The 10,008-unit residential housing Project in Venezuela,
executed as an EPC contract in three townships is Kayson’s second big export of
technical and engineering services to this country.
includes construction of two or three bedroom apartments in 4-story
blocks via the industrialized mass-housing construction method called
"Cast-in-Situ Monolithic Reinforced Concrete Construction System".
also encompasses construction of facilities such as network of water and gas
piping, surface water and sewerage collection, landscaping, streets and access
roads within the townships, open parking lots and green spaces as well as
auxiliary buildings (schools, clinics, libraries and etc).
The total land area
of this project is 208 hectares of which, 42, 78 & 88 hectares are allocated to
Better performance and greater protection against natural
disasters especially earthquake, higher speed of construction and long
durability are considered as advantages of this mass-housing construction
The technology used in this method was achieved by combining advanced
construction methods and Kayson’s experience of its previous project in
Venezuela. It is expected that via this industrial method, Kayson will reach the
average construction speed of one residential unit per 20 minutes.
Due to being
industrial, the new construction method provides for better programming and
controlling over engineering, procurement and construction of the project
compared to the usual methods. High quality of work and production are
considered as other advantages of this method. Kayson’s Success in fulfilling
the previous project in Venezuela provoked a sense of appreciation in Iranian
and Venezuelan officials, as well as the latter’s public media and paved the way
for the new project contract.
In each site, over 60,000 square meters of land
was used for auxiliary buildings which were built beside residential buildings.
Regarding the local situations, their construction was done in usual methods.
The facilities which encompassed all the required buildings needed for a
township resulted in partial independence of the townships.
Scope of work
project's scope of work involves design, procurement and construction of the
- Residential Buildings: There were 10,008 units in three townships,
consisting 2520, 3456 and 4032 units of 4-story apartment blocks, 66% of which
conclude three and 34% have two bedrooms. The buildings were designed according
to Venezuela’s climatic conditions and were constructed using "Cast-in-Situ
Monolithic Reinforced Concrete Construction System.
- Auxiliary Buildings: For
improving public welfare of township resident, about 60,000 square meters of
land was allocated to construction of all needed auxiliary buildings, such as
schools with different grade configurations, kindergarten and nursery school,
library, gym, outdoor sport lands, health & medical clinics and etc.
- Infrastructures and landscaping: The entire networks of gas piping, water,
sewerage collection, the network for collecting surface water from the
surroundings of townships, telephone wiring, electrical cabling, lighting of
surroundings, as well as landscaping, streets, parking lots and green spaces
were the facilities constructed for this project.
