LOM-designed HSBC headquarters in Dubai to open next month
HSBC has confirmed that its million-dollar headquarters building, designed by LOM Architecture and Design who worked with Broadway Malyan on this project, will open next month in Dubai.
“We are looking forward to welcoming HSBC colleagues into our new building from July through to August, as planned,” a representative from the bank told Construction Week.
London-headquartered HSBC, which claims to be one of the biggest banks in the world, announced plans to build its new office in Dubai in January 2016.
German Formwork Technology (GFT) says it has worked on the project, and pictures on its website appear to show various images of wall formwork for HSBC‘s new building, which was under construction at the time.
HSBC has not revealed details of which company constructed the tower, but GFT lists Multiplex as the project’s contractor.
The HSBC Tower Dubai website also names the Australian-headquartered builder – formerly called Brookfield Multiplex– as the project’s “general contractor”, with Broadway Malyan named executive architect.
According to a Bloomberg report cited by Arabian Business in 2016, the 20-storey tower was to be built by Abu Dhabi developer, Gulf Resources Development and Investment, who would then sell it to HSBC Bank Middle East Limited.
