For the new head office of Qatar Pretoleum District, we manufactured, delivered, and installed more than one hundred thousand square meters of Maars walls. The office has ten towers in total, six of them will be provided with the Maars living walls.
We supplied various wall systems and door types for this project. String² Melamine panels, Panorama light with single and double glazing, 4000 single glass doors, 400 XL flush glass doors and 80 wooden doors.
The six towers are divided between two different contractors, Al Balagh and Al Ghanim. The project started in June 2019 together with these two contractors. The architect who designed the towers had Maars walls in his specification. In addition, 13 other wall systems were specified. Of all wall systems, Maars was chosen as the best solution for the project!
It is not the first time that Maars supplied walls for a project of a size like this. However, it always is challenging. That is of course because of the size, our production is often focused on the QPD project for weeks in a row.
The walls and doors must be manufactured, delivered and installed within nine months, a short lead time which means that our production facility is now extra focused and efficient.
The installation must be ready by the end of November, and now we are busy with the installation. The design of the building is curved. This also presents challenges during installation. Our dealer AlKaabi Contracting, who has been a Maars dealer for over 18 years, takes care of the installation of this challenging project.
Just a few more weeks and then we hope to be able to share the end result. A result with a hundred thousand square meters of Maars walls, that remains impressive!
