Arabian Construction Company (ACC) has successfully secured the contract to execute “Cité Administrative” project in Calavi, Benin.

 

The project spans across a vast, 40-hectare site, featuring a total built-up area of approximately 94,000m2.  The scope of work encompasses construction of 16 administrative buildings, each consisting of a ground floor and three additional floors.  Additionally, the project includes other essential amenities such as a restaurant, conference center, medical center, three maquis (food courts), as well as auxiliary buildings comprising of three electrical transformers and generator rooms and a guard house.  Notably, the contract scope also covers external road works (hardscape), landscaping and water features to enhance the overall appeal of the site.

 

The project features an impressive architectural design with the 16 buildings symmetrically arranged on both sides of a tree-lined pedestrian axis.  To ensure a pleasant transition between the buildings, a meandering concrete ribbon gracefully traverses the site, reminiscent of a nearby river.  This feature provides a shaded and cool pathway connecting each building.  The buildings themselves are organized into eight offset bands, featuring a minimalist and elegant aesthetics. Perimeter walkways equipped with vertical concrete slats act as sunshades, offering protection and a unique architectural touch.  All buildings are oriented north-south, with thoughtfully distributed parking spaces to the east and west of each structure.

 

As we embark on this significant, landmark project, we look forward to leveraging our expertise and experience to deliver a remarkable project that not only meets the client’s expectations but also contributes to the development of Calavi, Benin.
