Project Summery
One of Kooheji Contractors most prestigious achievements to date is the fabrication and installation of Bahrain World Trade Centre spires, in itself a massive precision engineering project. At an overall height of 57 meters and erected at a level of 183 meters, the spires that adorn the Bahrain World Trade Centre were a ground breaking first for the Construction industry in Bahrain. Precision was the key as these 150 ton structures were assembled in 5 tiers to reach an overall building height of 250 meters the first time in the Kingdom.

About Bahrain World Trade Centre
There are no such similar Buildings in the world. The Bahrain World Trade Center (also called Bahrain WTC or BWTC) is a 240-metre-high (787 ft), 50-floor, twin tower complex located in Manama, Bahrain. The towers were built in 2008 by the multi-national architectural firm Atkins. It is the first skyscraper in the world to integrate wind turbines into its design. The wind turbines were developed, built and installed by Danish company Norwin A/S. The structure is constructed close to the King Faisal Highway, near popular landmarks such as the towers of Bahrain Financial Harbour (BFH), NBB and Abraj Al Lulu.
