KONE has won an elevator and escalator order for China Zun, a 528-meter office building in Beijing's central business district. KONE will deliver 142 elevators and escalators to what will be Beijing's tallest building when completed in 2018.

KONE's people flow solutions to China Zun will consist of 101 elevators and 41 escalators. The order includes 21 eco-efficient KONE DoubleDeck elevators that can reach speeds of 10m/s.

"We appreciate the opportunity to again prove our high-rise capability in a landmark building like this. Sustainability is one of our hallmarks and we are proud that our energy-efficient high-rise solutions will be part of China Zun," says William B. Johnson, Executive Vice President for KONE Greater China.

Jointly designed by a group of world-renowned agencies Kohn Pedersen Fox, Beijing Institute of Architectural Design, CITIC Architectural Design, Arup and Parsons Brinckerhoff, the mixed-use development is said to demonstrate efficiency, sustainability and creativity in design.

China Zun is developed by CITIC Heye Investment Co., Ltd., a subsidiary company of CITIC Group, one of the biggest state-owned companies in China, and built by the joint of China State Construction Engineering Corporation and China Construction Third Engineering Bureau Group Co. Ltd.
