King Abdullah Financial District

King Abdullah Financial District

King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD) is a multipurpose business and residential complex located in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The district consists of more than 50 towers and should ultimately host a working population of around 12,000 inhabitants.

Dextra Middle-East, also located in Dubai, has been involved from2009 for the supply of several building packages to Saudi Bin Ladin Group, the main contractor on the project.

Foundations piles

In order to provide vertical connection in foundation piles, Dextra supplied through its partners fabricators its popular Bartec rebar coupler solution, the #1 rebar splicing solution in the Middle East.

As a complement to Bartec couplers, Dextra also supplied Unitec couplers, which were used for the continuation of bars protruding from the foundation piles. Unitec is a flexible solution for contractors as the bar end doesn’t need to be prepared in advance. It only requires an impact wrench and therefore it is easy to operate on remote building sites.

Raft and Columns

Bartec couplers were also used for the horizontal connection in the thick foundation rafts, and vertically in the protruding columns.

Corewall-to-beam applications

In the building superstructure, Dextra Bartec couplers were used to provide horizontal connection from the corewall, allowing to insert the second phase starter bars needed to create the beam reinforcement.
