Stand-Outs: High-Rise Managers Share Their Team’s Best Practices

Owning or managing a tall building is a lot like operating a small city. Being responsible for the services and infrastructure that keep occupants and tenants in business is a big job. So why not take some suggestions and help from your colleagues when you can get it? We found some examples of best practices that are being incorporated in high-rise facilities, and arranged them into categories.
Elevator Commissioning

Ensuring the Long-Term Dependability of Your Elevators

It’s been said that what goes up inevitably must come down. But when it comes to the ups and downs of a building’s elevators, it’s critical that building owners and property managers keep up with equipment testing to ensure the safety of tenants and prevent costly repairs. The most effective way to accomplish this maintenance component for any high-rise building is through a process known as “elevator commissioning.” The Commissioning Process Explained Elevator commissioning is a broad, systematic review of the system to ensure that all mechanisms are performing as designed.
Destination Dispatch

Destination Control Improves Tenant Comfort and Security

Destination control systems can further optimize system performance with artificial intelligence that is capable of learning and forecasting the traffic flows of a building. When the traffic intensity alters, the control system measures the changed traffic patterns and switches its optimization routines accordingly. Enhance Tenant Experiences Any time elevator efficiency increases, customer experience is enhanced; however, the unique benefits of destination control systems increase passenger comfort from floor selection to destination arrival.
