A subsidiary of Dubai-listed contractor Arabtec Holding has been awarded work on a twin-tower project at the Dubai Creek Harbour development.

Emirates Falcon Electromechanical (EFECO) was awarded the $30m mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) contract for the Creekside 18 project, being developed by the local Emaar Properties.

Earlier this year Dubai-based Al Naboodah was awarded the main construction contract.

The $140m Creekside 18 project will contain two 37-storey towers at the Dubai Creek Harbour development, and is expected to be completed by 2019.

Located in the Ras al-Khor area of Dubai, the Dubai Creek Harbour development will be home to the world’s tallest building, known as The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour. The development will also include other residential towers and a large retail centre that could be the world’s largest.

Emaar has appointed contractors to provide pre-construction services for the tall tower. It has also appointed contractors for the construction of various residential towers.

In May, MEED reported that a joint venture led by the local Wade Adams was awarded an estimated AED750m ($204m) contract to complete infrastructure at Dubai Creek Harbour.

Wade Adams and joint venture partner Cyprus-based Joannou & Paraskevaides (J&P) will complete infrastructure for the development’s Island District. The work is understood to include two bridges, associated roads, all services, and landscaping.

The consultant is US-based Parsons. The programme manager for the Dubai Creek Harbour Development is US-based Hill International.
