Creation of a Marina Tower in Lusail, Qatar
In Lusail, a newly designed city that is being constructed north of Doha, Qatar, a modern marina is under construction. Once completed, the marina will offer 142 berths for 8-40m long yachts.
DYWIDAG is involved in the construction of the Marina COM-05 office tower . The tower has a total area of 19,460m² including 3 basement floors which will be used as parking, as well as a shopping area on the ground floor and the two podiums. The 25 floors above will accommodate offices.
The simple and flexible system of flat slab post-tensioning using DYWIDAG Strand Tendons was successfully used for this construction project. In total, 90t of DYWIDAG Tendons were installed in the floor slabs of the Marina COM-05 Tower. All tendons were anchored with Type 3-0.5" or 5-0.5" Flat Anchorages.
