JKIA Sh56bn terminal back on the radar
http://www.businessdailyafrica.com/Corporate-News/JKIA-Sh56bn-terminal-back-on-the-radar-/-/539550/1620374/-/pn5i2oz/-/index.html

Construction of the controversial $653 million (Sh56 billion) Greenfields terminal could start next year with the Kenya Airports Authority expecting to close the financing deals by Christmas.

Work at the terminal whose tendering was at the centre of a row between various government agencies in September is now expected to take off in November 2013.

The terminal is expected to give the airport an extra handling capacity of 20 million passengers annually.

Britam launches plan for 30-storey office building
Business Daily
Quote:
British American Insurance Company is planning to spend Sh4.2 billion on a new 30-storey office tower and car park facility in Upper Hill.

The area which has attracted dozens of multi-national companies and blue chip financial service firms seeking expansion space away from Nairobi’s city centre.

The insurance firm, which is a subsidiary of the listed financial services group, Britam, has filed applications for regulatory approval to put up the new office building.

According to the documents seen by Business Daily, the project will see the creation of 330,000 square feet of office and commercial space for rental purposes and about 970 parking bays, making it one of the largest office blocks in the area.

The airport is much needed due to Nairobi positioning itself as a tourism and business hub. Good design was a pivotal requirement!
