Yangon, Myanmar – Schindler 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 the study and provision of highly efficient building transportation solutions, including the state-of-the-art Schindler 5500 machine-room-less elevators which run at speeds of 3 m/s. This allows the development to achieve the utmost building traffic efficiency in accordance to the stringent international standards.
Schindler will deliver 79 elevators and 24 escalators, including 41 Schindler 3300AP elevators and 38 Schindler 5500 elevators. In addition, Schindler will be providing its proprietary Lobby Vision, a building management tool that allows single-point supervision of multiple active systems to monitor the elevators and escalators in the project.
“We are very proud and excited to supply Schindler equipment to Times City, which is the largest elevator & escalator project ever awarded in Myanmar,” said Mr. Willis Phua, the General Manager of Myanmar Jardine Schindler.
