Semir Apt Bldg Project


Semir Apartment Building is a Ground+9 Residential Project in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, with a total area of 5,000m2. EASE-CCL’s Post-Tensioning System was incorporated at concept stage.

Our client, and their consultant, Kenmos Engineering, inquired our Specialized Engineering Services to provide a solution for the 5.5m spans between columns. The original solution included Big Drop Beams of 50cm in both directions.

The reduction of steel is crucial in the Ethiopian market. Since steel prices are extremely high and availability is scarce, consumers will incur a waste of valuable time waiting on materials and large expenses.

To decrease our client’s costs, EASE-CCL solutions reduced the following:

• Slab depth

• Steel by 58%

• Concrete by 10%

• Execution Time

By using a flat slab of 18cm, a height reduction of 3.2m for the whole building was achieved. This created the possibility for an additional floor to the building’s plan.
