It is possible that they are having ground water problems which caused the delay.

[IMG]http://i42.************/ev0vol.jpg[/IMG]


However, as I passed by almost two months before the project was announced on the list that the port of the project is Arabtec



Is the dissolution of the contract with ACC and then won by the company Arabtec

Lamar Towers to change Jeddah corniche’s skyline

EDDAH - Construction of Lamar Towers - the first integrated skyscraper project in the Western Region of Saudi Arabia - is now in full swing after the completion of the most important phase of the project which was the concrete mat casting for the 76-storey highest tower with 72 stories as planned.
Officials of Cayan for Investment and Development, the main developer of the project, presented to the media on Monday the
already dried casting situated at a foundation 9 meters below the ground surface.
The concrete mat casting covered an area of 1,200 cubic meters, and a depth of three meters. Some 6,200 cubic meters of ready mix concrete and 1,500 tons of different sizes of rebar were used.
Ahmed Al-Hatti, chairman of Cayan, said the two-tower Lamar project is considered as one of the most important investment projects in Saudi Arabia with a capital of SR3 billion. Its second tower would have 69 stories.
Concrete mat casting work for the second tower will be implemented right after the Eid Al-Adha holidays “in line with the (project) timetable,” he pointed out.
Due to the enormity of the project, Cayan tapped the expertise of a number of companies for the execution of the project. They are Arabtec Alsaad as the main contractor, Turner Company as the project manager, and Saudi Diyar as the engineering supervisor.
The main investor in the project is Zahran Real Estate Company.
One of the unique architectural concepts, the Lamar Towers, overlooking the Red Sea, is being considered as one of the most remarkable landmarks of the world.
The unique yet remarkable set of towers is sure to drastically change Jeddah’s skyline along the corniche, and arguably redefine the boundaries of architectural design in the world. – SG

Lamar Towers' foundations completed

20 December 2009
JEDDAH - Arabtec Saudi Arabia & Alsaad General Contracting joint venture announced on Saturday the achievement of a major milestone with the casting of the two raft foundations for the Lamar Towers, the tallest twin towers in the Western Region, Saudi Arabia.

Lamar project, developed by Cayan International Company, worth approximately SR2 billion, is on schedule.

In parallel, foundation works are also being carried out in the adjoining Podium areas along the tower footprints that will incorporate the residential and commercial units, and a shopping mall.

"We have just poured over 11,100 cubic meters using almost 3,000 tons of steel, covering an area of approximately 4,000 sq m and approximately 3m in depth, and it was all orchestrated smoothly" said Mehriz Abdo, senior project manager for the project.

The Arabtec slip-form system for the Towers' cores is already delivered to site and is being installed.

Major plant and equipment have already been mobilized to site and are now in operation. Lamar Towers incorporates futuristic architectural designs with twin glass towers aligned in a V shape. Tower 1 has 73 floors and Tower 2 has 65 floors and helipad with two basement levels including the mezzanine levels.

The Towers incorporate residential and commercial units which will include shopping malls.

"This is indeed a great accomplishment by the team and a milestone for both Jeddah and Saudi Arabia.

Our teams are very excited about our prospects in this new market" said Riad Kamal, CEO of Arabtec Holding.

As a repeat client, Cayan is confident Arabtec -Al Saad General Contracting, JV will deliver a high-quality and satisfactory finished product on time. "Our alliance with Arabtec Saudi Arabia has created a new perspective in building construction. We are confident of the pace of the work that we have observed which highlights Arabtec's project execution and management skills. Construction work is progressing and Cayan is looking forward to seeing the rest of the project take shape," said Usama Sarraj, Cayan development manager. "Due to Arabtec's strategic project management and integrated systems, they are on schedule as noticed in five months of construction," he said.
