Situated just outside the City Centre, the Nairobi National Museum is an imposing building amid lush leafy grounds. Triad Architects were appointed under a European Union funded program to prepare a detailed Master Plan for the development of the third phase of the Nairobi Museum. The project involved rehabilitation of the existing Museum, conversion of the redundant spaces to galleries, design of a new entrance, new administration block and new commercial centre, with additional landscaping features. This expansion and improvement program was intended give Nairobi Museum a major facelift and transformation into a world-class tourist destination. This was the first major renovation since 1930. The project was completed in 2007.

Following an architectural design competition late in 2007, GAPPS Architects & Urban Designers of South Africa in association with Triad Architects were appointed the Project Architects for the Coca Cola East & Central Africa office headquarters in the Upper hill area of Nairobi. The building concept was derived from the Coca-Cola brand ribbon and boasts of many features that make it truly unique, refreshing and inspiring, including; solar heating, rain water harvesting, power conservation devices and a green roof garden that acts as a recreation area as well as ensuring that there is minimal heat gain in a large portion of the building through the roof top. The building has state-of-the-art IT, audio visual and security systems that together with all the other building systems are managed through a building management system (BMS). Apart from offices, the building has a large auditorium that seats 200 people, a gymnasium, staff canteen and extensive external terraces. The building from which the company’s operations in 27 African countries are headed took a construction period of 13 months and was completed in 2008.
