It's Under Construction :

Cyril Sweett manages single largest foundation pour in history of Saudi Arabia



Cyril Sweett International (Cyril Sweett) is pleased to announce that the concrete pour on the foundations of Saudi Arabia's prestigious Capital Market Authority (CMA) tower has been successfully completed, following a deep excavation of over 30 metres and over 4,000 tonnes of steel reinforcements.

The pour was executed by the Saudi Bin Laden Group (SBG), under direct management of Cyril Sweett. The CMA tower is the tallest tower in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia currently under construction and this was the single largest concrete pour recorded in the history of the Kingdom to date. With one and half consecutive days of concrete being pumped into the raft foundation, 13,000 cubic metres of concrete mix were used to complete the 4.5 metre high foundation.

Commenting on the pour, Des Pike, Project Director of Cyril Sweet, said, "The concrete pour was scheduled to last 42 hours but was successfully completed within 36 hours. Throughout the operation, mobile truck mixers were arriving on site at an average of one every 90 seconds, a significant logistical feat in itself. This is a great achievement for all parties involved who worked continuously around the clock to ensure its success."

Dr. Said Rabiah, CMA Project Department Manager, said, "We are delighted to see the foundations of the CMA Tower have been completed on schedule. The success of this massive undertaking was the result of the remarkable efforts and collaboration of all parties involved. This could not have been achieved without the strong leadership of Cyril Sweett's project management team. I would like to thank the entire project team for achieving this monumental task and very significant milestone."

The CMA tower is the focal project of the King Abdullah Financial District and when completed will soar 385m above ground level. Designed by renowned American architects, HOK, and leading consulting firm Omrania & Associates, the building combines architectural ingenuity with the very best in environmental credentials to achieve a Gold LEED standard.

Guess what guys, the building has been under construction since last June. This picture of the building raft foundation last Augest Thanks to our friend Lonny who works there, otherwise we wouldn't have known about it.



"The last photo shows the CMA Tower raft foundation preparation. The contractor has placed concrete for the bottom and sides to create a neat level and plumb surface to construct the raft foundation for the tower on. Even though this building is not part of our scope of work here, I was able to meet with the designers on another mater and got a close look at the foundation and the building. The foundation has three distinct locations where there will be super columns. These areas of the raft foundation are designed to support the huge columns independently. If you look at the photo you will see the locations at 1/3 the distance around the foundation area, one directly in front of me, the others to the left and right. The columns will measure 3 meters wide by 3.6 meters thick. Pretty big. There is an excellent discussion about the design of the building on engineer Walter P Moore’s site. There is also discussion about the Samba Tower on the site as well. The Samba Tower will be in the Financial Plaza near the CMA and is being constructed by El-Seif."
All this happened way back in the summer.

ibib , nice finds .
the master plan in your last post is the best we have so far , now we can know where every tower will be located .

I've made a request to the modes for this thread to be moved out of the Proposed Supertalls section since it's under construction now . I hope they respond soon .

thanks again ibib .

Wait, there's something missing here. Oh yeah, there's no worthless spire on the top.

Nice design, I like it.

By Loony from KAFDBlog.com

"I checked in on zone 1 today (Tuesday). I was surprised to see two large raft foundations being placed at the same time. Parcel 1.16 had a line of trucks from a concrete company called Premco. It looked like they were doing a good job of delivery."
