A construction project in Sharjah has achieved a world record for the longest continuous pour of concrete, which lasted for 62 hours.

The Guinness World Record was achieved at the construction site of Safari Mall project, located in Mleiha commercial area. The project is being developed by Mazaya engineers consultants at a cost of Dh250 million.

As many as 622 labourers worked in multiple shifts to pour 20.246 cubic metres of concrete and a total of 4,600 tonnes of steel was used. The concrete pouring was carried out by ConMix by installing 12 concrete pumps at the site.

Addressing a ceremony to celebrate the achievement, Thabit Salim Al Taraifi, director-general of the Sharjah Municipality, said that he presented the achievement to His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, who managed with his vision and wise guidance to put the emirate in the ranks of international cities. He added that the world record for the largest continuous concrete pour in construction is an additional achievement to Sharjah, which is known as the emirate of knowledge, culture and education.

Khalifa bin Hadah Al Suwaidi, assistant general manager of the engineering and building sector at the municipality, said that the high rate of construction growth in Sharjah has a significant impact on the economic development witnessed by the emirate. 

He added that the Safari Mall project is a commercial centre consisting of two floors. Observers from the Guinness World Records attended the concrete process, which started on April 13 and continued until 4am on April 16.
