KONE escalators for Foster's Singapore eco-quarter

Manufacturer to supply 52 elevators and 21 escalators to South Beach, a new 150,000 m2 mixed use eco development.

The scheme by Fosters + Partners features 50,000m2 of lettable office space, a hotel, residential apartments, and 8,000m2 of retail space. 

KONE has been involved in the project from early design stages, creating a customized People Flow solution to meet the needs of the various building types and users.

The high-rise buildings will use KONE MiniSpace elevators, of which six will travel at speeds of 8.0m/s. The office tower will feature the KONE Polaris hybrid destination control system, reducing waiting times for office workers with the use of artificial intelligence.

KONE MonoSpace machine-room-less elevators will also be used within the development. Using regenerative drives, these elevators reduce up to 35 per cent of the elevator’s total energy consumption, supplying the regenerated electrical energy back to the building’s power network.
