Samba Bank HQ Tower rises as landmark in newest King Abdullah Financial District (Riyadh). Despite not being the highest building, it is clearly distinguished due to its challenging shape. Furthermore, machines are running on inclined tracks.
The façade access strategy is based on two single jib BMUs (17 meters outreach) with articulated segments capable of entering into the top recessed area. Additionally, a gantry with a hanging cradle was supplied to serve the building core patio.
