Schindler selected as sole mobility solution provider for Poland’s award-winning Warsaw Spire

Schindler underlines its reputation as partner-of-choice supplying leading technology mobility solutions to landmark buildings. 

Double-deck efficiency

The company has been given the assignment to ensure people mobility in Warsaw Spire’s ca. 100,000 m² of office space. A total of 41 Schindler elevators will be installed, including 14 Schindler 7000 high-rise double-deck elevators; elevators with two stacked cars that can service two floors simultaneously. Schindler will also be supplying its award winning destination control system, PORT Technology.

"The Warsaw Spire will be the first building in Poland, and one of the few in Europe, to be equipped with double-deck elevators. I am proud that we have such highly qualified expertise at Schindler that is well prepared to realize such challenging projects." said Andrzej Stawniak, General Director, Schindler Poland.

Award winning architecture

The design – that won the “Architectural Design of the year, Poland” in 2011 – redefines urban office space and will include trees, fountains, shops and restaurants. Two 55 meter high buildings will stand at the base of a breathtaking 220 meter spire in the middle.  

Newest energy efficient products

Schindler will also install 27 units of its newest innovation, the Schindler 5500 elevator with its regenerative-drive technology, energy-saving LED lighting and ecoMode operation. And of course the elevators are being designed to fit the interior concept of the architect for color, material and ambiance.

The new Warsaw Spire complex will also receive 4 Schindler 9300AE escalators. The 9300AE uses a special drive system and rise angle to lower energy by as much as 27% compared to earlier escalators.

Large project expertise

Chosen by Ghelamco Poland Sp. z o.o., Schindler will be the sole supplier of mobility solutions for this futuristic office building in the heart of the Polish capital. Schindler was awarded the contract for its large-scale project expertise and for state-of-the-art products using green technology.
