The facade cladding of Kuwait University is more than halfway done
The team behind the Kuwait University project has already completed 56% of the construction process by employing the BILDA facade cladding system.
Project volume and materials
BILDA technology was adopted for furnishing four separate buildings of the University Campus, the total facade cladding of which is estimated to be approximately 70,000 square meters. These buildings are as following:
● The Athletic Recreation and Aquatic Center for Men
● The Athletic Recreation and Aquatic Center for Women
● The Athletic and Recreational Facility East – Men’s
● The Athletic and Recreational Facility East – Women’s
The facade cladding material used for completing the structures is a 4 cm Bateig Limestone.
Specifics of the project
The most unusual and challenging aspect of this project is that the façades of the buildings are inclined at different angles. You can examine further details of the facade cladding process, as captured in the photographs provided below.
