Ooredoo Maldives, one of the country’s leading telecom companies, has begun work on its new headquarters.
Najib Khan, CEO and Managing Director of Ooredoo, and board directors laid the foundation stone for the new building, which will be placed near Central Park in Hulhumale, on Sunday.
The company’s managing director stated at the event that the new facility had been a long-held goal of the company’s employees.
“It’s been a 16-year successful journey of contributing to the community and technological innovation in the Maldives. And this structure, too, is environmentally friendly, with rainwater collection and energy-saving features,” Khan explained.
“It’s a dream building for us, and we’re expecting it will be a fantastic iconic monument here in Hulhumale’ Phase I,” he said. “There will undoubtedly be more investment in this city.”
According to Khan, the 11-story structure would also have a leisure centre, café, conference room, and lecture hall. China State Construction Engineering was hired to build the new Ooredoo headquarters.
