Schindler wins Santa Clara contract

Schindler Elevator has been awarded a multi-million-dollar contract with Santa Clara Stadium Authority to provide mobility systems for the new San Francisco 49ers stadium in Santa Clara, California. The contract includes 25 elevators, including 18 Schindler 400AE mid-rise machine room-less units, as well as 38 Schindler 9300AE escalators.

Architecture firm HNTB and Turner Devcon Joint Venture (TDJV), will design and build the new 1.85 million ft2, 68,500 seat Santa Clara Stadium, which will feature open pedestrian plazas, commercial community space, a 49ers team store, and a 49ers Hall of Fame. The stadium is designed to be used for a wide range of events, including professional and college football, soccer, motocross, concerts and civic events.

Contributing to the stadium’s long list of sustainable design concepts, the Schindler 400AE elevator system uses high-efficiency AC gearless machines to reduce energy usage and Power Factor 1 drives that regenerate energy back into the building’s electric system where it can be used to power the lighting, air conditioning or other equipment. The elevator cabs are equipped with energy-efficient compact fluorescent lighting.

The Schindler 9300AE escalator’s optimised drive system is perfectly matched to the demands of the rise, allowing motor power to drop by as much as 27% compared with earlier escalator models.
