Kampala Tower
Capita Symonds has unveiled plans for a new development in the Ugandan capital Kampala.
The company has designed the proposed ‘Kampala Tower’, a 222m high commercial building with public square which will be a new landmark for the city. Comprising 60 storeys, it will be the tallest tower in Africa and will house over 100,000 sq m of office and retail space for up to 12,500 people. A public plaza at the entrance will create a new centre for events against the back drop of the tower and surrounding hills.

Maldives Resort Design
The layout of facilities was chosen carefully with help of the local environmental experts – depending on position of reef, sea erosion, wind, existing vegetation and highs-the Maldivian urbanistic law has a very interesting high restriction-no building must be higher than the tallest tree on the island. The aim was not to damage any existing qualities and give the new infrastructure best possible climate and sun exposition. Main construction materials were local, wood, bamboo, straw and soil, construction method used prefabricated elements that would be built on land and brought to the island.
