Project in Brief:
– Bracing beams for several buildings are now complete with the first-floor slabs set to begin.
– Soil protection measures have begun, and progress is steady.
The Overall Progress of Several Buildings at the end of February 2020
Bracing beams are now complete for several buildings, ready for the first floor slab installation. For this, we have started construction of the scaffold to support the floor slab form work.

Bracing beams for level 1 of several buildings are now under construction while soil protection work is in progress.

New Building in the Lower Zone
A new building is under construction in the lower zone, with no soil problems or obstructions, so progress is continuing under favourable conditions.

The Water Tank
The water tank, which is located above the project, must be finished to prevent obstruction to residential buildings in the upper zone.

Soil Protection in the Construction Area
We have been employing soil protection measures since the beginning of February to maintain soil strength and safety as construction work continues.
According to our soil engineer, soil protection measures are now complete for some areas and the soil conditions are good and strong enough to support the construction load. Therefore, we are set to lay the first-floor slab for the first building in these areas.

The Whole Soil Protection Process Takes Approximately 2 Months
