TTM has been awarded a $275,000 (QAR1m) post-tensioning (PT) contract for C09 Lusail Marina in Qatar. The firm, which is owned by Saudi Arabia’s KBW Investments, will be responsible for the design and implementation of PT technology at the development. TTM was appointed by Al Wefaq Engineering, the contractor and developer of the $30.2m (QAR110m) project.
TTM estimates that the integration of PT technology at C09 Lusail Marina will result in a 25% cost reduction. It also stated that a steel-laden RC slab-beam installation would take up to 50% longer to build.
