One of the world’s busiest convention centers, the twostory Moscone Center covers nearly a full city block. Home to hundreds of world-class events, the sprawling facility serves as many as 630,000 visitors annually. Bursts of 40,000 people are not uncommon as daily events open and close. Seamless transport between the two floors is the key to smooth operations and a successful visitor experience.
Need to moderniseFaced with four aging escalators in the facility’s north wing, the building owner banked on a proven product for modernisation: KONE EcoMod™ escalators. It was a decision based on previous experience. In 2003, KONE successfully installed 6 KONE EcoMod units in the oldest part of the facility in a project later honored in a global publication competition as “Elevator World, Project of the Year” under the category of Escalator Systems. This project would, however, be conducted in one-third the time allocated for that installation.
Success of this installation is attributable to the careful and precise pre-construction planning from the KONE project management team, says Matt Paves, Senior Project Manager, Webcor Builders.
