Baghdad Athletic city which upon completion, will be Iraq’s biggest athletic city, consists of 60,000 seats stadium, four fully roofed training ground, four-star hotel, and landscaping and access routes inside the athletic city.
In order to increase efficiency and quality of coordinating different elements and aspects of this multi-discipline project, BP is utilizing integration management system (IMS) to monitor, evaluate, and control various elements of project. To achieve this goal and effective and efficient development of project, BP has consulted with several international companies and industry experts such as German company Werner Sobek and Canadian company NCK. Considering delivery method of project (EPC), in order to improve project quality and efficiency, design and field execution of the project were performed simultaneously. For instance, while execution sector was implementing designed piles, pile static load tests including axial compression and pile dynamic load tests (DLT/PDA), have been done to optimize the final geometry (length and diameter) of designed piles. To complete project goals, more than 177,000 m3 concrete and 30,000 tons of reinforcement rebar will be placed and 250,000 m3 of earth work shall be done.
