Nestlé Waters Headquarters
Beirut, Lebanon

The complex houses the local corporate headquarters as well as the main storage warehouse and distribution centre for bottled water products. The two upper floors contain offices; the ground floor contains the warehouse and distribution facilities, carefully planned for ease-of-access by lorries, and employee parking is provided in the basement. The structure is reinforced concrete; post-tensioned concrete slabs span distances from five to 24 metres. Seven steel columns rise at an incline to a height of 10 metres to support the cantilevered front portion of the upper office floors; at ground level, the columns form a monumental gateway for staff entrance.
