Aldar invites groups to prequalify for Abu Dhabi water park project

14 June 2010

Water park will be located on Yas island

Local developer Aldar Properties has invited groups to prequalify for a contract to build a water park on Yas island.

The prequalification process has been initiated and construction work is due to start in July 2010.

UK-based Atkins has been appointed as the consultant for the 16.4 hectare water park project.

The project is scheduled for completion in 2012.

In April, Aldar awarded the local/UK Al-Futtaim Carillion an estimated AED120m ($32m) contract to build a new Ikea furniture store on Yas Island.

The 29,642 square metre retail outlet will be Ikea’s largest store in the Middle East. It will have a total sales area of 18,100 sq m, a 2,100 sq m restaurant with 600 seats, and a parking structure with 1,563 parking spaces.
