing the list of prospective bidders. Having a specification written, ensures that the contractors are pricing the same scope of work that the Owners are expecting and sending it out to bid ensures competitive pricing.
