Raimondi Middle East deployed eight cranes for the construction of Tiraz, eight residential buildings located within the fast-growing Aljada megaproject in Sharjah, the United Arab Emirates.  

Two Raimondi luffing jib cranes, five flat-top cranes, and one hammerhead have been deployed to work on the Tiraz buildings, which form part of Aljada’s creative district.

The cranes, all erected by Raimondi Middle East team members, comprise four MRT294-16tn, one MRT223-12t, one ER240-28t and two LR213-14t. All of the cranes are freestanding at heights ranging between 42m and 48m, with jib lengths ranging from 43m to 50m.

The cranes are scheduled to remain onsite for 18 months to build a complex of 920 smart houses alongside health clubs, swimming pools, play areas, and various green spaces.

“This latest machine rental represents a milestone in our relationship with the UAE developer Arada,” said Wael Hasan, commercial director, Raimondi Middle East. “With the installation of these eight additional Raimondi cranes, the total number of cranes currently operating at various sections of the city within the city is 31. This makes Aljada the biggest jobsite in the region for us.

“To date, we have helped Arada deliver 1,483 units, while we continue supporting the master developer in the construction of an additional 6,000 units across different jobsites.”
