Project Description

The National Bank of Dubai headquarters building was one of the first iconic buildings built in Dubai. The form of the building is inspired by the dhows that traditionally plied the Creek. The tower is supported at the sides by two massive concrete columns, and faced with glass curtain walls; on the Creek side this curtain wall curves gracefully from top to bottom, like a billowing sail.


CML were initially appointed by Al Naboodah Laing O’Rouke then later by Norr as commissioning managers.
