KONE wins order for residential high-rises in Sydney, Australia
KONE Corporation, press release, January 20, 2014
KONE has won an order to supply 14 eco-efficient elevators to the two high-rise
towers forming Centrium Apartments, in Sydney, Australia. Once completed both
towers will offer breathtaking views of Sydney to its residents. The 47-story
tower will house residential apartments, while the 32-story second building will
house five-star serviced apartments.
KONE provided all the design assistance, energy calculations and traffic flow
solutions early in the project to provide the best possible People FlowÂ®
solution. The order includes 11 KONE MiniSpace(TM) elevators, which are well
suited for traveling long distances. Five of the elevators will travel 136
meters from the underground car park all the way up to the penthouse apartments.
All the elevators are powered by the KONE EcoDiscÂ® hoisting motor, which consume
less energy than other gearless elevators.
Centrium Apartments is being developed and constructed by Meriton. The
apartments have been designed by PTW Architects in collaboration with Meriton.
The project is expected to be completed in late 2015.
The order was booked in the third quarter 2013.
