52,000 cubic meters of ready-mix concrete
The building’s shell is made entirely of concrete. According to Mohammed Azami, an engineer with the building consortium STGM, the structures required the largest amount of ready-mix concrete ever: a total of 52,000 cubic meters.
The concrete facade is coated in a special light-colored lacquer to match Casablanca's cityscape. In addition, a special building technique was used to support the foundations, which are set in water reaching 10 meters in depth.
