The new Al Thuraya Tower in Doha, Qatar is a building project in West Bay, the city’s commercial centre located at the sea. With a total area of 45,000 m², the building has 3 basement levels and 42 floors above the surface, offering room for 292 hotel apartments and 375 parking spaces.
Thanks to its special architecture and aesthetics, the Al Thuraya Tower is a new landmark in Doha’s skyline.
The post-tensioning of all flat slabs using a flat anchor system resulted in considerable weight savings and rapid construction progress. The easy assembly on site makes extraordinary structures with a high security standard possible.
A total of 203 t of strand was required for the bonded strand tendons with flat anchorages that were installed in the flat slabs of the Al Thuraya Tower.
