Raqtan is a provider of comprehensive solutions for the food service industry. Their showrooms are a great example of how much civil and MEP work can go into a ‘simple’ interior project. In Jeddah, our team performed a quasi retro-fit, as the structure of the old building required maintenance and upgrades: from stripping-out works, moisture treatment, supply and installation of AHU and fresh air and exhaust fan units, to firefighting and alarm systems, to lighting and industrial electrical power systems for equipments. Not to mention the raised floors and special flooring systems (Flowcrete/Flowfast), porcelain tiles, carpet flooring, special grid ceiling, glazed partitions etc.
Havelock One was happy to go the extra mile for this project; we were flexible and on schedule. Challenges included the lack of complete tender drawings from the designer, which led to variation orders. Therefore, Raqtan entrusted us with a third project, their manufacturing facility in Dammam.
