Saudi Arabia

World's Tallest Flagpole

TIGHT DEADLINES WERE ESSENTIAL FOR THE SUCCESS OF THIS PROJECT

We are currently working on the foundation design for a world record breaking 170m Flagpole in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.  The flagpole will be located at a prominent location in Jeddah and we are working closely with our client Al Babtain Le Blanc to develop a robust foundation solution for the flagpole. 

The design of the foundations are especially challenging as they are located in a seismic zone and also the height of the flagpole means our design needs to be governed by the high wind and fatigue loads.

Having completed the supervision of the ground investigation, our detailed design is currently on track to ensure the delivery of this new Jeddah landmark in time for Saudi Arabia’s National Day on 23rd September 2013.
