Existing lift shaft retained

Where existing lift shafts are being retained, with a new lift system installed, all criteria for this Issue can still be assessed and credits awarded accordingly, despite the limitations of the existing shafts. The transport analysis should still be carried out as this will inform the developer of any shortfall in capacity and may influence the design of the new lift system.

Despite the limitations of the existing building, BREEAM seeks to reward the installation of an energy-efficient lift system.
