Ping An International Finance Centre (also known as Ping An IFC) is a 115-story megatall skyscraper which is under construction in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, China.[1][6] The building 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 tallest building in the world and it will be the tallest building in China.[7] The building complex also includes a planned retail bridge connecting to future developments in the south.[8] In January 2015, Malaysian daredevil photographer Keow Wee Loong [9] climbed the Ping an finance center [10] and released video footage and a photo taken from a crane at the tower's top.

Elevators[edit]

The Ping An Finance Centre will be equipped with 33 "Schindler 7000" Schindler Double Deck Lifts[4] 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.
