Elevator Sump Pit

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Are elevator sump pits mandatory by some code of the elevator industry?  I have a condition in expansive soil with a fully suspended floor system.  It would be easier to build an elevator pit on void forms without a sump pit.  The architect said he thought it was required by the elevator industry.  Does anybody have a reference where this would be required?  Neither he, nor I, have any elevator specific codes.  I would hate to detail it without a sump pit and then flunk final inspection.

 

Thanks.
