Sharjah Cement Factory was established in UAE in 1977 and it is the market leader in the production of its Portland cement and GGBS products. The clinker storage shed was build using Peikko's column connections.

The conventional construction method for these types of sheds is a steel structure, but in this case an alternative of precast concrete structure was proposed and successfully implemented. The design of the project included several unique features that were used for the first time in the industry, such as 52 m span precast post-tensioned rafters, 10,5 m span for purlins at roof, the use of HCS as vertical retaining walls (5,5 m in height) and last but not least; post-tensioned Peikko Connection solution between foundation and columns.
