Transfer Level

Arabic translation: دور تنقلات مدعّم / طابق تنقلات مدعّم

English term or phrase: Transfer Level
Context(staging of construction process):

Foundation, Parking Podium, And Transfer Level

I guess another meaning for this term is transfer floor. Here is what I found about it:

What is the Loading on a Transfer Floor?

Design of reinforced concrete transfer floors, although routinely performed by structural design engineers, is a very challenging task. The transfer floors are commonly used in multi-storey buildings, and they are major structural elements carrying a number of floors. Normally the entire building, 10 to 15 levels, is carried by a transfer slabs.

The major problem is the evaluation of the loading on the transfer slab, especially the columns and walls terminating at the transfer level. When a column terminates on a transfer beam, it will carry a smaller load since the beam supporting the column is acting as an elastic spring. The smaller the beam depth, the smaller the axial load in the transfer column. In this case the load is distributed to other columns which are continuous to the footing level. In an extreme case if we remove the support below the transfer column, the axial load will be reduced to zero, i.e. the column will be "hanging" on the floors above taking no load.

could it mean : ادوارتأسيسية أو حاملة؟

Explanation:
This layout is usually reflected in the internal elevator zoning. Since nearly all elevators require machine rooms above the last floor they service, mechanical floors are often used to divide shafts that are stacked on top of each other to save space. A transfer level or sky lobby is sometimes placed just below those floors.

A sky lobby is an intermediate interchange floor where people can change from an express elevator that stops only at the sky lobby to a local elevator which stops at every floor within a segment of the building.

جزيل الشكر. عدلت تنقلات إلى إنتقال لأني رأيت أن تنقلات ترتبط أكثر بالمواصلات. ونقول مرحلة انتقالية وليست تنقليه.
