Pouring fast, pouring high

Located between Sharjah and Dubai, close to Dubai International Airport, yet close to all amenities – Sahara Tower 6 is a residential tower offering luxury apartments with various bedroom configurations. The first block has 39 floors and the second block has 21, the facilities include a gym, a communal garden area and 24/7 security services for facility management. Al Thuriah is committed to high-quality construction and chose MEVA KHK’s comprehensive engineering services and rental formwork to complete expansive concrete works. The site relied on MEVA‘s heavy-duty wall formwork system Mammut 350 and its 100 kN/ m² load capacity to cope with the high pours and tightly scheduled pour cycles, which were planned and supported by the engineering team at MEVA KHK in Dubai.
