Bank of Mozambique opens new base in Maputo

The Bank of Mozambique has inaugurated its $300-million new headquarters in the centre of Maputo after six years of construction.

The 87,500-sqm red, blue and silver hub comprises three adjoining buildings of which the main, central office tower (Torre de Escritorios) occupies 29 floors. 

 The second largest building, the 19-storey Car Silo, combines office space with parking spaces, while the six-floor Technical Hub is used to house equipment such as power generators.

 Portuguese construction company Teixeira Duarte was contracted to expand and modernise the former bank headquarters – which dated to 1964 – including the installation of state-of-the-art security and money-storing facilities.
