Highlights of MCB Tower - Karachi

The modern, urbane architecture and intelligent design of MCB Tower reflect MCB’s pioneering role in the banking arena, providing cutting edge, innovative banking solution- leading with an edge of technology.

Towering at 116 meters, with 29 levels and 3 basements, MCB tower is the tallest building in Pakistan. It is a sound representation of MCB’s leadership position in the banking sector, testified by four “best bank in Pakistan” Euro money Awards in five years.

Specialized secant piling works to protect adjacent buildings during construction of the 3 basement levels & foundation.

One of the most integrated safety and security features with 24 x 7 surveillance system including smart card access to prevent unauthorized entry at any level.

From furniture design to signages, MCB tower has been designed with exquisite attention to detail.

The bank produces its own power by 1.2 MW gas turbine backed-up by two separate diesel generating sets. The heat recovery system insured that the heat produced thus is used to operate the chillers for the central air conditioning system thereby achieving an unprecedented level of power / energy consumption.

State of the art Fire / Smoke detection Alarm and sprinklised suppression system backed-up by a central fire fighting system. Rooftop garden and gymnasium with unparalleled views of the city skyline

6 high speed Elevators with a unique call system which identifies, allocates and assigns each passenger to a  particular elevator to optimize their  wait and travel time.

Double insulated glazing to reduce heat loss by upto 30 % and reduce noise level significantly. The glass used is specially tempered to increase strength 5 times, eliminating the risk of damage.
