Project

Al Lusaily Reservoir, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Efficient Special Designs

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority has completed building the water reservoir at Al Lusaily. The reservoir has a capacity of 450 million litres of desalinated water to improve and extend the city’s fresh water supply.

For MEVA KHK, it proved yet another succesful large-scale water project. The engineering team provided Ghantoot Contracting with design and formwork inventory for the columns, tank and baffle walls. Very fast pours to heights above 5 m were achieved with the heavy-duty formwork system Mammut 350 and its 100 kN/m² load capacity.

Columns with special design

The next challenge was pouring hundreds of columns with large mushroom- shaped column heads. MEVA engineers developed, designed and produced special L-shape steels units in two heights to handle all the pours easily and fast. The solution proved cost-effective and contributed to a zero hitch workflow.

    As Qatar’s population and economy keep growing and water demand is increasing, the Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation (KAHRAMAA) has launched an ambitious water project to provide increased water storage capacities and extend the supply reserve of drinking water from two to seven days.

  • South Canal Bridge, Ontario: With no crane possible at busy Hwy 400, MevaLite handles the job with ease

    South Canal Bridge, Ontario: With no crane possible at busy Hwy 400, MevaLite handles the job with ease

    One of Ontario’s busiest transportation corridors, Highway 400, began a major expansion project through Kings Township in late 2016. This $79.3 million dollar (CAD) project includes the widening of the highway from three to six lanes in each direction for a two mile stretch and also entails safer on and off ramps, the expansion and realignment of culverts, and the replacement of two bridges − one of them the South Canal Bridge.

    A Brand-New Theater for the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company

    The new theater is called The Otto M. Budig Theater and located in Cincinnati’s Over-The-Rhine district. When completed, it will become the last section of the planned “Classical Arts Corridor” in Cincinnati, which also includes a Music Hall, School for Creative and Performing Arts, and a park.
