Dubai: Kone wins 32 elevators deal for One Central
Twenty two Kone MiniSpace elevators and 10 KONE MonoSpace elevators will enable smooth people flow in all twelve towers of the One Central project
Global elevator and escalator supplier Kone has won an order for 32 elevators and four escalators to be installed in the three buildings of One Central, a mixed-use building complex under construction in Dubai’s central business district.
Built on 104ha of land, One Central includes nearly 300,000m2 of Grade A1 offices and retail space together with five-, four-, and three-star hotels, serviced apartments, a club, and lofts.
The office buildings are designed to be of the highest environmental standards and are targeting LEED Platinum status.
Twenty two KONE MiniSpace elevators and 10 KONE MonoSpace elevators will enable smooth people flow in all of the twelve towers, which range in height from 12m to 88m. The order was booked in Q2 2016.
The Kone E-Link remote monitoring system will provide real-time information on equipment status and performance.
Pierre Liautaud, executive vice president for Kone South Europe, Middle East, and Africa, said: "The number of green or carbon-neutral buildings across the Middle East and North Africa region is on the rise. We’re excited to be part of this development with our energy-efficient solutions.”
The project's developer, Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), has enlisted Al Futtaim Carillion as the main contractor. Hopkins Architects has designed the development.
One Central is expected to complete in 2017.
