Project Title

The court complex is located in Al Farwaniya, a suburb of Kuwait City in Kuwait. This complex consists of a main court building and a car park building, with a total area of nearly two hundred thousand square meters.

The main building, with its key design feature of a 20-metre-wide sloping glass wall rising above the main entrance to a height of 70 metres, is executed in EFP 50 Semi Unitised Curtain Wall System Blast Resistant. The system is rigorously tested, with over 40 different blast and loading tests carried out during development to ensure it would deliver the required resilience. This in close corporation with the glass supplier.

Shorter lead times, helping contractors and architects meeting the increasing demand for shorter programme times was the main reason to choose EFP 65 Unitised Curtain Walling. Systems for the car park building.
