                                        PART 1.             Background

1.1 Introduction
       The Commercial Bank of Ethiopia (CBE) is the leading bank in Ethiopia, established in 1942. It has over 200
       branches stretched across the country, and has a vision of becoming a world class commercial bank.

1.2 Project Goals & Objectives
       The Commercial Bank of Ethiopia (CBE) shared the same building for many years with the National Bank of
       Ethiopia as its head office before moving to its current head office, but still maintains use of the circular wing
       and some floors on the high rise block. The current head office was built by a developer before being acquired
       by CBE. The Commercial Bank of Ethiopia has its head office functions spread out in several other buildings
       it owns in Addis Ababa. The objective of the new head office building is to house all head office functions
       under one roof. It is envisaged such a move will enable CBE to achieve its goal of providing first class service
       to its customers by creating a conducive atmosphere and up to date technical facilities.

1.3 The Site
       CBE has recently acquired a plot of land in Addis Ababa at a prime location within the ‘Central Business
       District’ next to Ethiopia Hotel (N9o01 & E38o45). The site is bound by established roads on three sides. The
       Addis Ababa Planning Office has approved CBE’s request to plan for a building of more than 30-storeys
       subject to design solutions to be obtained through the architectural design competition.

       The acquired plot is situated in a relatively flat and flood prone area adjoining the Filwoha springs. There have
       been reports of a fault line running in close proximity in connection with other projects that had been planned
       in the Filwoha area. Experience from the present Head Office and the nearby National Theatre indicates that
       the ground water level is high and a constant problem in basement areas. Utilities including sewerage lines are
       available in the area.

       The site is located at a very important intersection of Yohanis Street leading from the intersection opposite the
       National Theatre to the National Palace, on the northern side, and Ras Desta Damtew Street forking off
       Churchill Avenue and ending at Revolution Square, on the eastern side. The street on the western side of the
       plot, General Abebe Damtew Street, is at present a one-way street. The plot was previously occupied by one-
       storey residential villas later converted to various commercial uses. Both the old and present head offices of
       CBE are within walking distance from the site.

       The Addis Ababa planning office has detail requirements regarding setback from the right-of-way. This will
       particularly affect the streets on the north and east sides. ‘Blue’ and ‘Red’ line requirements shall be checked
       with the planning office together with the other planning requirements. The minimum BAR (Built-up Area
       Ratio) of 75 % is also prescribed.

1.4 The Design Programme
       The design programme for the New Head Office project comprises of a net floor area of more than 48,000 m2
       housing the Head Office Organ, staff amenities & commercial centre, rental offices and parking space. The
       requirements regarding space, function, sustainability and symbolic value are set out through a study taking
       into consideration local and international trends in bank design. A schedule of accommodation is also
       developed on the basis of a flexible organization structure, expected increase in staff strength and in response
       to urban design requirements. The design programme also sets out in broad terms symbolic requirements in
       keeping with CBE’s vision of becoming a world class bank.

                                   PART 3.           Design Programme
                                       I) Design Requirements

3.1 Space Requirements

       3.1.1 The space requirements for the New Head Office Project are developed on the basis of a
                flexible organization structure, expected increase in staff strength, and a contribution to the
                overall cityscape of the central business district. The design solution shall address these basic
                conditions.


       3.1.2 A progression of area sizes (9, 16, 24, 30,45,60,90,120 & 150m2) with non-overlapping 20%
                ranges has been used for office spaces. A similar approach is expected from the design
                solution.


       3.1.3 The design programme is sub-divided into three parts that shall be distinctly self- contained.
                Connections at a limited number of properly controllable locations may be envisaged. The
                Head Office Organ, the Staff Amenities & Commercial Centre the Rental Offices and the
                Parking Building cover a net area of 15,001 m2, 13,430 m2, 12,225 m2, and 7,629 m2
                respectively. The total planned net area of the CBE Head Quarters Building is 48,285 m2. The
                details are given in section II of the design programme as a schedule of accommodation.

       3.1.4 The schedule of accommodation is developed on the basis of combinations of sub-units, units,
                wings and floors with respective areas of 100, 200, 400 & 800m2 covering the range of
                functional requirements of operational sections and rental tenancies. A similar approach is
                expected from the design solution.

       3.1.5 The room sizes in the schedule of accommodation are net areas. It is required that the area
                provided not exceed or be less than the given figures by more than 10%. This allowance is
                made to cater to reasonable variations due to particular space configurations.


       3.1.6 The total gross area indicated in the schedule of accommodation is 2 times the total net area.
