Hi, I did post it ages ago (way before you registered as a user), I'll try and dig up the thread, it's the new Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) premises.
Chamber building contract award soon
Posted: Friday, May 06, 2005


The main contractor for the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) headquarters is to be appointed within a week, it was revealed yesterday.

The piling work for the BD8.5 million complex in Sanabis is nearing completion, said BCCI president Khalid Kanoo.

He was speaking after officially signing the BD160,000 piling contract with international geotechnical contractors, Keller Grundbau.

The signing ceremony at the BCCI premises in Manama was attended by BCCI board members, design consultant and supervisor Aref Sadeq and project co-ordinator and client representative Dheya Towfiqi.

"We are negotiating for the main contract, which we hope to finalise within a week," said Kanoo. "The new headquarters is expected to be completed by late next year."

The main piling work, involving 452 piles, has already been completed in 54 days, said Keller branch manager Imtiaz Syed.

"As soon as the main contractor is appointed, we shall start trimming the piles and this work will be completed within a month," he added.

The foundation stone for the new headquarters was laid in January this year by Prime Minister Shaikh Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, in the presence of Crown Prince and BDF Commander-in-Chief Shaikh Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa.

The 20-storey building will include a reception, a library and business centre, majlis, an exhibition hall, a main hall, administrative offices, lecture halls, a training centre, a cafeteria, a health club for businessmen and 14 floors to be rented as office space.

Preliminary work on the building began late last year, with the government providing BD5 million.

Kanoo said the new headquarters would help the 65-year old chamber to better serve Bahrain's business community.
See less See more
what an ugly building it is, looks like a shrinked Jumierah Beach Hotel
also looks a bit like the le meridien al aqua in fujairah

the render is crappy
it will turn out to be nicer when it has been completed i'd say

btw - the text says it is in sanabis. is this part of manama?
Yes it is, only a highway separates Seef District and Sanabis.

It is also adjacent to Bahrain International Exhibition Centre
The building will be ok, the render as DL said is crap. Good to see work commencing.
Qatar4ever, you already know the answer, here in the old thread:

Guys, can we avoid double threads, cause there are a few. If you don't see a thread, dig it up, go and search for all threads from the beginning, if it's not there, then post a new one :).
Cool, hehe so that we can control the place :).
For a moment, I thought this was a new tower to be developed, then when I opened it, I was like, oh ok we need to wait for a bit for a newer one hehe.
