Egypt Post Abu Simbel

In collaboration with IFC and Egypt Post, ECOnsult aims to deliver the first EDGE-certified post office multipurpose building near one of Egypt’s most important tourist destinations, Abu Simbel.

The building offers a post office, a museum and retail shops, all surrounding a courtyard that provides a passive solution for the high temperatures of Abu Simbel. The building is designed with the utmost efficiency in the three major categories; energy, water, and material.

The building delivers a high-quality interior environment and effective thermal insulation, giving employees and customers the best possible indoor experience.
