Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
The scope of this project was to develop an educational seminar series that effectively conveys information on issues surrounding the use of evacuation lifts. Evacuation lifts will not only improve evacuation times for high-rise buildings, but also provide equitable egress for persons with disabilities. Key informants and stakeholders were interviewed and surveyed to determine the concerns and misconceptions that they had regarding the use of evacuation lifts. The seminar series focused on considerations that address evacuation planning, building design and management, and maintenance issues. The goal of our project is to educate members of the design team on issues surrounding the use of lifts to ensure the safe and effective use of evacuation lifts in the future.
