Ping An International Finance Centre(also known as Ping An IFC) is a 115-story megatall skyscraper that is under construction in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, China.[1][5] The tower was commissioned by Ping An Insurance, and designed by the American architectural firm Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates. It is expected to be completed in 2016,[1] and will at that time be the 2nd or 3rd tallest building in the world, as well as the tallest in China, if Changsha's planned Sky City, which is planned to reach a height of 838 m (2,749 ft), is completed as plan and on schedule in 2015, it will overtake the Ping An Finance Centre's height of 660 metres (2,165 ft).[6] The building complex also includes a planned retail bridge connecting to future developments in the south.[7]

Elevators[edit]

The Ping An Finance Center will be equipped with 33 "Schindler 7000" Schindler Double Deck Lifts [3] with its Destination Control and Transit Management System "PORT Technology" driving with a speed up to 10 m/s

The installation of the office elevator section started in December 2013, with a completion date of April 2015.
