When selected to carry out the post-tensioning work on a new BOT (build, operate, transfer) building within the emirate, CCL delivered an informative seminar for the Ministry of Public Works design and operation staff to discuss its comprehensive portfolio and provide a greater understanding of the post-tensioning process before work commenced.
The presentation explained the benefits of PT slabs including faster construction, greater flexibility, lower CO2 emissions and reduced costs. Details of the systems used and their capabilities were also discussed. This was followed up by a review of CCL’s many international project references. Visitors to the event, held at the ministry’s main building, included the assistant of the deputy minister, the heads of design and the heads of commissions.
The presentation was given by Mr. John Habib, General Manager, CCL Kuwait; Alberto Issa, Technical Manager; and Marcos Makram, Project Engineer.
