The B Square Mall in Doha: Rapid Construction Progress using Flat Slab Post-Tensioning
The district of Al Thumama south of Doha, Qatar, is a popular residential area that has recently experienced a rise in population. This development is taken into account by the new shopping center B Square Mall that was recently opened there.
The two-storey building that also has a basement features a built-up area of 29,695.5m². The ground floor accommodates a large supermarket, a department store, retail facilities and several kiosks. On the upper floor, there are several kiosks, retail facilities as well as a cinema and a food court.
The flat slabs of the new shopping center were post-tensioned using the DYWIDAG Flat Anchor System in order to ensure rapid completion of the construction work. In total, more than 110t of strand in ducts with Type 3-0.5" and 5-0.5" DYWIDAG Flat Anchorages were installed.
