In 2000, Bauer Egypt participated in the construction of the first underground car park in El-Tahrir Square (Omar Makram Car Park). Bauer Egypt’s scope was to install a soft gel grout plug as a groundwater control system to allow for excavating the site in dry conditions.

In 2002, Bauer Egypt started the second underground car park in El-Tahrir Square(Tahrir Car Park I) Bauer Egypt’s scope was to install a portion of the diaphragm walls but the construction works were postponed from 2003 to 2010 due to financial reasons.

By the end of 2010, works were resumed and Bauer Egypt was awarded a new contract for the installation of the soft gel grout plug and groundwater control.

 Scope of work:
