ABU DHABI, UAE, November 9, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Gulf Precast is a UAE leader in Precast Manufacturing, with 6 factories in the Abu Dhabi and Dubai Emirates. In October 2010, it recorded a production of 25,772 M3 of precast concrete, its highest figure since 1984, date of the company's creation.
This is a clear indication that, despite the economic crisis, the UAE Construction Industry is increasingly opting for the Quality that Precast solutions offer.
Like the rest of the UAE Construction Industry, Gulf Precast was affected in the beginning of 2009 by the Crisis. Many of its projects got cancelled, leading to a drop of three quarters of its production. By the end of 2009, a number of projects started or restarted, mostly in the Abu Dhabi Emirate. Following a new trend in the Real Estate market, Developers began opting for Quality and Value-For-Money construction, and Precast Manufacturing was therefore the logical option.
The strong reputation for Quality of Gulf Precast, which was one of the first UAE construction companies to obtain ISO certification back in 1997 and has won several governmental awards for Total Quality Management, ensured that it was the option of choice for quality conscious Contractors. Among others, Gulf Precast is performing a 2022 villas project in the Al Falah area (handing over an average of 4 villas per day), 21 residential buildings in Ruwais, a Boundary Wall of 187 kilometers, as well as several hotels and schools.
Precast concrete is manufactured in a controlled factory environment, under strict quality assurance and quality control. Concrete elements are inspected and tested throughout the production process, and then placed on trucks to be delivered to sites. There, the elements are assembled to form walls, floors and roofs. Gulf Precast has performed prestigious projects, such as the Dubai Mall or Al Wahda Mall in Abu Dhabi, Jumeirah Beach Residence towers, Al Murooj Hotel, the Sorbonne University on Reem Island, Zayed University, the Abu Dhabi airport Etihad terminal or the Dubai airport tunnel.
Commenting on this success, Elias Seraphim, Chief Executive Officer of Gulf Precast said; "The first companies that benefit from an economic recovery, are those which can offer a competitive edge that attracts demanding end users amongst an extensive choice. By focusing on Quality, Gulf Precast participates in the UAE economy's revival wave."
