Careful, Safe Process

Elevator modernization is not something to rush. We have a tried-and-true process that ensures your results are perfect.

Initial Survey

We start with a comprehensive examination of your existing equipment. This necessary step ascertains the overall needs and scope of the project.

Full Report

Next, we provide you with a third-party Modernization Study Report. This document outlines the extent of the project to meet your vertical transportation goals.

Our team walks you through all of the recommendations to discuss time and budget needs. Unlike other consultants, we take plenty of time to go over each piece of the proposal with you. Our goal is to make sure you understand all your options.

This discussion allows you to take the best approach to meet your property’s specific needs. We aren’t selling you a product. We give you the information and data and help you implement the changes.

Get Into the Specifics

Once you’ve had time to assess the report and ask questions about it, we develop a specification document for your property. This critical item includes our determination of which existing equipment could undergo refurbishing. This option returns your machinery to a “like new” condition and can save a lot of money.

The Bidding Process

One of the things our clients appreciate the most is our work on their behalf when it’s time to get bids. We are happy to do the talking for you. Barbre Consulting, Inc. will manage this step with confidence and authority.

We attend pre-bid meetings and provide you with a Modernization Bid Executive Summary Report. And when it’s decision time, BCI gives you an award recommendation.

Monitor Workmanship

The BCI team works closely with your chosen contractor throughout the elevator modernization process. This attentiveness allows you to take something off your plate. It also allows us to ensure you receive the highest level of work on the project. Through periodic job site visits, we can assess the progress and address any deficiencies we see.

Final Survey

To wrap up your modernization project, we go through the job site to check that everything is complete. We produce the “Final Acceptance” document when workers finish your modernization project.

Communication and Cooperation

The Barbre Consulting, Inc. experts excel at communication. We are clear, concise, and to the point in our reports and updates. But we also take the time to dig deeper as needed for clarification. We are not here to talk over you. Rather, we talk with you to ensure we answer all of your questions.

When it comes to the modernization of your building’s vertical transportation system, the choice is clear. Barbre Consulting, Inc. has the experience and skills to meet your every need.
