ALMA RESORT construction update December 2016

With a hard-working spirit, ALMA’s construction team under the management of the Project Director Jorgen Juhl is working regardless of days and nights to bring ALMA’s dream into reality.

According to the original T-shaped design, ALMA resort appears majestically in the beauty of nature, embraced by sunshine and dreamy ocean. However, in order to ensure the splendid seaview from every apartment, the design was changed into V-shaped structure. During the last months, every member of the construction team including many architects and engineers from the US, Singapore and Vietnam have always paid a great attention to every detail of the project to make sure that all the steps are perfectly done. We believe that you deserve to have a luxury relaxing days with your beloved ones, like the way other families in the world have been experiencing for many years.

First steps in the construction of ALMA resort

Under the harsh weather, workers in the blue shirts are immersing themselves in the work, preparing for grading on site. 1,3m m3 soil was moved on the site. Original dune along the beach was lowered from +29m to +6m while the low level where our main building is located was lifted from +8m to +17m. Work transferred site level from its original conditions to resort design levels. The earthwork was our first major work on site to transfer a 30-ha-land into resort design levels condition.

Pile work

The next stage is constructing Piles. Piles is the deep foundation for our main buildings. Piles are casted in 22m dip drilled holes in the ground. More than 450 piles was installed on the lifted platform for main building. The total length of all the piles installed is 8.600meters. Prior to installing the actual piles, test piles was installed and loaded with massive weight in order to check settlement of piles was as per engineer’s specification.

Columns and First floor slab

After finishing the piles, the contractor continues with columns for the first floor slab. Steel is extended on top of pile cap to form the reinforcement of the columns. Metal formwork is then places to form the actual column and form will be casted with concrete during nighttime. Upon curing of the concrete, the form will be removed and finish column is exposed – Each block has 44 columns with a diameter of 950mm.

Upon completion of columns, a massive scaffolding is raised and formwork for the first floor slab is installed and filled with reinforcement prior to casting with concrete. The first floor slab is approximately 4000m2. Scaffolding and formwork is maintained for 28 days until the concrete has cured and obtained its maximum strength.

On top of first floor slab the massive 9m height columns is installed and casted. Proceed is same as basement columns but due to the height of the columns they are casted in two steps each 4,5m

After the 9m columns has been exposed on the first floor slab, the 9m height scaffolding is erected to carry the formwork for the second floor slab. We are in process of installing reinforcement and plan to cast the actual slab on December 16 and December 25. Upon completion of the second floor slab we will continue with guest unit floors and plan to reach 4th floor slab before we close for Tet holiday on January 20.

We have been troubled with heavy rain the last couple of days but now it cleared up. South-tower note the last 9m column in progress, cores are coming up in 3 steps. Beams nearly installed for the second floor slab and then to follow with steel for slab. Rain is forecasted to continue so December 16 casting is a few days out. North tower – note zone 1 is ready for casting and progress with steel cages for the last zone 5 – also note the first basement columns now in progress. General note the cut out in our platforms due to the heavy rain.
