Did they completely forget to provide space for an elevator (highly
unlikely that nobody, even the construction laborer who sweeps the floor,
would notice this until building completion), or was the space they
provided, maybe a continuation of what was provided for the lower floors,
end up being insufficient for a taller building?
Suspect the latter, and I can easily see how that could happen.
even if someone noticed it and RFI'd it, I've dealt with arrogant A/Es
who would basically respond in so many words "trust me we know what
we're doing" unless the originator of the RFI was directly related to
the elevators. (and sometimes even when it was something that was my
area of experience, I'd get that answer anyway.)
