Concrete construction in the Middle East present several challenges to the industry, starting by the demanding environmental conditions and spanning to the large-scale and fast-track construction demand. These challenges reflect several special considerations on the concrete practices. This presentation addresses these considerations in large-scale iconic projects across the Middle East. It takes as case studies two of the largest airport constructions in the region. This construction reached more than 6 million m3 of high-performance and colored concrete with a placing rate exceeding 15,000 m3 per day.
