You could check out these two websites, Otis and Schindler give some
preliminary information that should help you get started.

Subject: elevators

I'm doing preliminary design work on a 5-story structure.  It will have
traction (cable) elevator, which hasn't been designed yet.

Does anyone have any rules-of-thumb for preliminary elevator loads so I
get rough sizes?  Maybe something based on square feet of elevator floor
total number of floors?
