Well-designed vertical transportation (VT) helps create buildings that are efficient, reliable and attractive. WSP, a world leader in the design of VT, joins 14 other Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (“CTBUH”) Vertical Transportation Committee members in the contribution and review the first CTBUH’s VT design guide - Vertical Transportation Design: A Primer.
Highlighting some of our past works and also the world’s renowned super tall building projects such as The Lotte World Tower in Seoul, Korea, and Guangzhou Chow Tai Fook Finance Centre, in Guangzhou, China, the book makes a good reference for those involved in the design of tall buildings. These case studies not only address design challenges and the use of future technology for VT in super tall buildings, but also sharing insights on future-proofing and important considerations for designing vertical transportation.
