State Audit Bureau Kuwait City, Kuwait


The State Audit Bureau of Kuwait manages and monitors public funds on behalf of the Kuwait Government and National Assembly, and the new 50,000 sq.m headquarters complex comprises state-of-the-art office space, IT-based auditing facilities, conference centre, training facilities and library.

The complex comprises three ten-storey office buildings linked by full-height atria and sky gardens with the complete façade fronted by a spectacular curved glazed perimeter wall.

The Delmatic lighting management system provides fully flexible switching and dimming of lighting throughout the complex: lighting within corridor and circulation areas is controlled on a circuit basis (and related to occupation of adjoining office areas) while each office luminaire is independently switched and/or dimmed to provide total flexibility within cellular and open-plan zones. Scene-setting dimming from control panels and infra-red devices is provided within meeting rooms on the executive floors.
