Raft foundation works complete on Burj Sabah in Dubai
Located in Dubai’s Jumeirah Village Circle, Burj Sabah’s raft foundation took 24 hours to complete, and required the support of a 140-strong onsite crew
RSG International has announced that raft foundation works for its Burj Sabah project have completed.
Located in Dubai’s Jumeirah Village Circle (JVC), Burj Sabah is a 19-storey residential tower that will feature studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments.
The project’s raft foundation took 24 hours to complete, and required the support of a 140-strong onsite crew working in two shifts. The project team comprised 15 engineers and administrators, and 125 concrete workers, masons, and assistants.
Burj Sabah’s raft foundation necessitated 3,400m3 of concrete, and 640 tonnes of steel. Works were conducted on Islamic New Year to avoid traffic-related delays when transporting the concrete from plant to site.
The job was completed by Al Asri Engineering Consultant and Team Engineering Enterprises. Three concrete pumps, one standby machine, and a fleet of concrete mixers were enlisted to conduct raft foundation works.
At certain points, 12 concrete mixers were on site simultaneously, according to RSG International. The UAE-headquartered real estate developer added that “no expense was spared to ensure the best quality and resources were employed”.
Burj Sabah is scheduled to complete by February 2019.
