Kingspan Access Floors has gained one of its largest ever orders in the Middle East – to supply nearly 44,000 sq m of panels to a 45-storey office tower being built in Kuwait City.
 
The order for the Burj Alshaya Centre was placed directly by the developers, the Alshaya Group, after Kingspan was initially approached by the London office of their design consultants, Gensler.
 
As part of the process to gain the work, the Alshaya Group asked Kingspan to provide 1100 sq m of panels last year so that a complete floor could be installed, enabling them to see the quality at first hand. That flooring is now part of the overall project and the remaining panels are being shipped in three phases, during August 2016, November 2016 and February 2017.
 
Thomas Koshy, Kingspan’s Regional Manager in the Middle East, said: “As the UK’s leading raised flooring manufacturer we were able to give the Alshaya Group the reassurance that we can supply the product in batches of 11,000 sq m in just 10 days ex works. This will enable them to complete 10 floors with each of the first two shipments, with a larger shipment to complete the order.”
 
Kingspan is supplying approx 35,400 sq m of RMG 600 panels for the office areas and 8,500 sq m of heavier grade DRF 600 to take the weight of a stone finish in the corridors and reception area.
 
The Burj Alshaya project comprises three distinct buildings – the commercial tower, a 23-storey hotel and a podium.
