Peikko Group’s subsidiary in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Al Rashed Peikko LLC, has received a substantial order for its DELTABEAM® Slim Floor Structure to AMC Hospital for long-term patients, located in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The order comprises 2.2 kilometers of DELTABEAM® and other concrete connection items for the project. The deliveries started in January 2017 and will continue until summer.
The developer of the project is Anfas Medical Care, and the main contractor is Construction and Planning Co. Ltd. The structural and architectural design of the hospital was made by Arabtech Jardaneh and Partners for Engineering Consultancy / AJ Saudi. The precast elements for the project are supplied by AlRashid Abetong. The 25.000 m2 hospital building is estimated to be completed in 2018. This 120 bed hospital is intended for patients with chronic conditions requiring extended supportive clinical care and who are currently accommodated in highly acute intervention hospitals.
“The architectural design of the new hospital required a slim-floor structure, which was smoothly solved by using our DELTABEAM®. The use of DELTABEAM® and our concrete connections enabling a fast frame erection made it possible to maintain the very tight schedule of this project”, states Antti Rousku, General Manager of Al Rashed Peikko LLC.

DELTABEAM® is Peikko’s composite slim-floor system for multi-storey buildings of any kind. It allows flexibility for layout changes throughout the service life of the building, and enables easy HVAC installations. With the use of DELTABEAM® the depth of the whole structure can be reduced, which means savings in construction time and costs as well as in heating and cooling costs. DELTABEAM® enables different kinds of cantilevers and architecturally challenging façade solutions without the use of in-situ casting.
