Azizi Developments has signed an agreement with leading formwork and scaffolding company Doka for the manufacture and supply of formwork systems for its skyscraper project on the prestigious Sheikh Zayed Road, in Dubai. The tower, which according to Azizi will be the second tallest in the world, is scheduled to be completed within four years (the exact height will be announced at a later date). It will feature a vertical shopping mall, luxury residences and opulent penthouses, a 7-star hotel, a unique observation deck and numerous high-end F&B options, among other unique and exciting features and amenities.

At the signing ceremony in mid-February, CEO Farhad Azizi commented: “This agreement is a testament to our commitment to procuring and partnering with only the very best, and aligns perfectly with our pursuit of delivering sustainable, innovative, high-quality, world-class developments that enrich lives for generations to come. Collaborating with Doka allows us to ensure premium construction quality for these unique developments.”

Speaking about the partnership, Doka CEO Robert Hauser said: “It’s a privilege to partner with one of the most prestigious global developers, Azizi, on this outstanding project. We are delighted that Doka has once again the opportunity to demonstrate its broad experience in the high-rise sector. Only highly experienced formwork experts can provide the right answers to the challenges of this project, from planning and engineering to operational excellence in execution.”

Tailored solutions for record-breaking heights
Doka has a broad portfolio of solutions for the super high-rise segment, and therefore is able to tailor solutions to requirements. Because the tower will be built on the prestigious Sheikh Zayed Road, the project team faces the challenges of working in limited on-site space. These challenges will be solved by Doka's in-house workshop in Dubai designing strategically pre-assembled formwork and platform elements. These custom solutions met the client's requirements for speed, technical precision and adherence to site specifications while effectively managing the space limitations.

The project will benefit from Doka's expertise in providing turnkey formwork solutions, including climbing systems for core walls, climbing systems for mega columns, protection screens, slab formwork, table lifting systems, loading platforms, and slab edge protection. By implementing a comprehensive approach to each individual project, Doka successfully minimizes interference between project teams and ensures a smoother and more efficient construction process. Doka’s site-specific and unique solutions master the challenges of building concrete structures to record-breaking heights.

Forming success in the region
For over 45 years, Doka has been a reliable partner to the construction industry the Middle East, being strategically positioned with presence in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait and Bahrain. The robust setup in Dubai, including engineering and a highly skilled on-site-team, ensures swift response to changing on-site requirements. Doka's local team can pre-assemble and instantly deliver formwork solutions backed by a 50,000 m2 logistics center in Dubai and warehouses in neighboring countries. Numerous flagship projects in the Middle East have been built with formwork solutions from Doka. The company’s longstanding experience with super high-rise projects, particularly in the UAE, includes the Burj Khalifa and Marina 101. The Azizi Tower will soon be a new landmark for Doka and the entire region.
