Naberezhnaya Tower

The building

The towers, which are grouped around a central space, have bowed glass and metal façades. Naberezhnaya Tower A (20 floors) and B (30 floors) are standing firm, while their neighbour, Naberezhnaya Tower C (65 floors) is the tallest buildings in Europe at 268 meters (880 ft).

The solution

In Tower A, conventional control with up-and-down call buttons is used. Tower B is divided into two zones, and is equipped with KONE hybrid destination control  with destination operating panels located on the entrance floor, and normal up-and-down call buttons on other floors. Tower C is divided into three zones and has a full destination control system integrated with the building security system and turnstiles. In this tower destination operating panels are placed on every floor.
