Welcome to the BIBF of the future. Become a part of it today.
Inspired by the modern architecture of the building overlooking the Arabian Gulf, the Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance (BIBF) has embarked on an ambitious project, that will epitomize its Vision to be the Institute of Choice for the Development of Business Professionals not only in the Kingdom of Bahrain, but also regionally and internationally.
The project site enjoys a dominant location, located on the North Shore Highway and surrounded by the most iconic buildings and landmarks of Bahrain Bay, hosting a wide view towards Manama’s north shore.
Structural Aspects & Design
Plans for the BIBF’s Headquarters Building has been made with several environmentally conscious strategies in mind, to construct a sustainable and environmentally friendly approach within the site’s development with district cooling, wastewater management, irrigation and greenery. Using recycled wood from local dhow yards and exposed concrete elements within the interior designs of the buildings allow for a modern and sustainable interior that mixes in boldly with the vibrant brand colours of the BIBF. This provides a warm and sophisticated environment throughout and gives the overall design a foundation true to the roots and story of the location.
The effective design plan within the building will include:
- 50 classrooms
- Executive Training Classrooms
- An Executive
- State of the Art Dealing Room fully equipped with Trading
- Floor Screens and a live news Ticker
- A full-equipped Library
- Several Examination Halls and Lecture Halls
- Effective classroom divisions for learners
- Tidy and well maintained soft landscaping
- Easy and clear access to personnel for assistance
- A fully functional car park building
- Visitor (VIP) parking provision
The Iconic Building
The iconic HQ building acts as a highly visible Manama landmark at its highest point. Its crisp glass and aluminum façade reflects the sunlight during the day, and illuminates the area during the evening, providing an impressive principal entrance to the building.
