Client: American International Contractors Inc (AICI)
Value: $2.5m USD
Contract: USAF Al-Udeid Air Base, Qatar
Scope of Works: Close airfield support apron and taxiway link

Gill Civil Roads Contracting LLC were employed as specialist sub-contractor to provide a slipform paving train to pave 95,000 square metres of Close Airfield Support apron and associated taxiway link to the main runway at Al Udeid air base.

We mobilised and commissioned the paving train to Qatar, comprising Gomaco 9500 Concrete Placer, GHP2800 Slipform Paver and TCM-600 Texture-Cure Machine.

Pavement thickness was 615mm (thickening to 770mm in edge bays) of PQC on an un-bound sub-base.

To ensure that the very tight tolerances of the US Corps of Engineers Specification were met, the very thick pavement was laid between steel road forms to eliminate edge slump.

We are proud to say that we won a formal award from USACE for the outstanding quality of our works.
