This state-of-the-art high density storage facility is the single largest warehouse construction within the Jebel Ali Free Zone. The facility consists of the warehouse itself, a regional office building, a canteen block as well as other service amenities.
The project required over 3,500 tons of structural steel, 100,000 square meters of cladding and 20,000 cubic meters of concrete. The warehouse facility is equipped with a sophisticated fire fighting system with a sprinkler grid, involving 120km of piping â€“ equal to the distance between Jebel Ali and Abu Dhabi.
Storage within the warehouse is based on a Very Narrow Aisle (VNA) racking system stretching up to a height of over 14 meters. Given the weight of the goods and the time-sensitivity of the project, Amana implemented Laser Screed technology during the construction. Laser Screed is an innovative concrete slab technology which is comparatively quicker, high-strength, ultra-durable and safer than conventional reinforcement.
