We were the contractor for this design and build project, situated along Archabil Avenue, Ashagabat, Turkmenistan. We were appointed as architect for this project in June 2009, with the completion date set for August 2010. The building is 14-storey in height and houses two ministries, the Ministry of Construction and the Ministry of Construction Materials, with a 2-storey podium with staff restaurant and a 350 person conference room completing the project. The tower is being constructed using reinforced, in-situ concrete and comprises a 2-storey entrance hall.
The podium is to be constructed using a combination of in-situ concrete and structural steel trusses over the Conference Room. The area is a highly sensitive seismic zone, with the entire city destroyed in 1948.
