AHMADIAH is currently putting the finishing touches to the KD51-million ($183.95 million), 256-m-high United Tower project in Kuwait.

Work on the 60-storey mixed-use office and residential project started in September 2007 and is expected to be completed by December (this month). Located in the heart of the financial centre of Kuwait in the Sharq district, the tower features a unique design, style and dynamic dimensions that are expected to make it an inspiring haven for work, relaxation and entertainment.

Being developed by United Real Estate Company, the tower has been designed by Dar SSH International Engineering Consultants, with KEO International Consultants as the construction manager. It has a total built-up area of 96,000 sq m.

Ahmadiah’s scope of work on the United Tower included installation of 190 piles of 1,200 mm diameter each driven to a depth of 30 m. It also includes civil works for three basements, a ground floor, 59 floors above, and a helipad; electro-mechanical work; architectural and landscape works; car-park cladding and roofing, and the conveying system. Furthermore, Ahmadiah has installed a range of systems for the project including the exterior cladding and facade maintenance system, building maintenance unit, monorail, spider cleaning machine; as well as smart building and ICT works.

The tower will have a five-storey podium containing a retail mall.
