Trump Tower, Baku

Client: Mixity Architects
Project Value: Confidential
Location: Baku, Azerbaijan

Located in the heart of Baku and standing 40 storeys tall, this eye-catching tower commands impressive views across the cityscape and is itself a visible landmark for miles around. It is Architecturally and Structurally unique in the region, largely considered the result of inefficient design brought about by a late change in use that resulted in the conversion of the residential tower to a 5* hotel, based on the specifications of the Trump brand. The project also comprised the development of a new independent Conference Center. Design Management Services were provided as part of the overall Mixity integrated design services alongside MACE as Project Managers.

Design Management for this project was a challenging role and required excellent scheduling, complex co-ordination and strong leadership skills to successfully deliver the scheme to very tight deadlines in time for the opening of the European Athletics Championships held in June 2015.
