Project technical challenges

The main contractor, Urban Landscape, was notably impressed by CHRYSO’s previous BetonCire work, which led to their confidence in CHRYSO’s capabilities for The Outpost Al Barari project. For this venture, CHRYSO delivered a custom “Café Crème Light” shade, using the pigment “Terre Ombre Chypre Natural,” which perfectly complements the desert rose color representative of Qatar’s rich natural landscape.
