Shenzhen's future looks smart

Office buildings around the world are entering the intelligent era, with China at the forefront. The commercial centerpiece in Shenzhen is the China Merchants Plaza office building, which marks a milestone in the development of intelligent office space in the southern China region.

Top marks for intelligence

We were chosen to supply 21 elevators in total, including high-speed elevators. In addition, we installed a traditional KONE Polaris™ Destination Control System that is integrated with the building’s access control system. The destination control system provides enhanced security while guiding passengers to the right elevator. This ensures less crowded cars, shorter travel times and fewer stops. We also installed the KONE E-Link™ monitoring system, which provides real-time data on transportation demand, traffic performance and equipment status. 

Together, our intelligent systems guarantee a superior people flow experience for this magnificent skyscraper.

"With its many high-tech features, the tower ranks among China’s most intelligent buildings," says Shang Ruilin, KONE Project Manager.
