Development projects in the West African Union

In 2014 HERMES-SOJITZ launched its investment and development program for the countries of the West African Union and Russia.

The program provides for the construction of the following facilities in West Africa which are unique for the region:

  • The first 65-storey skyscraper
  • A 25-storey luxury housing estate
  • The Mall with more than 100,000 sqm of shop space

The newest construction technologies allow for comfortable and safe operation of residential and commercial real estate property.So far, the following has been carried out as part of the development program: hydrogeologic investigations, site seismic and wind load studies, assessments of different building exposures, selection of construction materials.The project implementation involves the use of the most recent architectural and engineering solutions in line with the latest construction and design achievements. Hermes-Sojitz projects meet all technology-specific rules in terms of security and comfort.

Hermes-Sojitz implemented more than 10 projects for the construction of high-rise buildings in Asia.

Skyscraper

A multi-functional building with residential and non-residential, commercial and cultural premises. Standing approximately 270 m high, the building has three underground floors. The building houses offices, apartments, shopping areas, and restaurants. The underground area includes a parking lot, utility rooms, and commercial premises.
For the most part, engineering efforts in the project implementation aim to ensure the structural stability of the skyscraper. The design of the skyscraper provides for the resistance to horizontal and vertical loads with a multiple safety margin. The central load-bearing element of the building (concrete core or “core”) has vertical communications. In case of strong gusts of wind or earthquakes reinforced concrete braces connecting the core and outer columns reduce horizontal vibrations.
The construction project provides for the reduction of impact on the high-rise building by pulsation wind loads. Wind tunnel effect is minimized by locking entrances and ladder sections with high integrity sealing of intermediate floors. The building structure is equipped with compensating devices providing a margin of safety and rigidity. The used construction material reduces the horizontal wind load and bending moment up to 64%.
Start of construction: 2015
Height: 270 meters
Number of storeys: 65

Luxury housing estate

The housing estate consists of one 25-storey building and is located in the elite part of the city. It has a fenced protected area, underground parking and a unified operational service.
Start of construction: 2015
Height: 90 meters
Number of storeys: 25

The Mall

West Africa Shopping Mall Project. The mall is located on the outskirts of the city on a site complying with modern global commercial space construction and development technologies. Two floors of the mall accommodate European retailers.
Start of construction: 2015
Total area: more than 100,000 sqm

Construction technologies

The project implementation involves the use of the most recent architectural and engineering solutions in line with the latest construction and design achievements. Hermes-Sojitz projects meet all technology-specific rules in terms of security and comfort. In order to optimize investments most effectively, the fund uses energy-saving technologies and equipment.
Thus, we have applied the ventilated facade and panoramic window systems which reduce the costs of maintaining a comfortable indoor climate preventing overheating and heat loss in the specific conditions of the African countries.
The interior decoration is made of high-quality natural materials that help to maintain air exchange and moisture distribution. The buildings are equipped with modern Japanese climate ventilation and air-conditioning systems.
The security is provided for by an automated system that includes video surveillance, fire prevention and smoke ventilation.

Investment Fund Hermes-Sojitz also implements projects in the field of construction of hotel and residential real estate property in Russia.
