by Phil Andrew and Dr. Stefan Kaczmarcyk This book covers all the aspects of elevator systemsengineering providing commentary on how individual components of an elevator arebrought together to provide a vertical transportation system which will carry the required load at the required speed over the necessary travel, and to examine how this process is moderated and supported by the requirements of safety codes.

In 1996, he joined the elevator engineering group at the University of Northampton (then Nene College) as a Senior Lecturer, teaching the Lift and Escalator Industry Association Professional Diploma in Engineering (Lift and Escalator Technology). He led the team that developed the inter- nationally recognized Northampton MSc in Lift Engineering, then the Foundation Degree in Lift Engineering. In 2003, he was promoted to Principal Lecturer and Divisional Leader for engineering. From 2000 until his retire- ment in 2004, Andrew served on the National Interest Review Committee for the ASME/ANSI A17 code committee and represented the university on Committee MHE/4 of the British Standards Institution responsible for lift safety standards within the U.K.
