Most of the surrounding Astana towers look so cheesy and kitschy. Jeesh.

The Abu Dhabi Plaza isn't conventional either, but hopefully it'll ignite a spark for more serious and quality designs in the city.

Hello to all

Hello!
I have just received a job offer regarding this project for Mechanical Engineer position and i would like to brief information about the building, company and city please. Right now i am living in Moscow and working here in a 37-Floor complex building ( a small version of Abu Dhabi Plaza ) and i am not sure exactly if it is worth to start working there or not.
Any information will be appreciated, thank you in advance!

Hello!
What I can say regarding the project is that it's tempo will only increase because this building has to be finished till summer 2017. Too much money is already invested into the project and city's skyline depends on it heavily, so, I would say this project won't be stopped regardless to any problems.
As I know, the general contractor is Arabtec and that's why there are lots of foreigners are involved in it.

Regarding the city and country:
-Astana is quickly growing city;
-Booming construction everywhere + some very good projects/buildings that will be interesting for you as an engineer I bet;
-Harsh climate; very cold in winter (till -45 C), hot and short summer (up to +40C) + very windy;
-Hospitable people, rich culture;
-Very big difference in people's income (very rich peolpe and average people, middle class is small);
-Lots of foreigners in the city;
-Entertainment (bars, clubs, etc) and food are generally expensive. Poor service.
-Average salary in Astana is about 1000 USD;

The list can be very long. If you have any specific questions you are wellcome to ask.
