The VT Studio was founded by John Stopes, who moved into consulting following a long and successful career at senior level within the Vertical Transportation industry.
John has worked with vertical transportation since 1976, and has been involved with numerous major projects both in the UK and abroad, working for the major manufacturers until 2001 and then both specialist VT consultancies as well as large multi-disciplinary practices ever since.
Thus, the VT Studio’s expertise has led the design in all building sectors such as super high rise, high rise, commercial, retail, leisure, residential, healthcare, infrastructure, mixed use and rail. We understand fully the interface of the vertical transportation strategy with the other consultancies in the team such as structure, services and fire and life safety and know what each of their priorities are. In-house design, engineering, project management and full knowledge of maintenance issues means we can offer full cradle-to-grave support throughout the working life of a lift or escalator.
Our detailed knowledge & experience of vertical transportation, the building design process and on-site construction are on hand to ensure a successful project, on time, and to budget. Every time.
