Dubai-based retail giant Landmark Group is set to move into its new Dubai Marina headquarters at the end of November 2015, group CEO Vipen Sethi has told Construction Week.

The office building overlooking Sheikh Zayed Road is on a 1.2mn m2 site which will have 453,000m2 of office space.

"There will be 10 floors for parking and 19 office floors, to house all of Landmark Group’s retail corporate employees. The building will also have 12 high-speed elevators to cater to the needs of the Group’s 4000 corporate office staff," Sethi said.

At the top (20th) floor of the building, there is an elevated glass boardroom that will be visible from Sheikh Zayed Road. The glass can also be made opaque at the flick of a switch.

Main contractor Shapoorji Pallonji International began its work on the project in May last year and had to work in tough conditions to complete four levels of basement and the building slab by November 2013. Since then, the building's structure has completed, with glazing and MEP works now underway.

The company is currently working to finish the building's shell and core by March 2015, ahead of internal decorating contractors being appointed to finish works by the end of November.

Landmark Group's headquarters has been based alongside its warehousing at a site in Jebel Ali Industrial Area 1 since 2006.

"Since then we have grown exponentially, launching several new concepts in the retail and hospitality sector, whilst expanding on our current brand profile. This growth has made it important for us to look for a new corporate headquarters," he said.

"We considered several locations within Dubai, but after careful evaluation TECOM proved to be the best fit."

The company is targeting a LEED Silver rating for its new headquarters.

A site visit to Landmark Group's new HQ appears in issue 543 of Construction Week.
