This major, new build commercial development will provide 60,000 sq m of office space and comprises dramatic twin, mirrored 14-storey towers. Connected centrally by an atrium and entranceway, the shared space contains a majestic water feature alongside lush greenery, welcoming both the bank’s customers and staff.
Due to the sensitive nature of Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank’s (ADIB) operations, and heightened security, our design brief included a requirement to provide for a high level of resilience to the electrical and mechanical systems underpinning the critical bank services, particularly in relation to the power, data and communications systems.
Our duties covered the shell and core for the entire building and the Cat A and Cat B fit out for the areas of the building to be occupied by ADIB. The scope developed due to our successful, ongoing relationship with ADIB and evolved to include including building services, sustainability, acoustics, fire engineering and facade access during the development of the scheme.
