Egis subsidiary completes National Bank of Kuwait headquarters

Foster & Partners and Buro Happold are responsible for the project’s structure and design

Projacs International has completed the new headquarters of the National Bank of Kuwait, parent company Egis has announced. Construction works on the 300m tall skyscraper located within the Sharq financial district in Kuwait City began in 2013.

Foster & Partners and Buro Happold are jointly responsible for the project’s structure and design, which the statement notes is innovative, a true expression of Kuwaiti heritage and a leap into the future.

The designers had to ensure that the project adapts to the region’s harsh climate and includes flexible and innovative engineering solutions, said the statement from Egis.

Projacs’ scope of work included pre-construction and construction phase management, as well as securing LEED Gold certification for the sustainability, design and eco-friendly nature of the building, said a company spokesman.

He added, “The client, in their letter of appreciation, recognised Projacs’ prudent management and devoted professionals, in the view of project’s complexities, iconic seashell architecture, advanced engineering and technologies, sustainable features, claims and disputes resolutions, quality assurance and cost controls.”
