Limak Construction, a part of leading Turkish conglomerate Limak Group, has reached a major project milestone by erecting the final shell cassette required for the inner roof of the Kuwait International Airport New Terminal 2 (T2) project.

Fabricated entirely on-site, the shell cassettes are a significant component of the terminal’s roof and the project’s objective to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold certification from the US Green Buildings Council, said the statement from Limak. 

The shell cassette moulds were constructed and assembled by Limak in Kuwait, and designed by Adapa, a Danish company specialised in mechanical innovation and computer-aided mould manufacturing. 

The design of the complex structure was undertaken by German-based firm Werner Sobek, while the roof’s construction methodology was handled by the Robert Bird Group, a member of one of the largest Asia-based urban, industrial, and infrastructure consulting firms.
