New Administrative Capital’s Iconic Tower Receives Top Chinese Award

The Iconic Tower, situated in the New Administrative Capital’s Central Business District, has become the recipient of the gold award of the China Construction Metal Structure Association for the engineering quality of the structure’s steel works. The award, given under the auspices of China’s Ministry of Housing, is China’s highest honour in the building industry.

Considered the tallest building in Africa at a height of 400 metres, the Iconic Tower was constructed by the China State Construction Engineering Corporation.

Work on the Tower began in May 2018, and by February 2021, 60 of the building’s 78 floors had been completed, setting a new record for the fastest construction speed.
