GSFMO Head House Expansion
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
This US$89 million expansion project included expansion of the Jeddah mills facility’s head houses that are used to manage the silos (total current silo capacity is 140,000 metric tons).
Located only 50 m (165 feet) from the Red Sea shore, both of the head houses needed a completely impermeable concrete matrix for their below-ground foundations, each about 20 m (65 feet) deep. PENETRON ADMIX was added to the concrete mix to waterproof the concrete.
