DeSimone’s Abu Dhabi project, Al Hilal Bank Tower now has approximately 80% of the curtain wall installed and is scheduled to be completed later this year.
Al Hilal Bank Tower, located on Al Maryah Island, consists of a 24-story tower with six podium levels and six levels of sub-terrain parking. Al Hilal Bank Tower is the first private development on Al Maryah Island and is one of the deepest excavated sites in Abu Dhabi. The tower’s design provides column-free interiors and generous cantilever spans, made possible by post-tensioned concrete. DeSimone is providing structural, geotechnical, civil, blast, and wind engineering services.
