Kone is delivering 31 eco-efficient elevators to 5 Broadgate, a new office building under construction in City of London, the main financial district of London. The new building is going to be completed at the end of 2014.
The office building is currently being developed as a joint venture between British Land and Blackstone. British Land is also behind another current Kone London project, the Leadenhall Building also in the financial district.
- We are pleased to work with partners who share are our passion for green buildings while making no compromises in creating an excellent people flow experience, says Ari Lehtoranta, EVP and Area Director of Kone, Central and North Europe.
All the elevators will be equipped with the energy-efficient hoisting machine, which is 50-70% more efficient than elevators that use conventional lifting technologies. The compact machine rooms will be in varying locations to suit the building designs and the strict restrictions on central London planning.
