A Black Country based specialist construction firm is working on some of the largest building projects across the globe.
The project includes; road projects and huge bridge on the island of Qatar, a bus hub 14-storey high for the large number of pilgrims visiting Mecca and also a 30 mile bridge that will connect Macau with Hong Kong, all of which is being handled by experts, engineers from RMD Kwikform based in Aldridge.
From the Black Country, which is the headquarters of the construction firm, the company has operations worldwide, with new developments happening in the U.S., New Zealand, and Philippines, wherein the company is involved in the reconstruction of Canterbury after the 2011 earthquake.
RMD Kwikform is recognized as the one of the go-to companies in the world for formwork and false work–temporary structures that are used for molding of concrete and to support building work on construction plots worldwide.
At home, the firm is recognized for working on the Crossrail project in London and also for an award in the construction industry for working on the Stockley Viaduct flyover. Other than this, the company has also worked on a leisure complex Resort World at NEC in Birmingham.
But the company is more recognized for its projects carried overseas. The strategic planning and business development manager at RMD Kwikform stated that, the Middle East is an important region for the company. In particular, Qatar has been significantly important for infrastructure projects. Two big highway schemes, the North Road and East/west corridor were the most challenging and exciting projects that the company has accomplished.
The East Corridor Bypass at Doha has six bridges created with the use of thousands of tons of shoring and formwork from RMD Kwikform, which includes the tallest bridge in Qatar.
