Transcript Engineering Service The d'Humy Motoramp System is protected by basic patents in the United States, Canada and foreign countries. Its use is licensed by Ramp Buildings Corporation at a standard scale of fees proportionate to the size of the building. These fees are moderate and often the greater part of the cost is returned in extra income in the first year's operation. To make every garage as efficient as possible, the Company offers if desired, and without added charge, an advisory engineering service. The Company is glad to place its specialized experience at the disposal of those interested. In the preliminary stages of a project the Company will be glad to sketch plan,* in miniature, comparative storage layouts for any specific plot which may be under consideration. This is done without charge or obligation. Garage design is a progressive art; new ideas, particularly in relation to planning to capitalize on the latest operating developments, are constantly being evolved. The Company believes that it has something of value to contribute, and seeks the opportunity to advise with the architect on each new garage project, however closely it follows one seemingly very similar. When a project assumes sufficiently definite standing to warrant the signing of a Ramp Buildings Corporation License Agreement (operative only when a building is actually erected), the Company makes available the full measure of its engineering service, covering the most efficient layout of the garage building under consideration as to: i. Location of Entrance and Control Facilities (lobby, offices, cashier's office, parcel room, waiting room, toilets, filling station, stairway, passenger elevators, shops, etc., etc.) 2.. Establishing the Critical Dimensions, such as ceiling heights, sizes of bays; car space widths; ramp widths and lengths; turning diameter; grade of ramps; width of aisles; location of columns. 3. Location of Washing and Greasing Facilities, etc. 4. Arrangement and Location of the d'Humy Motoramp system of Inter-Floor travel. 5. Provision for the indispensable mechanical equipment (heating lighting, plumbing). This continuing Service includes also the checking of Architects' preliminary and final plans, in-so-far as this relates to the work outlined in the preceding paragraph. Where it seems advisable, the visit of an R.B.C. Engineer to the construction work, at the time of pouring the first Motoramp, is included. *NOTE:—The preparation of preliminary layout sketches, in miniature, is a service rendered to Architects without cost or obligation. In doing this we work to best advantage when given the information outlined on our request form enclosed. Additional copies will be sent on request.
