This visit was ideal for ICE Student & Graduate members to gain valuable insights into modern site practices.

The building will be the Bank's flagship head office which has a total floor area of circa 54,000m², of which there is 28,000m² of basement car parking set over 2 levels, and 26,000m² of above ground level floors spread over 7 floors. The 7 floors comprise retail branch, coffee shop, 200 seater auditorium, events hall, general office and executive office space, and full height internal atrium.

The internal atrium and external façade have been inspired by the unique topography, geology and culture of the Sultanate. Current works on site involve installation of the external stone cladding system, installation of the internal ceiling MEP services (first fix), placement of the heavy plant (AHU's, transformers, RMU's), and installation of the internal wall partition systems.
