The Faculty of Medicine located in the city of Sidi M'hamed in Algiers province in the last few years has been facing the issue of limited space for the steadily increasing number of students. There was a need for new larger premises to improve the studying conditions. The official start of the construction was April 2008 and the project was just completed to welcome students and university techers at the start of this academic year in October 2013.
The whole project covers an area of nearly 70,000 sqm. A two-layer waterproofing system was installed by ACAS company on the area of 30,000 square meters, which means that in total over 60,000 sqm of Siplast-Icopal products were applied on site.
The waterproofing system used for this project included:
This new impressive building complex comprising lecture rooms, a library, auditorium, administrative buildings and also a canteen is an education centre for the departments of medicine, pharmacy and dentistry and can accommodate 10,000 students and teachers, providing them with perfect conditions for work and studies.
