National Bank of Kuwait – New Headquarter

National Bank of Kuwait – New Headquarter

The new headquarters building of the National Bank of Kuwait is a 300m-tall tower that covers a total floor area of 127,000m2 with a design concept inspired by pearl shells and located in the heart of Kuwait City’s financial district.

The main construction comprises composite concrete and steel, while the cladding on the fins and glass façades is predominantly glass-reinforced concrete.

Dextra took part in reinforcing the concrete structure of the building by providing these solutions:

  • 100,000 Bartec couplers were installed for columns reinforcement, construction joints in raft and slab/beam to core wall connections.
  • 35,000 headed bars act as shear studs in raft.
  • 1,500 Unitec bolted couplers were used to extend existing reinforcing bars that were either not threaded or too short for lapping. It is a convenient solution to connect rebars by using a simple pneumatic wrench at the construction site, without the need of any rebar preparation.
