This non-mandatory Handbook has been prepared to provide guidance on the risks, equipment limitations and other matters a designer should address when considering a Performance Solution (Alternative Solution) involving the use of lifts during the evacuation of a building.

The Handbook is not a definitive design reference for specialists or experts but only intended to provide general introductory knowledge on the subject, the major issues that need to be considered and how the NCC is applied.
