The AUC new campus project is considered to be the largest construction project in Egypt in the past decade since it was executed on a total land area of 1,000,000m2. Samcrete Engineers and Contractors SE&C was proud to be selected to perform all of the construction and electromechanical work in partnership with Samsung. Each building includes a basement, ground, and typical 3 floors. The Buildings consist of isolated RC foundations, RC concrete skeletons, and very high-standard finishing, such as mechanical fix stone facades and marble, ceramic, and gypsum board finishing in the interiors. The electromechanical system consists of central HVAC, central chilled water plant, plumbing, fire fighting system, M V, L V system “including transformers MRU”, a backup generator, all lighting, and low current systems such as fire alarm and telephone. 2003 Samcrete begins infrastructure works on The American University in Cairo campus. Two years later it wins the contract for the main campus and begins construction. 2009 The American University in Cairo opens its new campus, constructed by Samsung and Samcrete. The AUC new campus development project is considered to be the largest construction project in Egypt in the last decade. This project was executed in partnership with Samsung on a total land area of 1,000,000m². The work comprised of complete 11 groups of buildings (parcels) in a turnkey bases, with a total build up area of 250,000m². The sprawling facility was said to be Egypt’s largest construction project in recent years. Tens of thousands of Egyptian workers were employed. 24,000 tons of steel and 15,000 square meters of stone cladding were used. More sand stone is thought to have been used during its construction than any other development in Egypt since the building of the pyramids. Like the iconic tombs in their day, the sandstones were transported in 30-ton chunks from Kom Ombo then cut into pieces on-site. The project was carried out in partnership with Samsung, a Korean contracting firm that presented new cultural challenges as they adjusted to strict working habits & standards and hence more challenge to the overall job. At last, the project incubated leadership within Samcrete & prepared our engineering division for a new era in international development. SE&C was awarded for several safety excellence awards for accomplishing great number of hours of safe work without a lost workday case. These awards were granted during the new Kuwaiti diplomatic headquarters project and the AUC new campus project. The company also received the Egyptian Federation certificate as a grade A general contracting company.

The electro mechanical works consists of central HVAC connected to central chilled water plant, plumbing, fire fighting system, M V, L V system including transformers MRU, pack up generator, all lighting and low current system such as fire alarm, telephone.
