MG Developments has revealed contracting with several leading companies to complete internal and external finishes of its fully-fledged administrative/commercial complex in New Cairo, called Headquarters Business (HQ), Invest-Gate reports.
Section Solutions for Glass, the authorized agent of the Belgian company Reynaers Aluminium, was chosen to carry out high-quality aluminum systems. Besides, Italy-based KONE Elevators and Innovere Supplies and Contracting (the contractor approved by LG Egypt) will undertake cooling and ventilation systems, as highlighted in the press release on November 23.
MG Developments Chairman Mohamed Metawee confirmed the selection of the three firms above, in particular, comes from previous well-done work with each one.

“The use of glass facades in the HQ building aims to implement modern advanced systems to beautify real estate, maximize its value, and raise its ability to meet the requirements of current and potential clients of international banks, institutions, and cafes all by using the sciences of external facades and internal systems,” Metawee explained.
He further added, “KONE Elevators will supply and install six elevators of Italian origin to serve all floors of the HQ building, starting from the garage to the roof, as well as allocating two special elevators to serve visitors and the commercial center. The elevators comply with the latest specifications and conditions for safety and usage, as well as the special European codes.”
Meanwhile, Innovere Supplies and Contracting will be responsible for the supply, installation, and operation of the on-site air conditioning and mechanical ventilation systems with highly energy-efficient systems (VRF), providing eco-friendly energy conversion technologies.
