Period: 20 months

Completion: Nov 2002

Price: $12,000,000

The project involves the construction of a modern office building in Manama Centre, Bahrain. The building is 10 stories high with a basement car park. The building envelope comprises curved glazed facades on two elevations with pre-cast concrete decorative panels forming the side elevations. Main features include bespoke curtain walling and private road accentuating the traditional entrance to the souq.

The site proved a test of engineering skills commencing with the demolition of existing buildings and a basement constructed from within a contiguous piled casement. Further adding to complication was the confined site, situated between two very congested roads and surrounding properties of either historical significance or frailty.

The building was originally designed as two independent towers, which were linked during the construction phase by a bridge from 2nd floor upwards. Building services include, chilled water air-conditioning, stand-by generators, BMS, sprinklers, and addressable fire alarm.
