RMD Kwikform helps Mall of Egypt take shape

10 Jul 14 Besix Orascom JV is building the Mall of Egypt using formwork and shoring supplied by RMD Kwikform.

The 162,500m2, two-storey structure, which is due to open in September 2015, will house both retail and leisure facilities, with 400 shops and 50 food and beverage outlets set to be joined by a ski park and provision for 6,500 car parking spaces.

The Mall of Egypt is twinned with the Mall of the Emirates in Dubai, a project also worked on by RMD Kwikform.

Faced with a tight programme time and the need to overcome design challenges within the build, the Besix Orascom JV site team worked with RMD Kwikform designers in its Dubai office to create drawings and plans for the Ski Park part of the project. Critical to the planning phase was the identification of the right levels of equipment needed for the project, as Besix Orascom JV opted to purchase the complete solution. 

A total of 1,300t of standard equipment has been supplied for the project, sourced from across the Middle East region.
