Shegole and Kality Bus Depot Project


Shegole and Kality Bus Depot are two projects in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, with a total area of 15,000m2. EASE-CCL post tensioning system was incorporated at concept stage and was completed in June 2018.

We were approached by the owner, Pan Africa Real Estate, and their consultant Kenmos Engineering, to provide a solution for 10m spans between columns.

The owner, TPMO (Transport Programs Management Office) a governmental body, and their consultant ETG, approached us to provide a solution for the 9m spans between columns.

The columns were situated to maximize the office space, and the original solution included big drop beams. This would be costly to execute and is very time consuming.

We implemented the EASE-CCL system using a flat slab of 22cm and Drop Caps localized at columns. The client benefited in the following:

• A reduce in cost

• A reduce in slab depth.

• 67% less steel and 22% less concrete

• Flexibility of layout and services

• Increase in room height clearance

• Faster execution and easier method of construction

As a result of our competence, TPMO is adopting the EASE-CCL system in all their projects. For instance, the YEKA Parking project, also displayed on our website.
