Singapore, 1 December 2013 – Schindler won a new contract to supply elevators for the high profile SGD 7 billion Marina One project, the first of two projects developed by M+S Pte Ltd, the joint venture between Malaysia’s Khazanah National and Singapore’s Temasek Holdings.
Scheduled for completion by 2017, Marina One will rise at the heart of Singapore’s new Central Business District. With its enviable location at Marina South, the project is a vast, 3.67 million square feet integrated development. It will include two 30-story office towers and two 34-story luxury residence towers, linked with a retail podium and a lush sanctuary, dubbed “The Heart”, featuring waterfalls and rooftop gardens.
The project’s groundbreaking architectural design, unveiled in February by the Prime Ministers of Malaysia and Singapore, received several awards, including for Best High Rise Architecture, Best Mixed-use Architecture and Best Mixed-use Development at the Asia Pacific Property Awards.
The Marina One Residences consist of 1,042 units of luxury city residences and will offer an excellent host of communal facilities and tropical living in the vicinity of the sprawling 101 hectare Gardens by the Bay.
Schindler will supply 34 elevators for the two residential towers, including thirty units of Schindler 7000 high rise elevators. The Schindler 7000 elevators boast the smoothest, quietest and most spacious ride through the building with high speed in 4 meter per second.
All units will adopt Schindler’s clean Power Factor One (PF1) regenerative drive technology & integrated control system, Lobby Vision. The PF1 regenerative drive enables power generated by the elevator to be fed back into the building’s electricity grid, consuming up to 30% less energy than comparable elevators. The Lobby Vision is a management tool that allows single-point supervision of multiple active systems.
"With this iconic project, Schindler reinforces its leading market position in the prime location of Singapore that is the Marina Bay area”, says Hugo Martinho, Managing Director of Schindler Lifts Singapore.
