Vertical Transportation

Getting people from A to Z

Transporting people from floor to floor smoothly and efficiently requires innovative thinking from an innovative engineering team. That’s why you’ll want to consider the WGE Vertical Transportation (VT) team for your next project.

Whether it’s a lift or an escalator at a school, retail precinct, commercial building or a hospital, there’s nothing our specialist VT team hasn’t tackled. Our VT engineers are highly specialised and have worked on projects such as Fiona Stanley Hospital ($2bn), The Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) ($1bn), The District Courts Building in Perth and Melbourne’s Upper Westside Apartment Project ($1bn).

Complex design jobs like the VCCC (a combined health and research facility) require a deep understanding of personnel needs, traffic patterns, emergency modes of operation and security and access control systems and so much more. We take our work seriously because we know that transportation systems are vital and must be functional and operational 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Our advice to clients

While lift engineering might seem simple, it really requires a deep consultative approach across many disciplines and all project consultants. It’s about making the building work and manage the people flow. Without great VT design, a whole building can become dysfunctional, so it’s worth finding the best people for the project.
