Sharjah Cement Factory (Material Storage Warehouse)
The Sharjah Cement Factory specializes in the production and processing of Portland cement. The material storage warehouse was constructed for stocking raw materials such as coal.
e.construct completed the project on a design and build package. The full structural design, shop drawing preparation, procurement of precast/prefab elements, installation management and hand over was completed by e.construct. This included precast columns, post-tensioned 50m rafters and 3.5m high precast walls.
To achieve the required column-less spans, two 25m long precast beams were post-tensioned on site to form a single 50m span that can rest on two columns without mid support. The precast columns rose 13m high and were erected without the need for propping.
