Imara (Wynford Drive) Limited, acting on behalf of the Aga Khan Development Network, appointed Carillion for pre-construction planning services and construction.
The development incorporates a unique combination of contemporary design features and interpretive elements from traditional Islamic architecture. The level of quality, workmanship and materials demanded is extremely high.
The two facilities each total almost 100,000 square feet constructed in reinforced concrete, structural steel, structural glazing, large skylights, stone flooring and cladding timber framing. The projects were designed by two prominent architects from around the world – Japan’s Fumihiko Maki for the museum and India’s Charles Correa for the Ismaili Centre. The project also includes 210,000 square feet of underground parking in a two-level underground parking structure, and stunning landscaping features.
