Dhaka : The pilling and construction work of the Bangabandhu Tri-Tower is progressing at great speed at the Central Business District (CBD) in the capital's Purbachal area. As part of regular follow-ups, Rick Haque Sikder, Chairman of Power Pac Holdings Ltd along with local and foreign experts visited the project site on September 10.
The Bangabandhu Tri-Tower will have a 473-metre tall 111-storeied iconic Legacy Tower, wherein the 96th floor will be dedicated to the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina symbolising her legacy. There will also be a museum, 71-storeyed Liberty Tower, which will represent the Liberation War of 1971 and the 52-storeied Language Tower will represent the Language Movement under the leadership of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman in 1952. The name Bangabandhu Tri-Tower is named following these three towers.
PowerPac Holdings Ltd and Japanese firm Kajima Corporation are jointly conducting the construction job of the master project. Modern solar glass will be installed outside the environment-friendly buildings. An automatic waste-management system will be put in place in the CBD to maintain the urban hygiene and upkeep of the cityscape.
In order to protect the public utility facilities, such as the water supply, sewage system, electrical lines, and communication systems, an underground common duct system will be implemented. The boundary walls of Green Buildings will consist of walkways following the style of the Great Wall of China. Eco-friendly electric buses and underground walkway that will circulate the entire CBD will be available at the Bangabandhu Tri-Tower area.
