It addresses the following constraints and gives requirements for alternative solutions:

- existing perforate walls of the lift well;

- reduction in available well are leading to reduced distance between car, counterweight or balancing weight;

- counterweight or balancing weight in a separate existing well;

- reduced building dimensions and clearances leading to:

- reductions in available space for headroom and pit;

- reduced car roof balustrade dimensions;

- reduced height of sill apron;

- reduced height of machine and/or pulley room;

- reduced available area for access door/trap door;

- reduction in available height of landing doors.
