Pearl River Tower, Guangzhou, China (video show)
The Pearl River Tower was designed with energy efficiency in mind. Its roof is lined with solar panels and therefore has no terrace space to install BMUs. All BMUs are housed within the building and are launched from retracting panels.
The CoxGomyl building access solution consists of three pairs of BMUs located in different positions. The first pair of BMUs located at level 69 are designed to service the side panels of the building on east and west elevations. Four-stage telescopic jibs have the ability to luff and slew to reach the topmost panel of the building’s end elevation.
There are another two pairs of BMUs housed at the mechanical floors on level 69 and level 48 respectively to service the front and rear elevations of the building.
