Gulf Precast Rises to the Challenge of 5 Villas Per Day

May 7, 2011

ABU DHABI, UAE, May 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Large villa construction
projects, catering for UAE Nationals housing requirements, are high on the
present agenda of the UAE planning authorities, as confirmed by the recent
announcement by the Urban Planning Council that 13,000 new villas for Emirati
families will be constructed over the next few years. Gulf Precast Concrete
Company, a UAE Leader in Precast manufacturing and construction, possesses a
long track record of building large housing developments in the UAE and has
been recently selected by major developers to handle the Precast construction
of more than 2,000 villas in the Al Falah area, Abu Dhabi Emirate.

The scope of Gulf Precast in the Al Falah villa Project covers the full
superstructure, comprising external and internal wall panels, flooring and
roof, facade light-weight decorative elements, more than 220 kilometers of
surrounding boundary walls as well as the substructure and superstructure
works for numerous electrical substations of the villa development. The
critical challenge was to consistently produce and build five villas per day.
As a leader in the UAE Precast industry, Gulf Precast could mobilise seven of
its plants to achieve this requirement, amongst which a mobile production
facility that was directly installed and commissioned on site. More than
1,100 villas have already been manufactured, 850 installed on site, in
addition to 20 kilometers of boundary wall.

Commenting on the rationale for selecting Precast for major villa
development projects, Elias Seraphim, Chief Executive Officer of Gulf Precast
said; “The decision takes into consideration multiple aspects, such as time,
quality, safety, sustainability and cost. Precast is ideal for large villa
projects, at it fosters substantial cost savings through economy of scale and
allows to significantly reduce the construction time. As Precast elements are
produced in a factory environment before being assembled on site, all
components are controlled and inspected before being transported, which
allows for better quality and sustainability. Fast assembly limits
considerably the risk exposure entailed by working at height, rendering
Precast projects much safer than traditional ones.”

In order to cater for its ambitious construction developments, the United
Arab Emirates
construction industry is increasingly depending on the presence
of long established Precast manufacturers such as Gulf Precast, with a
substantial production capacity and state-of-the-art equipment and machinery,
who can ensure completion on time and fulfill stringent quality and
sustainability standards, while keeping costs to a minimum.
