Raimondi deploys tower cranes for UAE student housing project

SHARJAH, December 23, 2021

Raimondi Middle East, a leading manufacturer of topless and luffing cranes, has deployed seven cranes - five MRT294s and two ER240s - for the construction of Nest, an integrated student complex within the Aljada megaproject in Sharjah.
Developed by Sharjah-based group Arada, Aljada is one of the largest and most complex jobsites in the region, with a number of different residential, retail, hospitality, entertainment, commercial, education and healthcare components.
Located within the Aljada masterplan, Nest consists of 12 five-storey apartment blocks over a 388,000 sq ft area. 
Nest’s list of facilities includes an art studio, a music hall, a library, a running track that surrounds the complex, an amphitheater and a central dining hall, as well as swimming pools, gyms, and study areas.
Just a short walk from the University City of Sharjah, one of the largest education hubs in the region, it is  scheduled for completion by the end of 2022.
On the key deployment, Wael Hasan, Commercial Director, Raimondi Middle East, said: "Our relationship with Arada continues to grow with this latest machine rental. We are pleased to supply Arada with five MRT294 flattop tower cranes and two ER240 hammerheads; all with good lifting capabilities, that more than meet the needs of the build onsite at Aljada."
Erected earlier in the year, the MRT294s 16tn are all freestanding at heights ranging from 37m to 53.1m with jib lengths ranging between 46m and 50m. 
"The MRT294 flattop remains one of the bestselling models in the region due to its maximum lifting capacity of 16tn and its durability in challenging climate conditions of extreme heat," stated Hasan. 
The two ER240 hammerhead cranes, chosen for the model’s 14tn maximum lifting capacity, are both at work with 50m jib and height under the hook (HUH) of 35.4m and 37m respectively, he added.

"Due to the number of cranes involved in the project, Raimondi Middle East carefully studied the positioning and the erection procedures of each machine. In addition, to ensure excellent after sales service, our technical department continues to support Arada jobsites with regular maintenance and periodic checkups," he stated. 
"We are delighted to play a key role in the construction of Sharjah’s new mega-city. Currently, we have 24 Raimondi tower cranes actively at work on Arada’s jobsites," added Hasan.-TradeArabia News Service
