Elevator Consulting

Elevators, or lifts, are among the most visible and highly utilized assets in buildings today.  They are the one system that tenants directly interact with.  Their performance is part of the image of the facility and heavily influences the quality of the building as perceived by its tenants and visitors. 

Lerch Bates brings together expertise in consulting, engineering and technology for the design and management of vertical and horizontal transportation systems, including high rise elevators, commercial elevators, freight elevators, escalators and moving walkways. Our qualified consultants provide clear analysis, cost effective recommendations and attention to detail – ranging from code compliance to aesthetic considerations. 

Lerch Bates consultants are experienced with maintaining, modernizing and working with many elevator equipment manufacturers.
