Beirut Shopping Mall for RMD

RMD Kwikform is helping Saudi contractor Al Saad General Contracting bring the popular Middle East City Centre Mall chain run by UAE based Majid al Futtaim to Beirut with the construction of the 125,000 m² Beriut City Centre Mall complex.

Covering an area in excess of 60,000 m², the $300M, 6 storey Beirut City Centre Mall will be Lebanon’s largest mall when completed in mid 2013. The construction of this 200 shop development has been fast tracked due in part to the contractor’s use of a range of formwork and shoring equipment from RMD Kwikform.

The main contractor purchased in excess of 300 tonnes of RMD Kwikform’s Kwikstage propping systems, special adjustable bespoke column, straight and curved wall and lift core formwork.

RMD Kwikform is helping Saudi contractor Al Saad General Contracting bring the popular Middle East City Centre Mall chain run by UAE based Majid al Futtaim to Beirut with the construction of the 125,000 m² Beriut City Centre Mall complex.   Having proven its’ equipment capabilities and engineering expertise by being the sole formwork and shoring supplier on the construction of the worlds largest shopping mall, The Dubai Mall, RMD Kwikform was a natural choice for Al Saad, as Project Manager Eng. Nabil Abdallah commented: “Whenever you take on a large landmark project of this kind, there is a great deal of expertise required in its delivery.

“Having won the project in a highly competitive tender process in early 2009, we ourselves put out a tender for the formwork and shoring requirements for the job and were looking at a sole supplier agreement.

“In particular when we looked at the overall design of the mall, we recognised that there were potential savings to be achieved by opting for an adjustable column formwork solution. We liked RMD Kwikform’s approach in designing a simple system that could be adapted to our sites exact requirements.

“To speed up the slab construction we opted for an in-situ concrete beam system supporting pre-cast deck slabs with an in-situ concrete topping. The propping systems provided an economical and quick to erect system for the support of the primary beams with the added benefit of being an excellent access system for use during the finishing stages of the works. Youssef Alouf, RMD Kwikform Lebanon Branch Manager was on hand on an almost daily basis on the project providing a level of personal support to my construction team which was invaluable during the early stages of equipment erection and striking”.

The project is a significant success for the RMD Kwikform operation in Beirut and represents the largest single contract undertaken in the country to date.
