Notable Projects[edit]

Rehabilitation of Asseyedah Fatimah Mosque[edit]

Location: Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

The mosque was constructed 20 years ago, the reinforced concrete structure had severely deteriorated as a result of reinforcing steel corrosion in a highly aggressive environment. Fosroc Corrosion Solutions (FCS) technology was endorsed by the client as the right solution for the corrosion problem. The solution was designed to prevent future corrosion potentials and in turn, eliminate the need for future maintenance.[2]

Burj Al Arab[edit]

Location: Dubai, UAE

Al Gurg Fosroc was required to work hand in hand with the contractors and other project consultants to identify the best product combinations that would provide optimal performance in difficult circumstances. The Burj Al Arab is the world's tallest hotel, constructed on a man-made island, surrounded by a seawater environment. Amongst a myriad of construction challenges, careful consideration needed to be given in the selection of concrete admixtures and products to provide comprehensive solutions in key areas such as waterproofing and pile heads.[3][4]
