ICD Brookfield Place is one of BSBG's projects.

The core of ICD Brookfield Place – one of the most high-profile construction projects in the UAE – has topped out, and over the next few weeks, a few remaining steel elements are to be installed for the glass office tower located in Dubai International Financial Centre, architecture giant Brewer Smith Brewer Group (BSBG) revealed as part of its Q2 2019 construction update.

ICD Brookfield Place’s construction team includes Foster + Partners as designer, and Multiplex and Ssangyong Engineering and Construction as contractors.  

BSBG is working as lead consultant, executive architect, executive interior designer, and construction supervisor for the project.

The G+53 ICD Brookfield Place’s steel structure will “also reach the same stage in due course”, BSBG said, adding that the final steel component would be installed as part of a “presentation ceremony to commemorate this important milestone”.

Cladding on the main structure will be completed over the next three months and “crown off the building”, for which the majority of glazed wrapping work is complete.

“Primary steel for the double height north podium, which is scheduled to be the home [of] a number of exclusive restaurants, bars, and retail outlets, is also closing in on completion,” BSBG said.

According to a project listing on BSBG’s website, ICD Brookfield Place, designed to Leed Gold standards, comprises 8.36ha of office space, seven basement levels for 2,700 vehicles, and an adjacent five-storey 1.4ha retail centre.

In November 2017, Construction Week visited ICD Brookfield Place’s site to explore how the world’s largest luffing jib tower crane at the time – the Favelle Faco M2480D – was being deployed to build the tower.

At the time, officials from Multiplex told Construction Week that project management, and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering for ICD Brookfield Place was being delivered by Aecom.

Robert Bird Group, Priedemann, Coffey, and AESG were respectively said to be on-board as structural engineer, façade consultant, geotechnical engineer, and Leed consultant.
