DOKA formworks supporting the two towers project in West Bay.

28. August 2012

Arabtec’s ongoing project “Twin Towers” that rises in Doha West Bay skyline was started in 2010 and still under construction and supported by Doka’s formworks to ensure fast build and safe delivery, the project comprises of two towers with 185 meters height each, and will accommodate 48 floors, a luxury hotel and offices.

The dual concrete cores project was supplied with 94 automatic climbers in total and 1,800 m² of formwork to accelerate the towers climbing ahead. The climbing scaffolds come with completely railed-in working platforms and are anchored to the concrete at all times – ensuring the greatest safety for the site crew even in high wind conditions. Live loads can be left in place on the platforms while the system is being climbed, so high-speed working is guaranteed
Mohammed Ali Al Nada, Project Manager at Arabtec, is satisfied with the construction process: “Collaborating with Doka Qatar has gone very smoothly, during the planning stage as well the implementation. The formwork systems that we have in use are easy to handle and significantly helped us to both improve the efficiency and to save time. The Doka team showed significant technical knowledge, right from the very beginning of the planning stage. My team has benefited from this formwork know-how, from Doka's on-time deliveries, and the after-sales services were first-class as well.
