The Nairobi Business Park
The Jockey Club of Kenya, owners of the 400 acre land along Ngong road decided to diversify their land use by restructuring their land portfolio and as a result the office block was developed. Offices were designed around a standard modular unit of a core and the two wings. The standard core element comprises of WC’s, reception area and circulation. The two wings vary in size from a minimum of 400 sqm to 600 sqm per floor and the design permits flexible usage of this space. A key element of the project was an effective site IT system using fibre optic cables between the offices and linking through on site exchange to ground and satellite delivery portals. The project was completed in 2003.
