Kone Elevators won recognition at the Elevator World’s Project of the Year awards for their contribution in two major international projects.
Kone won awards for the best ‘New construction, Elevators’ and the best ‘Escalator modernization’ project for their work in Singapore and Illinois, US respectively.
Kone manufactured and installed 152 elevators and 10 escalators for the Marina Bay Sands project in Singapore.
Marina Bay Sands is an integrated resort featuring three hotel towers and crowned by a bridging sky park. Other buildings at the resort include a museum, retail space, convention and exhibition centre, two theatres and a casino.
Kone also played a major role in the modernisation project for the College of Pharmacy building at the University of Illinois, US. Kone provided better accessibility to the building where the defunct escalators had been used as stairs for years.
Kone completed the project three-and-a-half months ahead of schedule using the effective Kone EcoMod modernisation solution.
