Face Middle East have successfully completed the design and supervision of a 6,000m2 industrial flooring project in Dubai South.
Face Middle East have once again supported Al Avon General Contracting on a project requiring a high tolerance floor where both Defined and Free Movement flatness classifications were essential for the safe and efficient operation of the facility.
With a reputation as one of the market leaders in the design and construction of VNA warehouses, Al Avon’s mutual relationship with Face Middle East stretches back over a decade, with both parties bringing their expertise to the table for the ultimate benefit of the end user, a document storage services provider.
Face were on-site for each day of casting and also tested the previous days’ slab(s) for flatness compliance. Having Face on site ensured that performance was consistently monitored; the levels were accurate, the concrete mix quality and consistency was maintained, and that all good working practices were adhered to throughout the construction process each day.
Finally, everyone involved with the project can be assured that they have a design compliant floor that will perform for many years without issue. Face see the floor as the tabletop on which the entire warehouse operates. Without a “fit for purpose” floor, all other elements of the warehouse operation (racking, Materials Handling Equipment and in-aisle guidance systems) will not operate as intended and at their optimum levels.
