I don't deal with elevators often, but unless you are dealing with bedrock 
subsurface conditions, it seems that a traction elevator is rather expensive 
for a 5-story building.  IIRC, hydraulic elevators are the more economical 
units for this height range.  Telescoping tubes permit rather shallow 
embedment depths.
