Permanent vertical transportation solutions at The Shard

Permanent vertical transportation solutions at The Shard

KONE was specified to deliver a permanent vertical transportation solution for The Shard in London.

The Shard is putting new punctuation to an already famous cityscape. Standing at 310 metres, this landmark building is the tallest in Western Europe.

The Shard is a multi-use vertical town rising to the equivalent of 95 stories. It brings over 111,000 square metres and 72 habitable floors of premium office space, retail stores, luxury residences, a five-star hotel, restaurants and a public viewing gallery to central London.

KONE was specified to provide permanent vertical transportation solutions. The customised lift solution was also designed to complement the building’s aesthetics.
