Electrical Facilities

The project's electricity is supplied through a private transformer station with the support of a set of emergency generators. A telephone system network, public address and background music systems cover the entire complex. The complex relies on a building management system that electronically monitors and optimizes the electrical and mechanical functions and handles the energy management.

Mechanical Facilities

Appropriate internal temperatures and a smoke-free atmosphere are integral elements of any successful place. All of Nile City's buildings are therefore fully covered with a central air conditioning system and a state of the art smoke evacuation system. At the same time, 3000-cubic meter of concrete water tanks, supply all parts of the project with water through a copper-piping network.

Parking

The basement contains 4 floors of parking totaling + 1200 car parking places, and some technical rooms. The South Tower apartments have a private parking area on basement level minus one. The hotel operator also have a dedicated parking area on this level. Restricted areas of the basement -1 to -3 could be designated for hotel use only. The rest of the available parking area of the basement levels -1 to -3 and the whole of level -4 area shared by the offices and the shopping mall tenants. These different parking areas can be physically separated from each other to ensure maximum privacy and safety. The parking of South Tower apartments and offices is accessible from the Nile Corniche by one ramp with in and out lanes. The parking for the North Tower Offices, Hotel and public use is accessible from the Nile Corniche by another ramp with in and out lanes, and from the back by two in and out ramp. For the internal circulation between different floors there are two bi-directional ramps, one on either side of the parking area. From the parking levels, the ground floor of the complex is accessible by lifts and stairs. Different lifts, or banks of lifts, give access to the different parts of the complex. Apart from the car parking, the basement also houses a number of technical rooms, two water tanks.

Safety and security

Security measures are numerous and up to the highest standards. To mention only a few examples: The entire complex is equipped with a fire detection and alarm system that complies with international safety measures. In case of fire, an evacuation message is broadcasted in Arabic & English in the building's public area, while a fire siren will be used in the basement and the towers. The complex is fully covered by automatic sprinklers and hose cabinet system. At the same time, the public areas are equipped with a closed television system for surveillance.
