Tekfen Construction to build SOCAR’s new headquarter



Tekfen Construction signed a new contract of USD 235 million for the turnkey construction of SOCAR’s (State Oil Company of Azerbaijan Republic) new headquarter complex in Baku. Starting in June 2010, the project is scheduled for completion within 32 months.

Designed by Heerim Architects form South Corea, the two towered project will rise from an elongated, canopy-like podium and snake their way skywards. Curving into each other, the seemingly shorter tower almost looks like its resting its head on the chest of the taller tower, the taller towers peak slightly bending over it in a confident, reassuring manner. The towers will have 40 floors, at a height of 200 metres. Covering an area of 12,000 square metres and providing 100.000 sqm of usage area, the headquarter will mainly house office space but will also have conference and sports facilities, a guest house and retail spaces, food outlets to keep the expected 2000 employees in the tower firing on all cylinders.

Ilham Aliyev attends ground breaking ceremony of SOCAR’s new building

The ground breaking ceremony of a new administrative building of the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan Republic was held at Heydar Aliyev’s Avenue.

According to the official website of the President of Azerbaijan, the ceremony was attended by President Ilham Aliyev. Initially, the head of state watched the video and the scheme, reflecting the building in its finished state, its sketches and models.

SOCAR President Rovnag Abdullayev said that the new office building fully meeting the needs of the company will also comply with international standards. The building of 200 meters in height will consist of 40 above ground and 2 underground floors and cover 5 hectares of land.

The building design will be based on a composite system of steel construction with reinforced concrete walls. The project of the building, resistant to nine-magnitude earthquake by the Richter scale, was tested in special international labs in Canada in a virtual environment, designed for the wind with the speed of 190 kilometers per hour.

The building, designed by South Korean Heerim Architects & Planners Co. Ltd, based on the concept of "wind and fire”, will be built by Turkish TEKFEN İnşaat.

The head of state lowered the capsule into the foundation and poured concrete solution. President Ilham Aliyev congratulated the participants in the ceremony.
