RIBA CPD

thyssenkrupp Elevator are well known worldwide for exceptional engineering quality and innovation, however both of these attributes are preceded with a desire to understand our working environment and the requirements of our customers. As part of our mission ‘engineering. tomorrow. together.’, we’re proud to announce that the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) has asked us to deliver a seminar on the requirements of UK and European lift regulations.

  • EN 81-20 (NEW) Safety rules for the construction & installation of passenger and goods
    passenger elevators (electric & hydraulic)

  • EN 81-70 Elevators for persons with disability
  • EN 81-72 Firefighting elevators
  • EN 81-73 Behaviour of elevators in the event of a fire

Additional information will be provided in respect to the characteristics of elevators determined by the type project, its functionality and overall size of a building. The short seminars will be hosted at architects practices over a consultative work shop luncheon following which all participants will receive the required RIBA accreditation along with a commemorative certificate.
