The newest LIB branch office is located in the Al-Fuwaihat area, the commercial center of Benghazi, adjacent to the shopping area of Al-Pepsi, a vibrant district of businesses, shops, and markets. The LIB office features a ground floor retail banking area, two office floors above, and a reinforced concrete basement floor where the high security bank safe is situated.
After consulting with Penetron North Africa, the contractor, Dar Elkhabra, specified PENETRON ADMIX, a crystalline concrete waterproofing admixture, for the concrete mix to mitigate chloride ion penetration and potential corrosion of the reinforced concrete structures of the below-grade bank safe rooms of the new Libyan Islamic Bank office. PENEBAR SW-45A swellable waterstop strips were also installed to seal all the construction joints.
