Chevron Cabinda Gulf Oil Headquarters
YGH designed this 213,000 SF, seven-story headquarters building in a waterfront development district of Luanda, Angola. The narrow shape of the site resulted in an elongated building floor plate which follows the curve of the site. To assure a secure working environment the building is designed with a blast resistant window wall system and a progressive collapse structural frame. Integrated with the window wall are highly efficient aluminum sun screens shielding offices and open work stations from the low morning and afternoon sun exposure.
The building accommodates 750 work stations, IT and information centers, mail room, a multi-purpose town hall, conference and board room, training and various support facilities. The project has full power generator back-up support and was completed in association with DAR al-Handasah Engineers.
