e.construct proposed precast/presetessed concrete as alternate solution to the original cast in situ design. Hollow core slabs with Precast Prestressed beams were proposed, in additional to Precast slab units as cantilever projection. Lateral stability was checked then structural design calculation as well as shop drawings were prepared for beams and slabs. Technical support was provided during construction.
During the thriving construction boom in Dubai, meeting tight construction schedules was always a challenge. e.construct Value Engineering and alternative designs maximized the prefabrication in the structure by using precast concrete in almost all of the horizontal structural elements. This took place while meeting all the stringent requirements of the Architect and the MEP design for the proposed high end residence apartment.
