The iconic crossed-sword design tower in Qatar

With a unique architectural design inspired by the crossed scimitar swords of the country’s seal, the Katara Towers are set to become the future hospitality landmark of Doha, Qatar.

These 36-story twin arched towers will consist of a luxurious five-star hotel, the first six-star hotel in the country, and private residences.

A man-made satellite beach-front island will complement the project, housing luxury entertainment and recreational facilities.

For this iconic project, Dextra was entrusted with the reinforcement of the concrete structures using 300,000 Bartec rebar couplers.

The couplers were applied inside foundations, columns and core walls to swiftly connect reinforcement bars of various diameters.

Bartec is a parallel-thread rebar coupler that connects two bars in a 3-step process, including the cold-forged enlargement of the bar before the threading.

This patented process guarantees a very high tensile strength, and a bar-break performance.

The tower's completion is expected in 2021, becoming a focal point for travelers during the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
