So that's really the big thing you would need to think about in terms of this particular exam, is how you would have to make sure that that space is allotted, so you can make sure you're not having head-height problems, you're not having flow problems, that everything sort of makes logical sense. And then the last things to say about, obviously, having escalators in place, is they clearly have to be maintained fairly regularly, there's a lot of power involved, so there's a few other little elements. You have to make sure that there are places to get to the machinery, there's an ability to have access panels, this is gonna be showing up a great deal on the mechanical plans, 'cause there's a lot of electrical that's gonna be needed for these, and a lot of other sort of power aspects, so they intertwine with our other systems quite dramatically, but mostly it's about keeping the people flowing through, and keeping them able to be maintained.
