Kone Elevators will be installing 26 elevators and 20 escalators for the Indooroopilly Shopping Centre redevelopment project in Brisbane, Australia.
The project order also includes modernisation of the mechanical and electrical components of 10 escalators and four autowalks in the existing centre. Kone’s innovative and customised solutions will improve the flow of both people and goods within the shopping mall.
Kone’s involvement began in the early stages of the project to create an optimal People Flow design in the retail environment to benefit the supermarkets, department stores and high-end shops as well as increase the convenience for shoppers.
The eco-efficient solutions moving people around include 10 Kone S3000 MonoSpace elevators for passengers, 14 Kone TravelMaster 110 escalators, which are especially designed for demanding commercial environments as well as six Kone TravelMaster 115 inclined autowalks. Additionally, 16 Kone TranSys freight elevators, which will accommodate roller cages and pallets for efficient restocking, will ensure optimised flow of goods within the shopping centre.
The Indooroopilly Shopping Centre refurbishment is expected to be completed in mid-2014. The order was booked in the first quarter of 2012.
