A group of 40 students from the Civil Engineering Dept. at Fahad Bin Sultan University accompanied by Dr. Abdulsamee Halahla visited on Thursday, November 19, 2015 Abdeen Concrete Factory in Tabuk. The visit started by a short meeting between Dr. Halahla and Mr. Tariq Abdeen, the Factory owner. Mr. Abdeen welcomed the visit and gave a brief description about the factory, its products, capacity and future plans.
Afterwards, the group visited the Factory Control Room where it was briefed about its work and how the whole manufacturing process is monitored and the actions taken in case anything goes wrong. Then, the group was taken on a field trip to different parts of the Factory where it was briefed by the Factory staff about the different stages undertaken for manufacturing concrete, tiles, curbs, and interlocks, in addition to the various tests done on the products in the Factory lab in order to ensure that they satisfy national standards.
The field trip ended with Dr. Halahla thanking on behalf of the students and the Department of Civil Engineering Mr. Tariq Abdeen for the opportunity given to students to see closely the manufacturing process involved in their field of study.
