Project architects are often expected to write detailed elevator specifications, though this is generally outside of architects’ area of expertise. A common approach is for them to refer to the elevator manufacturer’s specifications, available online. Unfortunately, elevator manufacturers can construct the specifications in a way that makes the pricing cost-prohibitive for anyone other than themselves, discouraging project bidders from offering competitive rates.

RiA constructs elevator specifications correctly, so that the project attracts competitive bidders, often reducing the costs enough to offset our fees completely.

Client Benefit: Avoided a non-competitive tender.
