KONE, a Finnish manufacturer of elevators and escalators, has secured a contract to deliver 13 elevators for The University of Kansas Hospital Cambridge North Tower expansion project.

Under the deal, KONE will supply nine EcoSystem MR elevators and four MonoSpace elevators.

Compared to traditional traction elevators, the EcoSystem MR elevator uses half the overhead machine room space. It offers superior ride quality while adhering to an energy efficient design that accommodates buildings of up to roughly 60 floors.

The KONE MonoSpace elevator is a machine roomless solution that uses no oil, consumes less energy and creates more usable real estate for building owners.

"We’re honoured to provide safe and smart flow of people throughout the hospital’s new tower."

KONE Americas executive vice-president Larry Wash said: "We’re proud to work with The University of Kansas Hospital on its exciting new expansion.

"Such a prestigious institution in the Midwest, nationally ranked in all 12 medical and surgical specialties, deserves vertical transportation solutions that are also award winning.

"We’re honoured to provide safe and smart flow of people throughout the hospital’s new tower."

Located at 39th and Cambridge streets in Kansas City, the Cambridge North Patient Tower is being developed northeast of existing hospital buildings with an investment of $280m.

The seven-storey facility will include 92 beds and 12 operating rooms, serving growing specialty areas such as neurosciences and surgical oncology, including ear, nose and throat cancers.

The facility, which will include 28 intensive care beds, a lab, pharmacy and imaging, is expected to start operations in 2017.
