The Ziplok 400 standing seam roofing ... used for Dubai's bus service station.

Rigidal Industries has added another feather to its cap by successfully providing a standing roof system for the new bus service station of the Dubai Municipality.

The main contractor, Amana Steel Buildings and Contracting, called upon Rigidal to provide 9,200 sq m of its Rigidal Ziplok 400 standing seam roofing system.
The project’s consultant was WS Atkins and Partners Overseas, which was instructed by the client to specify only the very best products for the new bus service station at Aweer, says Phil Ellerby, general manager of Rigidal Industries.
Like many of Dubai’s current projects, the supply time for the contract was extremely severe, requiring the workshops to be completed within eight weeks of order placement. This was to meet the transportation requirements of the IMF meeting that Dubai hosted during September, he says.
The project’s design called for nearly 2,000 curved sheets with an average length of 10 m to be produced at the site within 26 working days.
Rigidal Industries produced the materials in a short span of time while adhering to the project schedules.
It was the first time that Amana Steel had undertaken installation of Rigidal’s flagship Ziplok standing seam roofing system and its project manager and site personnel were trained on the intricacies of the installation at Rigidal’s workshop facility in Rashidiya. 
The installation of the material was successfully completed within the time schedule and the project handed over to Dubai Municipality on time.
“It was a pleasure to work on such a project with international design consultant WS Atkins, which clearly merits the reputation for excellence in construction design,” Ellerby adds.
