SAB PROGRESS18th of January 2018
Construction works are progressing for the new bank headquarter for SAB in Leipzig. Due to the high ground water table, extensive piling works were needed to create a watertight box extending 40m below ground. This has allowed for the demolition of the 3m thick Robotron foundations that had previously remained stuck in the ground below the water. With all demolition now completed, works have finally commenced on the new basement slab, and the cores are scheduled to rise in February.
MUSCAT HARBOUR PLAZA UPDATE4th of January 2018
The Al Mouj central square in Muscat, Oman is starting to take shape. Located at the intersection between the main boulevard and the harbour, this plaza will form the public heart of Al Mouj, the award winning new urban quarter that is expanding the Muscat coastal strip towards the airport.
Shaded by a canopy inspired by the patterns of traditional Omani architecture, the Plaza will be a shaded gathering space for residents, a leisure destination for visitors and a performance arena for events. The ground will be stepped to for a natural auditorium to host a variety of uses. Open on two sides to the harbour, the space will form the public edge of the marina, allowing pedestrians to enjoy the proximity of the water, its changing reflections and its coolness.
