After years of high traffic use, Madison Square Garden was in need of a major renovation to meet the expectations of today’s spectators.
Renovating the iconic building was neither quick nor easy, but the transformation ensures the facility will continue to be a legendary venue well into the future.
As part of the USD 1 billion renovation, we were brought in to modernise the existing lifts and escalators, ensuring optimal people flow for the crowds of more than 18,000 frequently visiting the arena.
We installed 45 new eco-efficient escalators to fully replace the old equipment. In addition, our KONE EcoMod™ escalator modernisation solution was utilized to upgrade the entire workings of three escalators without removing the existing trusses. We also managed the installation of five new lifts.
We will maintain the equipment at Madison Square Garden and will have two service technicians on site during events to keep the equipment in peak running condition.
"The modernised equipment has advanced safety and energy-efficient features. This makes for more comfort and reliability for the passengers", says LeVaur Livingstone, KONE Regional Project Manager.
