مبنى مكاتب


Explanation:
In truth, I am not clear on what you mean.

If this is a building, i.e., an edifice that houses offices, then MABNA MAKATIB is pretty standard.

If "building" refers to the act of constructing offices, then consider:

إنشاء مكاتب
تشييد مكاتب
إقامة مكاتب

If it is something else, then you may want to repost this question with ample context.
