Will all that circuitry cause lag: for the chunk, neighbouring chunks, server?

It may, but elevators don't have constantly circulating signals do they? They only change states when activated. At that time, it may slow the server down (but hopefully not crash it ala big explosions).

I guess then the question is, whereabouts have you built this?

Right smack dab in the center of my tower.
You can get there by heading to Akira's double Zombie farm #2, then going straight through.

To answer your questions, it doesn't rely on any kind of clock or pulse. It toggles on, through a set of repeaters which delays the signal sufficiently to lift the player slowly in a multiplayer environment. Its contained within a few vertical chunks and only has the tower walls nearby to render, and I'm sufficiently away from others so it shouldn't be an issue.

Each levels circuits are turned on "slowly" (4 ticks) in between, and can be delayed an additional 3 if needed.

But that's only 2-3 repeters, what are the other 4-5 used for?

3 repeaters going up, 1 for the power circuit as it spirals upwards, and 2 for the downward control lattice. So thats the 6 repeaters I mentioned above.

I'm using CNBMinecraft's version of BrowsofSteel/Cubehamsters elevator. It was the best design that I found for simplicity and effectiveness.

Ah so it goes both down and up, that explains the extra complications. Was a cool construction I must say, looks almost like a real elevator

Yeah, the idea of forcing people to jump off the top in order to get down was appealing at first, but that really cuts down on the tourists. So the elevator had to come down as well.
