CEMEX provides innovative building solutions for new hotel and office complex in the heart of Cairo

Date published: April 18, 2013

CEMEX in Egypt is supplying innovative building solutions for the 12-story Accor-NSGB 4-star hotel and office complex on an almost 6,000 square meter plot in Tahrir Square in downtown Cairo. The company will provide approximately 30,000 cubic meters of ready-mix concrete during the lifetime of the project.

“CEMEX is very proud to participate in this groundbreaking project on this historic site,” said Sergio Menendez, CEMEX President in Egypt. “Situated in the heart of Cairo, this complex will serve as a central gathering place for Egyptians and their visitors for years to come.”

Tahrir Square, located in the center of Egypt’s capital city, is a public transport hub and the site of myriad commercial, educational, and governmental buildings. A construction project of this magnitude in a crowded, bustling location, presents complicated logistical challenges for the delivery of building materials.

The initial stage of the project requires the company to cast a number of concrete foundations of up to 1,000 cubic meters apiece—each taking place every 15 days and requiring an average of approximately six hours to accomplish. CEMEX in Egypt has solved the logistical demands of the job with an innovative supply scheme which employs about 20 concrete trucks and two concrete pumps for each cast. In addition, CEMEX is closely monitoring the strict quality requirements of the concrete provided using not only an external laboratory, but also providing its specialized technicians on-site during each cast. Thanks to the planning and logistical solutions and meticulous quality control provided by CEMEX, this project is being executed on time and on schedule.

CEMEX develops innovative building solutions that keep the company and its customers at the forefront of the industry. From technical advice to custom-tailored products, the company helps clients build better, faster, safer, and more sustainable structures.
