ADDIS ABABA | National Insurance Company HQ | 40 F | Competition
State Insurance Firm Seeks New HQ Design
http://addisfortune.net/wp-content/u...su_comp_hq.jpg




The Ethiopian Insurance Corporation (EIC) has at long last invited architectural design firms to register their interest in the design of its two-billion Birr, 40-storey high HQ.

The design firms will pay a refundable 10,000 Br deposit, in order to collect the registration form, according to an engineer at the Corporation. The registration, which started on July 29, will end on August 12, 2013. So far, around eight architectural firms have registered, he says.

“Even though starting the design work after more than 10 years of delay cannot be considered a great achievement, it is at least good to hear that the project has restarted,” says Yewondwossen Eteffa, CEO of the Corporation.

The firms will submit their design works by mid-October, according to Haileleul Tessema, facilities director at the Corporation. Selection of the winning entry will be undertaken in partnership with the Ethiopian Architects Association.

The building will stand on a 12,000sqm plot opposite the Ambassador Theatre, along Ras Desta Damtew Street. Out of this, the EIC has been holding 3,300sqm since 2003; it added the 8,700sqm of adjacent land, across the Gordeme River, in 2012, for a lease price of 27 million Br.

The Corporation expected to receive the new plot from the Addis Abeba City Land Management Bureau after paying seven million Birr compensation, in June 2012, to 14 private owners and 66 tenants of kebele-owned housing. These individuals were relocated to new areas. It is yet to receive the land, however, as the City Administration has not yet agreed on a deal with two more private home owners.

“We believe that this large tract of land enables us to build an edifice in fitting with the Corporation’s history and status,” says Yewondwossen.

Nevertheless, a construction bid is expected to be announced within two years, even though previous bids were repeatedly annulled for a variety reasons. These included the Board of Directors rejecting the selected contractors, as well as the Public Financial Enterprises Supervisory Agency cancelling bid entries.

Additional factors for the long delay include new regulations governing the number of storeys for buildings constructed in “commercial areas”, as well as the Corporation’s high turnover of CEOs. Since 2003, when the Corporation initially planned to begin construction, four different CEOs have administered the EIC.

“Whenever a new CEO arrived, changes in the plan of what the building should look like were introduced,” says Haileleul, who also served as a member of the Organisation & Management Committee tasked with working on the construction process of the multipurpose building.

The EIC, established in 1976 during the Derg regime by the merger of 13 expropriated insurance firms, has had its first HQ – the 11-storey building along Ras Mekonnen Avenue – since 1987. The design was conducted by National Consultants. The EIC owns 17 different buildings across the country, six of them in Addis Abeba.

Name: Zefmesh Mall

Location
: Yeka District, ADDIS ABABA

Size
: 7 fl

Use
: Retail

Status: Proposal


Zefmesh Private Limited Company is set to open the grandest mall complex in Ethiopia; lying on nine thousand square meters with seven floors to accommodate entertainment and refreshment ranging from supermarkets to cinema houses.

Nega Asfaha Project Management Consultant for Zefmesh Grand mall project said the actual building lies on four thousand square meters of land and be open in six months. The ground floors are expected to accommodate small to medium sized shops. Kaldi’s café will be there and there will be parking space for 450 cars. Three hundred fifty will be open air parking spaces and 100 in the basement.

The building will have many entrances with a capacity of up to one thousand visitors at once together with an expansive lobby and three panoramic elevators two of whom can hold 14 people at once each and the other one can hold 24 people at once which he claimed was second only to the US embassy elevators. It has also eight escalators and stairways for pedestrians. The elevator technology is from the famous US firm Otis. Another point Nega emphasized was that the building from ground floor up to the third floor is expected to have 300 assorted shops capacity with so far he claimed a thousand interested parties applying for it.

The basement supermarket which will lie on 3200sqm Shoa supermarket plans to open one of the biggest stores in Ethiopia there.
Modern movie theaters will be on the fourth floor with the newest international films. Three cinema houses will be able to hold around 1200 people and have VIP seating. It’s also expected to have special handicap ramp access and a spacious snack area. The largest cinema house will have a backstage for live performances. Handicapped parking will also be available.
One rather unique feature Nega said will be a smoker’s area on the terraces of the building in order to respect the rights of smokers without disturbing the health of non-smokers.

However he reiterated that the project has also rooms for traditional and art centers housing bookstores, sculptures and traditional clothes to be placed exclusively in the fifth floor while the sixth floor is expected to house a family entertainment center equipped with an Arcade and Game room and an exclusive kid’s platform.

Not to be outdone in innovation the sixth floor will have a lobby for mother and nannies to breastfeed and change the diapers of babies while the seventh and last floor will have a food court complete with spectacular views of Addis on four sides and a tropical garden in between it. Nega elaborated that the building place located in Megenegna area in Yeka district was chosen because of its strategic commercial and residential district.

Ethiopia: NIB Signs Billion Birr Tender With Chinese Company for Construction of New Headquarters
BY BEWKET ABEBE, 25 AUGUST 2013

From Left: Kibru Fondja, president of NIB, Zhao Sanbao, assistant manager of China Railway No.3 Engineering Group Co.LTD, and Hailemariam Assefa, chief executive officer of the NIC congratulating one another after signing the agreement.

The Nib International Bank S.C (NIB) and Nib Insurance Corporation S.C (NIC) hired the China Railway No. 3 Engineering Group Co. Ltd for the construction of their 35-storey headquarters, in an agreement signed on Thursday, August 22, 2013.

The design was completed two years ago, when the companies had only 2,800sqm of land. Since then it has added an extra 882sqm plot and made changes to the original design. The construction will take place on this larger plot in front of Awash International Bank's twin buildings on Ras Abebe Aregay Street, in the area designated as the rising financial district of the city.

The Chinese company was selected out of four that had responded to Nib's tender, announced on January 26, 2013. The agreement was signed by Kibru Fondja, Nib Bank's president, Hailemariam Assefa, chief executive officer of the NIC, and Zhao Sanbao, the Ethiopian branch assistant manager of the Chinese company.

Both parties declined to disclose the total estimated cost of the project, stating that it is too early to tell. Yet, the construction of the building will cost an estimated one billion Birr, according to Tagel Nigatu, a project engineer at the Bank.

The construction project, which will reportedly be completed within three to four years, is expected to accommodate customer facilities, such as a four-level underground car park.

The companies plan to construct additional buildings in Bole, in Addis Abeba, Hawassa in the Southern Regional, State and Dire Dawa, in the east of the country, according to an official at the Bank.

Established in May 2, 2002, by 818 shareholders, with a paid-up capital of 30 million Br, the NIC has now reached 100 million Br in capital. Its sister company, NIB, established in May 26, 1999, by 717 shareholders, with a paid-up capital of 27.6 million Br has now reached one billion Birr.

The bank has opened 70 branches across the country, whereas the insurance company has 22 branches nationwide.

Other tall buildings are planned in the emerging financial district of the city, including the 52-storey headquarters of the Commercial Bank of Ethiopia (CBE), and the 40-storey headquarters of the Ethiopian Insurance Corporation.

Construction will begin in two months.

Frozen Twin Buildings to Transform into Five Star Hyatt Hotel After $25m Purchase
Dubai based Albwardi Investments to take over project from previous owners Kharafi & Sons


The unfinished building facing the street was meant to be a three star Ibis hotel while the one in the background was intended to be a four star Novotel Hotel.

‹›
The Dubai-based holding company Albwardy Investments have finalised a 25 million dollar deal to purchase two hotels from M.A Kharafi & Sons Plc. The hotels are currently under construction at the junction of Africa Avenue and Jomo Kenyatta Street, at Meskel Square.

The deal was notarised at the Documents Registration & Authentication Office (DARO) on Wednesday, August 7, 2013.

M.A Kharafi & Sons Plc originally planned to build one three-star hotel, named Ibis, on the side of the Jomo Kenyata Street and another four-star, named Novotel, along Africa Avenue, both of them under the French company Accor Hotels.

Albwardy, however, intends to turn them into one five-star Hyatt Hotel – an American franchise with 492 locations worldwide, according to an official statement Fortune obtained via email from the company.

With the purchase it inherited a seven-storey building facing Jomo Kenyatta Street, which includes a basement meant to be a three-star Ibis Hotel and a six-storey building on Africa Avenue without a basement meant to be four-star Novetel Hotel.

“Albwardy intends to completely redesign the inside of the buildings,” a construction worker on the premises told Fortune.

What used to be two or three rooms will be merged into one larger room, and the fitness and swimming pool area will be overhauled, according to him. Moreover, a basement office will be added under the six-storey building facing Africa Avenue.

Albwardy has earmarked another 50 million dollars for redesigning the buildings, a company source Fortune interviewed revealed.


Kharafi was first approached for the on-going hotels by Albwardy over a year ago. Getting clearance from the Addis Abeba City Administration and the Ethiopian Revenues & Customs Authority (ERCA), however, took time, according to a management executive at Kharafi, who wanted to remain anonymous.

The Kuwait-based company, with several business interests in telecommunications, oil and construction, had already made a decision to give up its seven-year hotel project in Ethiopia, when Albwardy declared interest.

“Bureaucratic snags and a change in the company’s leadership were the causes,” the management staff revealed to Fortune.

The company is now run by the sons of Nasser Al-Kharafi, who passed away two years ago.

It was under the latter’s leadership that Kharafi brought its business to Ethiopia. It first made its mark under its subsidiary MAK Contracting by building the new Ethiopian Airlines Terminal building, from 1998 to 2003, for 81 million dollars. It decided to move into the hospitality industry in 2006, with French hotel management firm Accor Hotels. This was in a joint venture deal, where the latter owned 40pc.

Under the banner “Africa M. A. Kharafi & Sons Accor Plc”, the joint venture company acquired the 10,232sqm plot where construction of the two hotels began in January 2006. A part of this plot overlapped with a nearby hotel project by Sunshine Construction Plc; a case that took the Kirkos District some time to resolve. Getting the design approved took over a year. After construction started, Accor backed out of the deal, leaving the entire project under the sole ownership of Kharafi.

Although the hotels were initially intended to be completed after 38 months of construction, delay in the delivery of materials further extended the project, which still remained unfinished in 2011. Around 20 million dollars was spent on the hotel Fortune learnt. That same year, a change in management at Kharafi led to the decision to suspend the project. Kharafi has still kept several hotel and construction ventures in other African countries, namely South Africa and Gambia.

Ali Albwardy, owner of the investment firm, however, was willing to assume the risks of the project Kharafi has left behind. This is because he “has chosen Addis Abeba for investment due to Ethiopia’s fast growing emergence as a leading player within the region”, states the email comment Fortune received.

Established in 1976, Albwardy Investment has over 30 companies internationally, engaged in food distribution logistics, marine engineering, construction, commercial insurance, polo sports and the hospitality sector. Collaboratively, they have a billion dollar annual turnover. The company already owns a Hyatt Regency in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and 13 other hotels in Africa and around the world.

Ali Albwardy was advised locally by Zemedeneh Negatu, managing partner of Ethiopian Ernst & Young (E&Y) – a global consulting firm – when deciding to venture into Ethiopia. Zemedeneh was previously the advisor to Marriott and Sunshine Construction Plc, which had partnered to construct a courtyard hotel in front of Medhanyalem Church.

Aside from those under construction, there are currently only three international hotels operating in Ethiopia, namely – Sheraton Addis, Hilton and Radisson Blu.

AA-LRT project to be completed after two years

Addis Ababa, September 7, 2013 (WIC) - The Ethiopian Railways Corporation (ERC) said that the Addis Ababa Light Rail Transit (AA-LRT) project is being executed according to schedule despite the heavy rainy season.
According to Behailu Sintayehu, Project Manager, the project would be completed after two years.
The 34km double track electrified light rail transit project 43 percent of whose construction has already been done is expected to cross all 10 sub cities of Addis Ababa.
On completion, AA-LRT is expected to operate 18 hours a day using 41 light trains thereby transporting 60,000 commuters per hour.
Every locomotive would travel 70kms per hour pulling a three-room car with more than 300 seats. At all stations, a train is expected every three to six minutes.


http://www.diretube.com/cctv/ethiopi...ee2e90ca3.html

Ethiopia's first light railway to be completed by 2015. It's supposed to be at 40% right now.


It is interesting, that this light-rail vehicle constructed to Addis-Ababa:




has its sister - or rather to say ancestor - also in half-ready stage in Szeged, in Hungary:





This one was constructed as a reconstruction of Tatra B6A2 trams originally from Rostock, with an inserted low-floor middle part. It would have conventional Tatra (or rather to say PCC-licence) bogies with modern electronic traction equipment.

ADDIS ABABA | Bole Lemi Industrial Zone | Proposal


Ethiopia to Open First Industrial Zone to Bolster Economy

Ethiopia will spend 900 million birr ($49 million) to open its first industrial hub for export- oriented manufacturers in a bid to deliver faster economic growth, Industry Minister Mekonnen Manyazewal said.
South Korean garment-makers are among companies in talks with the government about establishing operations at the planned site in the capital, Addis Ababa, Mekonnen said in an interview in the city on March 15. The facility is scheduled to open before the fiscal year ends on July 7, he said.
“This is one of the key strategies to facilitate and support foreign and domestic private-sector partners and particularly to enhance exports,” Mekonnen said. “It’s key for our industrialization.”
The economy of Ethiopia expanded an annual average of 10.6 percent for the eight years through 2011, double the rate of all of Africa, according to the World Bank. The Horn of African economy runs on a mixture of state dominance of large industries such as banking, telecommunications and power with private investment in manufacturing and agriculture.
The project is known as the Bole Lemi Industrial Zone and covers 156 hectares (385 acres). It’s designed to help companies such as agro-processors, pharmaceutical-makers and textile manufacturers produce and sell value-added goods and boost revenue from exports. The government is building roads, electricity and telecommunications infrastructure at the site and it will offer tax incentives for industries based there.
Trade Zones
Ethiopia is ranked 127th out of 185 nations in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Index, behind African countries including Swaziland and Kenya. Companies are hindered by a lack of protection of investment and barriers to cross-border trading, according to the World Bank. The bank’s International Finance Corp. is contributing to a $10 million project to help Ethiopia ease investment rules for businesses.
Similar zones are being considered in at least five other locations including, Kombolcha, 158 miles northeast of Addis Ababa, and Dire Dawa, a self-administered city about 228 miles east of the capital, Mekonnen said.
The government is making a push to attract private investment with plans to convert its investment agency into a “one-stop service” for new companies to register, Mekonnen said. It is also introducing measures to speed the clearance of exports and imports at the border, he said.
Tax Breaks
The government passed a law last year offering income tax breaks of as long as six years for manufacturers of items including leather products, sugar and textiles. Producers who send 60 percent or more of their goods abroad will receive an additional two-year income-tax exemption, Mekonnen said.
Tax incentives on imported capital goods are reserved for existing investors and companies planning to expand their operations by more than 50 percent, according to the law.
“If there’s no expansion you are not creating new capacity,” Mekonnen said. “The reason we give incentives is to encourage re-investment.”
Huajian Group, a Chinese shoemaker, said last year it plans to invest $2 billion over a decade building a new manufacturing zone on the outskirts of Addis Ababa.

Ethiopia's ICT Village to Host 15 Companies
Written by Meraf Leykun Monday, 25 March 2013

Ethiopia's first ICT industry zone, located in the Bole Lemi area, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia now under construction has attracted the interests of 15 companies with Tecno mobile, a Chinese company submitting designs of future plants to the the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MoCIT). Samsung, MTN, Tecno Mobile, ZTE, Huawei, and others are their interests.

The construction of the ICT village, according to Peter Gatcot, minister of state in the MoCIT, is expected to be finalized this year. He told The Reporter that the construction was sluggish, forcing the ministry to spend much higher than the estimated initial budget. The ICT Village was set to cost some 1.2 billion birr when it was initiated three years ago.

Ethio-ICT Village is being constructed on a sprawling 200 hectares lot, with around 130 hectares dedicated to private companies’ investments. The remaining 70 hectares MoCIT will be devoted to buildings and infrastructures, with small and medium-sized businesses getting into the vicinity. According to MoCIT, when the Village is completed, it will create 300 thousand job opportunities.

Peter also told The Reporter that, Ethiopia’s digital TV implementation process is to commence by the end of the year. He said that the documentation process is already set and the implementation will begin soon to change the analogue TV installations of Ethiopia into digital system.

Sport Academy | U/C


The construction of the first ever all round Sport Academy complex in Ethiopia is set to be completed by December 2011. The complex, which is being constructed by Sur Construction Share Company, lies on 232,438 square metres (23.2 hectares) and is expected to cost 182 million birr on completion. The initial date of completion was set back by two years due to road building works in the area.

‘We had planned to finish the construction of the sports academy in 2009 but were delayed because a road project in the area overlapped with the sport academy construction and there had to be a revision of the original plan,’ Tadesse Yemane General Manager of Sur construction Share Company stated.

The all round sport academy complex will have 18 learning rooms, which will include six laboratories, four computer rooms, 8 classrooms and one lecture hall.

AAWSA Sibilu and Gerbi Dams | 8Billion birr |under study and construction to begin
The project components include two earthfill dams (one on Gerbi River and the other on Sibilu River), transmission mains, a tunnel under Entoto Hills, and a new treatment plant, all at the headworks site, as well as a comprehensive transfer and distribution network covering 30 pressure zones, with storage reservoirs ranging in capacity from 2,500 to 20,000 cu.m. From the receiving reservoir controlling the entire town area (differences in levels of up to 700 m) a transfer network conveys the water to 42 reservoirs supplying the various areas of the town.

The Addis Ababa City Administrations has finally decided to go ahead with a decade-old project to construct two new water dams on the outskirts of the city to satisfy the increasing water demand of the city’s residents at an estimated cost of some 8 billion birr. The Sibilu and Gerbi Dams, which are to be located some 30km north of Addis, have been in the works for close to ten years due to shortage of finance. However, the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development (MoFED) has finally succeeded in securing the fund from World Bank recently. According to Asegid Getachew, the General Manager of the Addis Ababa Water and Sewerage Authority (AAWSA), the two dams will be constructed on Sibilu and Gerbi rivers, which are tributaries of the Abay, located beyond Mount Entoto on the north-western boundary of the city.

Planned to incorporate water treatment plants and reservoirs which have the capacity to supply 688,500 cubic meter water per day, the water dam projects are expected to increase the city’s water supply substantially.

Just three years ago the city’s water supply-demand gap was hovering around the 40 to 50 percent mark prompting Mayor Kuma Demeksa’s administration to dig more water wells in the nearby towns in the Oromia region. Presently the city’s water supply coverage has reached some 70 percent and according to the city administration the coverage is expected to reach 100 percent within two years. The water well digging was funded by a soft loan obtained from China.

The water from the new reservoirs and treatment plants is planned to enter the city via a tunnel which passes through Mount Entoto, which is expected to be one of the factors increasing the cost.

Some 100 million birr is expected to be paid to be paid as compensation to farmers relocated from the rivers’ basin.

Currently the city sustains its self on the three water reservoirs - the Legadadi and Dire Dams, Gefersa Dam and the Akaki Wells - located in surrounding towns and on the peripheries of the city.

AAWSA to Select Design for Gerbi Water Project




The two rivers, Gerbi and Sibilu, which are the tributaries of Abay throughMugerRiverwill be used as a source of water for capital in the coming five years.

Addis Abeba City Water & Sewerage Authority (AAWSA) will choose a design for the Gerbi water project this week, located 30Km north of Addis Abeba.

GerbiRiver, located beyondMountEntoto, is a tributary of theAbayRiver. The project was studied 20 years ago, says Etsegenet Tesfaye, head of communications at AAWSA, although it was not realised due to financial problems.


AAWSA’s board, which includes Mayor Kuma Demeksa, is now considering three alternative designs, all made by Wapacon Consulting, an Indian firm.

All designs include a dam. One of the designs includes a water purifying facility at the project site. The second design shows that water has to be transported to Gefersa Dam through a tunnel, whilst the third option has a water purifying facility around Dil Ber in Gulele District located south of the Entoto Mountains.

The project will cost 47 million to 77 million dollars, all of which will be covered by the City Administration, according to Etsegenet.

“When this project is completed, it will help distribute water easily to the areas around Entoto, where it is currently a challenge to pump water,” she said.

Construction will start at the end of this fiscal year, with planned completion in five years, she added. The dam will provide 100,000 cubic metres of water a day.

Currently the city gets 374,000 cubic metres of water a day from different sources, allowing 97pc of the City access to the water.

AAWSA is planning to have more water sources in the coming 10 years to produce a total of about 813,500 cubic metres a day.
