Planning the right elevator for your building

There are a lot of things to consider when planning an elevator for your next project. The type of building of course but, in addition to that, there are regulations, requirements, efficiency considerations, and of course it should meet your overall design vision. All of these factors influence the elevator, which in turn, has a direct impact on your building planning.


Here’s some good news, we have created the Schindler Plan & Design to help you navigate these various choices and find the right elevator for your next project.

Answer a few simple questions in the Guided Planning module and the Schindler Plan & Design will propose the model, number and capacity of the elevators required for your project to ensure the efficient transport of people through the building. Or, if you already know exactly what you need, jump right in and select your elevator with the Fast Track module.

Individual options can be added or adjusted, such as door type, to finalize the elevator plans. Once completed, you can download your tailored elevator drawing as a dwg, dxf, or ifc file or download the comprehensive product specification as a docx.
