The Central Bank of Kuwait is a large-scale project that is currently the new headquarters of the Central Bank of Kuwait. This is a 240 meter high building, with a triangular shaped tower, glass pyramid and Portuguese limestone Moca Creme coverings the vast majority of its cladding.
This is a major project in Kuwait, priced at over USD 400 million. The main contractor is China State Construction Engineering Corporation in partnership with several sub-contractors. The building area will include 75,000m² of office space and a 65,000m² multi-level car parking facility, and once it is finished it will certainly become a landmark in Kuwait.
The Central Bank of Kuwait building is perhaps one of the largest projects worldwide in terms of supply of Portuguese limestone. This project involves the supply of dozens of thousands of m2 of 40mm panels of Moca Creme limestone for most of its cladding surface. This project was not supplied directly by a Portuguese company, but Portuguese quarries supplied blocks for an intermediate company that latter did final supply for this project. Nonetheless, this is an amazing example of a beautiful and impressive project using a well-known Portuguese limestone: the Moca Creme limestone.
