    I know that this works if the lift is under fire control. Except that you have to continue to hold the floor button until the floor then hold the open door button.

    I don't recall seeing the close doors button in a lift for years.

    I have seen missing floors before, its usually because that particular lift cant access the floor even though it exists due to the way the building is laid out.

    I've also read it's quite common (though not in this case) for the 13th floor to be missed all together purely based on superstition (i.e. you'd have floor 10 - 11 - 12 - 14 -15 - 16 etc.)
