Project: Phase one of The Lagoons residential and commercial project in Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Contractor: Al Naboodah Construction Group LLC, Dubai, UAE
Principal: Rutter Immobiliengruppe, Vienna, Austria
MEVA system: Slab formwork system MevaDec with early stripping
Engineering and support: MEVA KHK Formwork Systems, Dubai
The Lagoons is set to be a signature development within Dubai’s booming property sector, with unique offerings and a strategic location. It will have seven islands, comprising residential units, shopping centres, office buildings and marinas. These detached islands will be interlinked by bridges. Typical for residential projects of this type is the demand for efficiency and speed. The MevaDec hand-set slab system proved once more to be best in class in terms of cost, speed and quality of the slab work. These advantages come from flexibility with filler areas, easy adaptation to building layouts, reduced inventory thanks to early stripping and quick cycles without using a crane. This allows for easy planning, logistics and smooth work flow, thus saving time. In addition to speed, the system delivers a superior, smooth concrete surface thanks to the panel’s all-plastic alkus facing.
