Bahrain International Circuit
Bahrain Asphalt (BA) has contributed to Bahrain International Circuit’s development in the pavement construction of 5,500 meters of Race Track, 1,500 meters of Service Roads and 2,500 meters of Test Oval and Pit Lanes. In 2004, BA has also contributed in the “Track Extension Works”. The company was contracted to design and reconstruct the Drag Race Track in 2010 and was accomplished as a fast track project in 2 months by continuous interlocking paving bricks using Concrete Interlocking paving bricks Train.
In addition, Bahrain Precast Concrete has designed, produced, delivered and erected approximately 12,000 m2 of pigmented wall cladding panels on the team and pit buildings and 2,100 m2 of grey panels at the multi-purpose building, around 31,000 m2 of bleachers (on which the spectator’s seating is mounted) at the grandstand and multipurpose building, 1,150 m2 solid slabs for the VIP tower, 6,490 m2 of colored concrete tiles at the VIP tower and 300 units of barriers. Rigorous load-testing was conducted to ensure that the bleachers can withstand the loads that they will be subjected to during the Grand Prix. Another challenge was the erection of some cladding panels which are inclined at seven degrees to the vertical facade incorporating window recesses and soffit panels.
Bahrain International Circuit is the race track situated in Sakhir in the Kingdom of Bahrain, where Bahrain’s international Formula 1 Grand Prix is held.
