Central Fruit and Vegetable Market Of Tehran

Client: Engineering and Development Organization of Tehran
Consulting Engineers: Gueno
Commencement Date: 1991 & 1993 Location: Tehran, Iran

Project Outline
Tehran’s old fruit and vegetable markets were mostly situated in populated areas, thus creating numerous health hazards and traffic problems for local residents. To overcome these problems, it was decided to build a modern, well-equipped central market outside of city limits. However, building a project of such vast proportions, involving extremely diverse tasks and, in many cases, requiring simultaneous design and construction, called for considerable logistical, material and human resources as well as organizational flexibility. To keep the project on time, Kayson set up a prefabrication workshop right on site, built storage facilities for fuel and building materials, and mobilized a large number of plants and equipment.
