KONE Corporation, press release, 20 January 2014
KONE has won an order to supply 14 eco-efficient lifts 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-storey tower will house residential apartments, while the 32-storey 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) lifts, which are well suited for travelling long distances. Five of the lifts will travel 136 metres from the underground car park all the way up to the penthouse apartments. All the lifts are powered by the KONE EcoDisc® hoisting motor, which consume less energy than other gear-less lifts.
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.
