Our Approach

We add value to our clients through elevator expertise and sound business analysis

What Makes us Different

We fully understand the business pressures of property decision makers. Our business decks are thorough and concise to help property managers make the right decisions for their specific situation. We communicate using best methods speed, up to date office tools, and visualizations as appropriate. We translate elevator technical information into business friendly language that is easy to digest. We let data lead the way to the right answer rather than making recommendations imposed by loyalty to elevator companies. We set a billing structure that is appropriate to the engagement and client needs. Our preference is to bill by project and engagement rather than hourly.
