Mathis wins first timber project in Qatar
Doha, January 7, 2013
Mathis SA, the European leader in glulam timber construction, has secured its first laminated project in Qatar.
Mathis has completed several projects in Saudi Arabia and the UAE, such as the extension to King Khaled Airport, and a 35,000 sq m storage building Adnoc.
After two years of marketing in Qatar, Mathis has secured the glulam elements of a project in the military parade zone of the new international airport at Doha.
The 80 m x 20 m structure, a mixture of timber / steel elements and a fabric covering, was the obvious and natural choice because of technical, aesthetic, and ecological reasons.
“Our philosophy is simple: we aid and assist the architects to realize their projects with our timber structures,” said Alan Dolléans, International Project manager.
Mathis provides all the structural calculations and drawings, carries out the fabrication of the structure, arranges the transportation from the factory to the site, and monitors the erection of the frame.
The timber elements were shipped by sea, and then delivered to site by lorries. The structure was erected in one week without any difficulty. The contractor responsible for the erection, experienced in erecting steel structures, and was pleasantly surprised by the ease of installing the 23 m long beams.
“Our trump card is to integrate the engineering design with the digitally controlled CNC fabrication machinery so that when the elements arrive on site they can rapidly and accurately be assembled in record time,” Dolléans added. – TradeArabia News Service
