Upcoming KCB Bank Plaza has been recognised as the leading commercial building in Kenya and the region by a panel of experts.

The panel consists of pioneers in the architectural field included Shamla Fernandez from Kenya, Janfrans van der Erden from the Netherlands and Dr. Allan Kenneth Birabi from Uganda. Announced earlier this year, the Plaza is celebrated by the association for its sustainability efforts.

The structure contains a natural ventilation system that maintains a zero dependency on automated systems for cooling support; instead, the structure is supported by the sky courts and atrium design.

The striking design of the aluminum shading fins provides a natural mechanism to reduce indoor temperatures.

Innovative accents are pronounced throughout the Plaza including an apparatus that can harvest rainwater and treat it.

The Plaza preserves the theme of modern design using solar power beams to reduce electricity costs.

Construction began in December 2010 and concluded in 2015. Located in the fast-developing financial district in Upperhill, the Plaza is in the company of Britam Insurance, UAP Insurance, the World Bank and Nairobi Hospital.

The unique capabilities of the Plaza to express pioneering design while using environmentally-friendly techniques makes it a real standout in the Kenyan market.
