When one considers a major building renovation, it's easy to focus on spaces like corridors, lobbies, offices, guest or patient rooms ... in other words, all the public-facing spaces. We would argue that right after the lobby, a building's elevators are the very next public-facing space building occupants and visitors see.
This course lays out the case for cab renovations as part of an overall building interior update.
After all ... elevators are interiors, too.
