Off-Site ProgramsA: Constructing a Carved and Cantilevered Office Tower

23 October 2018
8:30 AM – 5:30 PM

The dramatically cantilevered top section of the Mashreq Bank Headquarters is turning heads of all who travel near the Dubai Mall, even before the completion of construction. This section will contain the boardroom and ancillary meeting spaces of the bank, but the carved volume of the overall tower also assures that office units on either side of the tower will enjoy natural sunlight and protection from solar gain. On the 9th floor, atop the podium, a landscaped palm garden beckons to occupants of the common building cafeteria, more than 25 stories below the projecting boardroom. Hear from the team executing this extraordinary design, and view the structural acrobatics up close.
