Project Name: Central Bank of Iraq Starting Date: February, 2009
Project Location: Baghdad Finishing Date: August, 2009

In 2009 a project was started to repair two buildings at the headquarters of the Central Bank of Iraq (CBI) in Baghdad. Work included strengthening the concrete structure of 10 and 6 storey buildings that were damaged by fire. The engineers used high-strength structural repair mortar, with a Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer (CFRP). This was the first time that such a technology had been implemented in Iraq.

The project team collaborated with the engineering consultancy bureau at the Technology University in Baghdad.
