Dubai, UAE-Solico Skylights, the GCC manufacturer and installer of challenging metal framed skylights was awarded the contract of Al Naeem Mall , Ras Al Khaimah by Strabag LLC.
SOLICO was awarded the contract for design, manufacture and installation of a 75 m long by 22 m wide and 5.4 m high, Barrel Vault Skylight for the Al Naeem Mall at Ras Al Khaimah by the Worldwide Internationally renowned company Strabag LLC.
This job project came with numerous challenges which included a “Fast Track Delivery Schedule” requiring some innovative engineering with an alternative to the provision of scaffolding due to the lack of space for clearance to install the scaffolding. The engineered solution was to build a hanging gantry to install the self supported aluminium structure spanning over 75 meters in length using 10 “ rafters in record time, only 2 months!
The skylight was designed with a mechanically operated internal gantry for ease of maintenance and cleaning as well as windows for opening in the event of a fire for ventilation and extraction of smoke.
