Project Highlights:
The major challenge in heavy industrial construction is being “heavy” itself. Concrete pouring of huge structures requires proper coordination of manpower and equipment, properly installed and well supported formwork, consistent mixtures and steady supply of concrete and additives, and continuous availability of manpower.
Almabani and Saudi Condreco, in several instances, had a continuous concrete pouring activities of more than 1,000 cubic meter for more than 48 hours. The total volume of concrete poured so far in this project is 40,000 cubic meters.
