The ADNOC Tower is a 74 storey building offering nearly 137,000 sqm office space. Reaching a height of 335 m, ADNOC Tower is Abu Dhabi’s second-largest highrise building. It is comprised of a frame, which blocks eastern and western solar radiation. The north facade is fully glazed while a large part of the south facade consists of PV glazing. The new headquarter was built using both active and passive design strategies. ADNOC has targeted a LEED Gold Certification.
