The new United States Embassy compound in Ethiopia is to amalgamate four separate U.S. agencies in to a single facility in the middle of next month.

The embassy is said to be the largest in Sub-Saharan Africa, according to Thomas I. FitzPatrick, the project director.



Construction work on the embassy started in January 2008 with a plan of amalgamating four separate agencies into the facility. Currently, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Center for Disease Control (CDC), the U.S. Mission to the African Union and the bilateral U.S. Mission to Ethiopia are housed in four separate buildings in three different compounds.

The amalgamation of these agencies into a single facility was meant for the enhancement of daily coordination and for leading this to a more effective long-term implementation of the U.S. Global Health Initiative. The amalgamation will also save a considerable amount of time lost each day while shuttling between the agencies. To ease the working process for consulate and visa appliers, the Bank of Abyssinia is also going to have representation for financial transaction purposes. The new embassy will be certified as a leadership in energy and environmental design facility.

“Operating in a green environment is of importance to the Obama Administration conduct of diplomacy overseas in energy-efficient buildings,” Mr. FitzPatrick told The Reporter.

B.L. Harbert International LLC, an American company, assumed the overall design and construction of the new compound; and the planning architect was Zimmer Gunsul Frasca (ZGF) ZGF was assisted by DTN Engineering in Addis Ababa on the site work.

Costing a total of 126.7 million dollars for design and construction, the new embassy covers an area of 19,894 sq.m. The project has resulted in approximately 18.2 million dollars in sub-contracts to Ethiopian contractors. It has also provided employment opportunities to about 1,500 local workers. The consolidation of those agencies has required the embassy to study the overall staffing of the mission. However, given the state-of-the art facility, it will immediately recruit 12 technical staff for maintenance purpose.

B.L. Harbert International LLC, which have over 25 years of experience in building embassies in Africa, took over five local workers who had earned skills during the project and shift them to the new project. Likewise, the company will take between five and 10 Ethiopian employees to the next job in Dakar, Senegal, Billy L. Harbert president, and CEO of the company, told The Reporter.

oh! the auditorium and library of the university seems very nice, thanks for the information.

I hope they build cultural institutions and encourage the historic investigation, because we know very little about ethiopia(I mean, people from other places), but you have a great history and probably there are lot of things that we don' know

Development Plan For New Parliament
Parliament has requested that the city administration carries out a Local Development Plan outside Menelik Palace gate where it wants to construct much needed new office space.


A development plan is to be drawn up by the city administration for a new parliament building in front of the gate of Menelik Palace.

A shortage of offices in the current compound at Arat Kilo, which Parliament shares with the House of the Federation, is what prompted the request for the Local Development Plan on August 26, 2008.

“We are faced with shortage of offices. Thus the government has decided to construct a new multi-purpose edifice,” Degife Bula, speaker of the House of Federation told Fortune.

The site is located between the Lorenzo Tezaz and Colson streets, It is currently occupied by: The Palace Garage; privately owned houses and shops; a Kebele administration; and the Agency for Government Houses (AGH). When Parliament finalizes preparation to construct the complex, all of them will be relocated.

“Four years ago, when we first heard that the plot was granted to Parliament, businesses in the area had established a share company. However, because there were no activities to construct the complex afterwards, our share company faded away,” Tesfaye Birega, owner of a Tej (traditional liquor made of honey) shop told Fortune. “Now is the time for us to come together again.”

According to a regulation by the Council of Ministers, constructions for government purposes are mainly the mandate of the Ministry of Works and Urban Development (MoWUD). Therefore the ministry will undertake the construction of the building.

The Parliament’s complex is expected to house its main convention hall, offices for the 547 MPs, the administrative staff, the 13 standing committees and the whips from both the Ruling Ethiopian Peoples’ Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) and the opposition political parties.

However, until now no plan has been undertaken to identify the kind of buildings to be erected on the plot.

“Parliament has requested us to undertake the plan and we would include it in our plan for the 2008/09 fiscal year,” Mekuria Haile, City general manager told Fortune.

[..]

Officials at the two houses have not yet reached an agreement on whether to transform the current Parliament building in to a museum, or to give it back to the House of Federation once Parliament has moved to its new building.

Degife, however, hopes that both houses would move to the huge structure and the current Parliament building would become a museum.

Embassy Ethiopia / Bjarne Mastenbroek and Dick Van Gameren

Architects: Bjarne Mastenbroek and Dick Van Gameren
Location: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Design: Bjarne Mastenbroek, Dick Van Gameren
Assistants: Lada Hrsak, Wilmar Groenendijk, Jack Hoogeboom, Jeroen van Mechelen, Matteo Fosso, Miguel Loos, Michael Davis
Client: Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs
Completion Date: 2005

The compound of the Dutch Embassy consists of a five-hectare wooded area that slopes steeply towards the city. The design task was to situate the five individual buildings in the compound while retaining and enhancing the quality of the site’s landscape. The strict horizontal volume of the main building cuts into the hill with the sloping terrain naturally dividing the building into two programmatic units; the ambassador’s residence and the chancellery.






The Embassy roof is a shallow pool, an element that combines Dutch tradition in water management and landscape technology, with the natural craggy countryside of Ethiopia. As in the Netherlands everyone lives and works under water. The building is visible at both ends and as the landscape slopes gradually upwards it disappears temporarily, transforming into a pool among the eucalyptus trees.

The other elements of the programme are articulated in a similarly ‘camouflaged’ way; the gatehouse peeks above the entrance wall, wrapped in the colours of the Dutch flag, the extension to the house of the deputy ambassador is slid underneath an existing villa and the three staff houses are built between the north double-wall of the compound.

Ethiopia Completes Addis Railway Project 25 Percent
Ethiopian government said 25 (twenty five) percent of the 37.4 kilometers Addis Ababa Light Rail Project being constructed by the China Rail Engineering Corporation (CREC) is completed.

The announcement was made at the opening of the Ethiopian Railway Standard Development Workshop held at Hilton Hotel on Tuesday, April 2. The workshop featured about 17 engineering consulting firms from countries such as Russia, Brazil, India and India, and featured as its guest speaker state minister of Transport Getachew Mengiste.

The railway stretches mainly from Defence Forces Hospital to Ayat Village, which is 17.26Km, with other tracks that will lead from Meskel Square to Kality (16.246Km) and the 3.875Km rail line from Lideta to Menilik Square.

Formal work had started on the project on February 1, 2012, although the project was signed in 2009 suffering several delays in the commencement of the work process, with its work period being two years.

Speaking at the occasion (Eng.), (Dr.) Getachew Betru Director General of the Ethiopian Railway Corporation (ERC) said the 667 kilometers Ethio-Djibouti railway being undertaken separately by two Chinese firms has already had 13 percent of its portion completed.

The firms currently undertaking this project are for the Addis Ababa-Meiso Railway section being CREC with a total construction period of 42 months with a grace period of plus six months, with commencement date being February 12, 2012 and time of completion February 11, 2016.

The second section going from Mieso- Dawnale on the border with Djibouti is being currently undertaken by the China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC), with a construction period of 42 months plus 10 months grace period. The deal for the project was signed on December 16th, 2012.

light rail progressing

Ethiopian Railways Corporation (ERC) revealed details of the Addis Light Rail Project around Adwa and St. Abune Petros squares, which were centres of confusion recently.


The detailed design shows the railEthiopian Railway Corporation - Addis Ababa light rail transit project detail route, which starts from Adwa Square, will be an underground tunnel stretching up to two kilometres.

“As a result, the Menelik II statue will remain intact,” Dr. Getachew Betru, Director of ERC, told a joint press conference with other stakeholders Thursday. “The statue will not be affected by the project neither during the construction nor operational phase,” Dr. Getachew stressed.

The construction, however, will not spare the statue of St. Abune Petros, which was erected in 1941 in memory of the archbishop of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church who was killed by fascist Italian invaders for his support of the national patriots’ movement against Italian aggressors.

“The statue of Abune Petros will be removed during the construction phase as it is en route the underground tunnel,” Dr. Getachew said. “But this is only temporary and it will be erected once the construction is completed.”

The contractor, China Railway Group Limited (CREC), had fenced the area and digging of a 20 metres deep tunnel for the concrete wall is underway.


Culture and Tourism Bureau head Gebre-Stadik Hagos said a committee, which will oversea the removal and subsequent reinstatement of the statue of St. Abune Petros has been formed . The committee is comprised of the city’s Culture and Tourism Bureau, Research and Conservation of Cultural Heritage Authority, Addis Ababa City Roads Authority and ERC.

“The task of removing and temporarily erecting the statue at the national museum will be delicately carried out,” Yonas Desta, Director of Addis Ababa Research and Conservation of Cultural Heritage Authority said “The statue will be reinstated at exactly the same place,” Yonas said. ERC commenced the 34.25 kms double track electrified light rail transit project in December 2011 after securing funds from Exim Bank of China.

The two line rail tracks extend 17.35kms from east to west direction stretching from Ayat Village to Tor Hailoch passing through Megenagna, Legehar and Mexico. In the north to south direction, a 16.9-kms rail track will pass through Menelik Square, Merkato, Lideta, Legehar, Maskal Square, Gotera and Kaliti. The two directions will have a common track of about 2.8-kms.

The Addis Ababa Light Rail Transit will have a total of 41 rails each with a capacity to carry 286 passengers. This will enable the light rail transit to provide transportation service to 15,000 people per hour in one direction and 60,000 in all four directions.

The corporation plans to complete 42 per cent of the project this budget year, including 80 per cent of soil and civil works.

IT park project | U/C

Addis Ababa, February 23 (WIC) – The first phase of the Information Technology (IT) Park project, on which construction began three years ago, will be finalized next year, according to the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MCIT).

The Park which lies in an area of 200 hectares of land is located at Addis Ababa on the eastern side of Bole International Airport, just a few kilometers away from the center of Addis Ababa.

“The first phase with an area of approximately 70 hectares which consisted of MCIT Headquarter, data and incubation centers is expected to be completed next year,” Beker Seid, Communication and Public Service Head of MCIT told WIC.

The second phase is expected to be finalized after three years, he said.

The establishment of the IT Park would help attract overseas investment, generate foreign earnings, stimulate growth of domestic ICT industry and create employment and career opportunities for Ethiopian citizens, he said.

Upon full build-out, the IT Park will generate job opportunities for about 300,000 compatriots, he indicated.

According to Beker, the IT Park is expected to cost from 800-900 million birr to be fully financed by the government of Ethiopia.

The project positions Ethiopia 2nd in IT Park in Eastern Africa next to Kenya, he indicated.

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia - Ethiopian Airlines is conducting fresh negotiations with international companies for the design, construction, vendor finance and management of the four star hotel it intends to develop.

“Ethiopian could settle on a company within 15 days, if all requested documents are submitted by the bidding companies,” an official from the facility planning section, under the Alliances & Corporate Strategic Planning Department, told Fortune. “We have been given the direction to expedite the process as soon as possible.”

Around 10 companies, from China, South Africa and the United States were selectively invited in December 2012. Ethiopian opened bid offers for the project on February 28, 2013. The airline declined to disclose the number and names of companies that it is currently negotiating with, but Fortune has learnt from reliable external sources that at least two Chinese companies are involved in current negotiations.

Ethiopian has been attempting to find a partner to build and manage the international standard hotel it plans to erect on 40,000sqm of land across from the Millennium Hall, on the newly revamped African Avenue, since 2009.

During that year, it held negotiations with the China-Africa Development (CD) Fund and HNA Hotels & Resorts Group (HNA Group), and signed a 60 million dollar joint venture agreement, whereby Ethiopian would have a 53pc share in the business.

The three-way agreement did not pan out, as the other parties did not reply in a timely manner to the deal, according to representatives from the Public Relations office of Ethiopian Airlines.

Another closed invitation was sent out in March 2012, but it was dropped because there were not enough responses, according to the representatives from the public relation office.

Ethiopian will evaluate the current batch of offers using three criteria.

“They have to bring an offer for the design, a firm loan offer from banks and a hotel management company as a partner, for which costs are included within the offer,” an official from Ethiopian Airlines said.

Since they are required to bring a firm offer or guarantee from banks, participating companies are not requested to offer bid bonds for the project, according to the official.

A bid committee of four people is evaluating the offers currently. It has already opened the technical evaluations and will negotiate on the financial offers, according to the official Fortune talked to.

ADDIS ABABA | Tigat Shopping Center | 10 Floors| Approved


Habesha’s Eyes Land on Rama
The Tigat Shopping Centre will be a multi-purpose building, including a 90-bedroom hotel in one wing


Construction firm, Habesha Construction & Materials Development (HC&MD), has selected Rama Construction PLC for the construction of a 10-storey shopping centre at a cost of 123.9 million Br.

The two companies will sign the contract at Hilton Hotel on Monday, February 4, 2013.

The building, named Tigat Shopping Centre, will occupy a 2,100sqm plot next to Axum Hotel, located on Haile Gebreselassie Street. It will be a mixed-use building, hosting shops, offices and a four star 90-bedroom hotel.

The total cost for the centre’s construction, of which Rama will only handle structural works, currently stands at 233 million Br.

Tigat Shopping Centre belongs to shareholders of the company by the same name, which was set up nine years ago. Realising that the area where their shops were located was designated as a development area, six people came up with the idea of developing the land themselves.

They brought in an additional 10 people and formed the company with a capital of 9.6 million Br, according to Yelebe Molla, board chairman of Tigat, who has previously worked at both the Development Bank of Ethiopia (DBE) and the Commercial Bank of Ethiopia (CBE).

Tigat then entered into a joint venture (JV) agreement with HC&MD, whereby the latter would manage the project, including handling the design, building and sale of the space, on a profit sharing basis, in October 2011.

Later, after five shareholders left the company, Habesha, which is involved in real estate development and production of construction materials, bought a 40pc share in the company, becoming a major shareholder.

Habesha has leased 1,067sqm of land independently, since its establishment in May 2010, whilst developing 64,840sqm of land with other companies in partnership. It has apartment sites in Ayat and Kirkos District, and has so far sold 349 houses and 25 shops for a total of 386 million Br.

The design for the building was done by Shigez Consulting, a Chinese based company, for a fee of around 480,000 Br. The building itself will have two basements, a ground floor and a mezzanine, in addition to the 10 storeys. The hotel will be located in one wing, starting from the fourth floor.

Rama is expected to finalise the structure of the shopping centre within a year and a half.

The project will be among many that Rama Construction PLC, one of the top grade contractors in the country, engaged in road, industry, real estate and building construction, is involved in. Its recent projects in Addis Abeba, include the 7.5 million dollar expansion works for the United Nations Economic Commission of Africa (UNECA) and the construction of Odda Tower, a mixed-use building across from Zemen Bank, on Tito Street.

The company has already sold 45pc of the total space, according to Eskinder Desta, managing director of Habesha Construction and the person behind its Parent company, Habesha Capital Services PLC, which also has a share in Habesha Cement and Habesha Brewery share companies. Without considering the hotel space, for which HC&MD is negotiating with an undisclosed group, 75pc of the space has been sold, according to Eskinder.

The current cost of buying shops in the first three malls is 350,000 Br. Offices cost more, with a starting price of 750,000 Br for a 50sqm space.

Use: Entertainment, Film

Status
: Planning



Sebastopol Looking to Build City’s Biggest Cinema Complex


Sebastopol Entertainment Plc is to construct a two-tower, four-storey multiplex on a 948sqm plot it has leased, in Arada District, for seven million Birr. The largest cinema theatre that is expected to change the industry is to be built on the corner of Haileselassie Street and Adwa Street in Arada District on a 948sqm plot. With 10 cinemas in total, Sebastopol aims to change the way films are watched in Ethiopia.

Construction is expected to cost 50 million Br and will begin in June 2013. The first tower will have 10 cinema screens, five of which will seat 250 people, whilst the largest will accommodate 1,000 cinema goers. The four remaining screens will have seats for between 400 and 600 people.

The second tower will mainly be used as an entertainment centre, with play areas for children, as well as a food court that will serve a variety of cuisines, according to Tewodros. “The building will also have a film studio that will be able to accommodate the following settings: court, hospital, police station and hotels, in addition to having the full equipment that film makers may require,” he said.

Tewodros came into the film business as writer, director and producer of Gilbit Alem, before establishing Sebastopol Entertainment Plc, in 2005, with a four million Birr capital. The company currently operates Sebastopol Cinema at the Addis Abeba Exhibition Centre, which has two theatres, named Kuara and Mekdela, in remembrance of King Tewodros I. So far, Tewodros has produced eight movies, including the best selling film Kezkaza Welafen.
