After years of high traffic use, Madison Square Garden was in need of a major renovation to meet the expectations of today’s spectators.
As part of the USD 1 billion renovation, KONE were brought in to modernise the existing lifts and escalators, ensuring optimal people flow for the crowds of more than 18,000 frequently visiting the arena.
KONE installed 45 new eco-efficient escalators to fully replace the old equipment. In addition, the KONE EcoMod™ escalator modernisation solution was utilized to upgrade the entire workings of three escalators without removing the existing trusses. KONE also managed the installation of five new lifts.
KONE will maintain the equipment at Madison Square Garden and will have two service technicians on site during events to keep the equipment in peak running condition.
