Efficient construction in Al Khobar

No, Saudi Arabia is not a merely a low-efficiency, dirty cast-in-place market. Also precast has its place, and is growing.

I had an opportunity to visit “Al Rashid Abetong” job site, which was clean and efficient in all respects. The material stock of the job site was almost non-existent, the elements were brought in just on time.  These three residential towers and a hotel was under construction in Al Khobar, Eastern province of Saudi Arabia with an impressive speed of whole frame up within 22 months.
For me of course the nicest thing was to see the various Peikko items used in the job site. Glad to have Peikko components in such a speedy and quality focused building site!

Three apartment towers erected, now the hotel is on the way
