Project Description

The building is the Headquarters of Bank of Africa (BOA). The seven-storey building has two basements that will be used mostly for parking, UPS and other ancillary items. A lower ground floor will be utilized for bulk storage while the ground floor will be used for banking and also accommodate some offices. Other offices will occupy all the upper floors (1st to 7th). The 7th floor will house executive offices. The bank will lease out 4th and 5th floors to interested tenants.

Inside, the building will feature acoustic ceilings with LED panel lights. Glazed partitions will be employed to enable transparency as well as allow natural light to flow into the rooms. Tile and Carpet Centre, a major supplier to the interior industry in Kenya, supplied carpet tile floors from INTERFACE.

The architect has incorporated some unique elements to make the building and its working spaces conducive to operations. He has adopted open spaces that are flexible to anticipate and can easily support the changing nature of work. Teaming and informal interactions spaces have been facilitated by interaction pods and focus rooms.
