Al Shirawi Contracting’s relationship with Dubai Knowledge Village has been an ongoing success story for the past five years.
After completing the waterproofing for Knowledge Village phases I & II in Dubai Internet City, and phase I in Academic City, Al Shirawi Contracting has now completed waterproofing the substructure, wet area and roof in phase II of Academic City.
The total project area involved around 23,000 m2 of substructure, 8,000 m2 of roof and 1,500 m2 of wet area.
Bitumat Premierflex 2000 [5mm] was used for the substructure and roof, while the wet area was completed using liquid-applied polyurethane Rooftex from Conren in the UK. The work was completed on time and to the satisfaction of the main contractor, consultant and the client.
Al Shirawi is now engaged in waterproofing for the third phase of Knowledge Village in Academic City, where work has already started on substructure waterproofing.
“We are thankful and proud to be associated with Al Basti and Muktha, Dar Consultant and Tecom on this project and thank them for having confidence in Al Shirawi Contracting’s capabilities,” said S. Sekhar, General Manager of the Waterproofing Division.
