Schindler India Launches Schindler Digital Plan for Elevator & Escalator Planning for Architects

Schindler India, the leading providers of escalators and elevators and a 100% owned subsidiary of Schindler Group has launched Schindler Digital Plan, a one-stop-shop to help architects and planners with valuable product and design information while building & planning. The breakthrough in elevator technology has made it possible for multi-story structures. Today elevators are lifelines of the tall buildings. The important factor here is to plan for the correct number and the right specifications of elevators, considering the type of building, its tenancy, population etc. 

Planning plays a crucial role is because once the elevators are installed, it is extremely difficult to change, or add more elevators without making substantial changes to the building structure. Schindler's advanced Digital Planning tool adds key value on this front, by helping architects and customers alike to plan for the optimum elevator configuration while designing their buildings. It helps not only in planning, but this dynamic tool also enables architects to create elevator layouts, elevator traffic study and tender documents in customized manner for their projects. Moreover, the tool will help architects and designers in all kinds of facilities planning based on its type and usage, be it residential, commercial, hotel, hospitals etc.

Schindler Digital Plan uses the latest visualization technology and data analytics to give designers and customers comprehensive product specifications and a detailed layout drawings which are invaluable. Architects using Schindler Digital Plan will be provided with two options i.e. Guided Planning where the designers will navigate through the portal and enter building design details and the second option will be Fast Track that allows the architect to filter the Schindler product catalogue to find the desired planning data which includes determining the minimum lift requirements through a simple Traffic Study and Schindler product recommendations.

Commenting on the announcement, Vincent Pinto, Senior Vice President- New Installation Business said, “We are pleased to announce the launch of the Schindler Digital Plan in India. Keeping in mind the mobility and safety factor while designing, with Schindler's advanced Digital Planning tool we aim to revolutionize and optimize the way architects and planners approach design while planning and creating specifications of elevators for their projects that is integrated into all our solutions.”
