Stretching almost 5 kilometres into the Arabian Gulf, Palm Jumeirah doubles Dubai‘s shoreline and is home to a new destination with world-class hotels, shopping malls, homes, entertainment and leisure. Part of this develop- ment by Nakheel is the Azure Residence project encompassing 170 luxury appartments being built directly on the waterfront by contractor UNEC. Typical for residential projects of this nature is the demand for the best possible efficiency and speed. Since the slabs constitute the largest part of concrete works in terms of area, the formwork methods were looked at very closely. The MevaDec slab system proved once more to be best in class in terms of cost, speed, efficiency and quality.
These advantages come from flexibility with minimised compensation areas, easy adaptation to building layouts, reduced inventory through the early stripping method and quick cycles without crane. Safety and ease of assembly with zero error (the prop positions are defined by the system) allow for easy planning, logistics and work flow, saving time and money.
