Kone has won an order to supply 14 eco-efficient elevators to the two high-rise towers forming Centrium Apartments, in Sydney, Australia. 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 Flow® 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 EcoDisc® 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.
