I want a trigger for a door, and an elevator

(1)So like one of those sliding doors that most elevators have. Just a button to open it and so it closes after about 5 seconds

(2)Some grouped brushes to make an elevator environment and set a button so you just press E next to a button to activate elevator.

My friend is asking me to make a 7+ story building. Sounds challenging enough for me xD

]Not very easily.

If you make your elevator a func_train, you can trigger things (like doors) when it arrives at each path_corner.

It takes a lot of entity work to get it all to work just right.

Also it probably won't work in multiplayer. The netcode is not friendly with stuff like that.

If you want a realistic elevator for 7 stories (a button on each floor to call the elevator to that floor, a door that moves with the elevator etc.), I can only say 3 words to you:
Forget about it.

It is possible but if you want it to work properly and make it so that players can't abuse any errors (like pressing invisible buttons, blocking the door that moves with the elevator, calling the elevator to their floor, while someone in the elevator is going to another floor...), you'll end up having several hundred entities, which will most likely make the map unplayable even if you manage to make it without losing yourself in all the entities.

I'm making a map on which I might try a 3-storey elevator. And my plans for it include a lot of entities. I can't imagine a 7-storey one.

Also a 7-floor building would probably be a bit too much for the engine even without the elevator, unless the floors are very small...
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

That's an interesting point Vita but the HL2 mod Minerva: Metastasis makes good usage of height in Source. It's a really refreshing change from ordinary Half-Life (and in fact although the mod is as yet unfinished the guy that made the maps has been hired by Valve. Huurah!).
