Bonded DYWIDAG Tendons for the Al Tilal 1 Project in Lusail, Qatar
The planned city of Lusail north of Doha, Qatar, is being built on an area of approx. 35km² in a desert. Once completed, the new city will have 200,000 inhabitants, and 170,000 people are expected to work there in the future.
This is where the Al Tilal 1 project is being constructed: A major project with a total of 17 buildings that will accommodate comfortable 1-3 bedroom apartments.
DYWIDAG Strand Tendons were used in 9 of the 4 storey buildings that include basements and have a total area of 54,000m². The post-tensioned flat slabs can accommodate high loads, and the DYWIDAG Bonded Flat Anchor System furthermore ensures a rapid construction progress. In total, 245t of strands were necessary for the DYWIDAG Strand Tendons with Type 3-0.5" and 5-0.5" Flat Anchorages that were installed in this project.
