Colmore Plaza's requirements were not just to provide lifts but to help control passenger flow. Despite high traffic people flow particularly at busy times, the customer wanted to make the journey for employees as smooth and efficient as possible, in, out and around the building.
KONE provided elevators with matching wood finishes in the elevator cars, integrated fire and evacuation elevators and full evacuation elevators.
To control people flow, KONE provided DCS - destination control system. When entering the building, the passenger selects their destination floor when going through the turnstile at the front of the building at the DOP (destination control panel). The passenger then walks to the lift they have been assigned, saving time and increasing comfort and convenience.
What is People Flow®?
People Flow means people moving smoothly, safely, comfortably, and without waiting in and between buildings.
