In the aftermath of the August 4th
port explosion, countless buildings were severely damaged in the Gemayzeh. One
of these buildings is the historic Salim Gholam Heritage Building. This
building tells the story of the architectural development in Beirut between
1870 and 1930. As a result of the explosion it endured structural cracks on the
facades as well as major damage to the internal and external wall plaster.
As part of our “Roofs That Shield Beirut” program our hardworking team;
in partnership with the AUB Neighborhood Initiative, Save Beirut Heritage and
CTI Contracting, restored the building following the highest standard method
for heritage buildings.
At Nusaned we greatly value our Lebanese culture and take pride in
preserving our heritage. This culture is ingrained in Beirut’s beautiful
traditional buildings and we aim to not only rehabilitate what has been
destroyed but to preserve the legacy of these buildings
We are grateful to IWC for supporting the Salim Gholam Heritage Building
restoration and to our amazing team that brought this historic building back to
