Today we wish to look back on one of the most outstanding projects we have had the pleasure to be a part of: the Haramain High Speed Rail connecting the holy cities of Mecca and Medina. It was an engineering adventure and a testament to international collaboration. This project was not only a challenge in engineering and design but also an opportunity to bring our technical flooring solutions to the heart of Saudi Arabia.
When the Haramain High Speed Rail was inaugurated, it set a precedent in international cooperation, merging the excellence of Spanish engineering with the future vision of Saudi Arabia. At POLYGROUP, we contributed our expertise and dedication alongside the team from DAR Al-Handasah, meeting the demands of a unique environment due to its climate and cultural and religious significance.
Innovation and Functionality in Raised Access Floor
Our contribution focused on the implementation of advanced GAMAFLOR PAC raised access floor systems, known for their adaptability and resistance to intensive use:
- With GAMAFLOR PAC 30/05/05, we provided a robust solution for technical and control rooms, where precision and durability are essential.
- GAMAFLOR PAC 35/05/05 was specially designed with dimensions of 750x750mm to optimize accessibility and cable management. The 30mm thick granite panels were tailored to meet the demands of heavy traffic, symbolizing the union of aesthetics and functionality.
One of the most notable features was the implementation of large-size granite coating panels (1500x750mm), which were shipped and assembled on-site to facilitate accessibility and allow for future reconfigurations of space. This modular approach ensured that our technical flooring solutions were not only aesthetically pleasing but also fully functional and adaptable to potential changes.
A Commitment to Sustainability
This project reflects our commitment to creating spaces that endure and maintain their functionality and aesthetics over time. POLYGROUP’s GAMAFLOR PAC systems are designed to withstand high traffic and constant activity, ensuring a long lifespan and efficient maintenance, which is crucial in such large-scale infrastructure.
We look back with satisfaction at the Haramain High Speed Rail, a project that not only challenged us to exceed our technical expectations but also aligns with Saudi Arabia’s sustainability and progress goals towards 2030.
At POLYGROUP, we remain committed to excellence and innovation in every project, and the Haramain High Speed Rail is a clear example of the lasting impact of our work.
