Yangon, 20th July 2015 – Schindler, a leading global provider of elevators, escalators and related services, will supply a total of 79 elevators and 24 escalators to the Times City development located in the heart of Yangon, Myanmar.
Scheduled for completion by 2017, Times City is a mixed-use development that comprises office and residential towers, a luxury hotel and retail shop houses. Located in the prime Hanthawaddy roundabout locality, the Times City project will introduce modern living facilities, premium office spaces, comprehensive retail options and a 5-star hotel, all in one development.
Schindler worked closely with the project team of the developer, Crown Advance Construction Co. Ltd. from the early stages of building design since 2013. Schindler provided developers, architects and consultants with highly efficient building transportation solutions, including state-of-the-art Schindler 5500 machine-room-less elevators which run at speeds of 3 m/s, achieving the utmost building traffic efficiency in accordance to the most stringent international standards.
Schindler will deliver 79 elevators and 24 escalators, including 41 Schindler 3300AP elevators and 38 Schindler 5500 elevators. In addition, Schindler’s Lobby Vision, a building management tool that allows single-point supervision of multiple active systems will monitor elevators and escalators in the office towers and hotel tower.
