Keserwan Coastal Area Water Supply Project – Keserwan, Lebanon

- Client: The Lebanese Government – Council of Development & Reconstruction
- Consultant: Dar El Handasah, Taleb & Partners
- Main Contractor: Al Tajj & Baresel
- Sub-Contractor: UCE
- Value: Total USD 36 Million – UCE’s portion: USD 3.6 Miliion

This project called for the construction and completion of Keserwan water supply network and reservoirs at the lower, mid and upper coastal areas.
UCE has been appointed by the main contractor for “special civil works”, namely the construction of 32 circular reservoir tanks with diameters ranging from 8m to 22m, the latter’s capacity being 3,000 cubic meter.

The challenge in the execution of this project was not only the 8.5m high concrete walls that should be poured uninterruptedly, but the parabolic cover of 12 cm thick that required exceptional techniques and know-how.
