CCL simultaneously post-tensioned four towers within the Abraj Quartier development.

Also known as ‘Neighbourhood of Towers’, The Abraj Quartier forms part of The Pearl, Qatar. it comprises two beacon-like office towers which serve as a gateway to the island, as well as five further towers.

CCL completed post-tensioning works on one of the two office towers which led to the company being awarded the contracts for a further four residential towers within the complex.

The company undertook the post-tensioning design and carried out the installation of its XF post-tensioning system for the four, 39-storey structures.

CCL devised a solution to construct the four towers simultaneously. The company’s ability to draw upon its considerable locally-based resources in Qatar meant it was able to deploy a team for each tower. All four worked in parallel and installed an average of three levels of post-tensioned slabs per month, per tower in order to meet the targets of the main contractor, Shapoorji Pallonji Qatar.
