The new 240m tall, 41 story Central Bank of Kuwait Headquarters has been recently completed and marks a new landmark on the Kuwait City Skyline. Designed by HOK architects this triangular truncated pyramid tower has 9 15 metre tall stainless steel flagpoles gracing it's entrance, designed and supplied by Harrisons.
To deliver a series of imposing flagpoles to compliment the impressive facade of the building. The flagpoles were required to be stainless steel with a reflective finish, durable, maintenance free but also easily transportable to site. A requirement for lightning protection and a specially designed base arrangement were also part of the brief.
Harrison's offered two solutions in Stainless steel, the client selecting a 304 Grade stainless pole to a highly polished mirror finish. The truck was manufactured from cast aluminium, the ball top finished to the same specification as the mast and the internal winch to raise and lower the flag operated with a handle and stainless wire mechanism for easy of maintenance. The Client was invited to send in their own quality auditors to inspect and sign off the flagpoles prior to despatch from our UK facility.
