Schindler understands how demanding public structures are. They have to provide mobility without interruption and restricted access - all at the same time. Schindler supports you at all stages, from determining specifications, to service and maintenance agreements after installation.
Public areas must be barrier-free and Schindler mobility solutions meet all handicap regulations. Schindler makes sure this is done by providing assistance during planning, selection and placement of the appropriate elevator or escalator. Schindler products are hassle-free for everyone.
For efficient mobility to restricted areas, you need to manage access. At Schindler this begins during project development and continues through installation. Schindler has significant experience ensuring government-run projects comply with official regulations and norms. Our products are safe, secure and reliable.
The University of Hong Kong, the territory's oldest institute of higher learning started the Centennial Campus expansion project in order to meet the University's needs over the next 10 to 15 years. Prior the design and planning stage, environmental, ecological, sustainability and heritage issues, efficient use of space and effective integration were perceived as priporities among the community.
The choice of building material and equipment taks account of durability and long-term maintenance issues as well as energy consumption.
The overall environmentally sound design strategically sites and orients to capture the natural light, heat, breeze and storm water and to reduce the use of energy.
Schindler’s Green elevators and escalators are selected in this development. Schindler supplied 17 elevators, including Schindler 7000 and Schindler 5400AP as well as 18 escalators to this campus development.
The Schindler 7000 elevators are equipped with regenerative drive. Schindler Power Factor One (PF1) converters ensure a high level of energy efficiency, where it allows power regenerated by the elevator to be consumed by other electrical appliances in the building. The efficiency oil free permanent magnet gearless motor in elevators and LED escalator skirt lighting allow further energy saving.
