Twintec design jointless floor slab
Twintec has designed and constructed the first slab of its kind in the Sohar Freezone for developer Al Siraj Logistics (FZC).
The development will cater specifically to the needs of freezone companies requiring high quality warehousing and light industrial facilities on a leasehold basis.
A Twintec ‘jointless’ concrete floor slab was the ideal design solution to meet Al Siraj’s requirements for international standards, business flexibility and operational efficiency. Phase 1 of the development consists of 14 units, providing 600m2 of ground floor area with a 150m² mezzanine for storage or conversion into office space.
The 9,100m² was constructed to a slab depth of 150mm incorporating high tensile strength steel fibres in 5 working days.
Steel profile armoured construction joints were used at the edge of each panel to facilitate smooth load transfer and the slab was finished using a natural coloured dry-shake topping to provide a high abrasion resistance.
DG BIM Consulting project managed the development alongside Dolphin Contracting.
Palak Majmudar, Operations Manager at DG BIM stated “Twintec’s highly skilled team and close collaboration between all parties involved in the project was key to the successful completion.”
Twintec operate in Oman with local partner Aflag Group to offer a unique Design-Build-Insure service to ensure that total responsibility for the design and construction of the floor slab lies with Twintec as a specialist flooring contractor.
