In China 30 to 40 stores buildings are the norme.
Elevators are therefore very important.
Unfortunately, they are often neglected in order to reduce the buildings construction costs?
Very slow elevators
I think that it allows to cut the costs. I imagine that a elevator computer program would cost a lot.
Beware if you buy or rent in China: check that the elevators are not too slow.
Some buildings have the solution.
- For example you have 6 elevators: 2 elevators stop at floors, 2 stop at floors 16 to 29 and 2 stop at floors 30 to 40.
- You also have some intelligent computer systems. Elevators will not stop at all floors but adjust according to the number of users.
I always wonder if elevators are not willingly slow. In fact elevators generate advertisement income: users watch televesion while waiting for the elevator!
Everyday you wait 10 to 15 minutes and see at least 2 ads for cars and 1 ad for KFC...
I noticed that elevators in Changsha are often managed by Otis and Thyssenkrupp
