Atkins wins Masdar infrastructure concept design contract

13 May 2008
UK-based Atkins has been awarded the infrastructure concept design contract for the $22bn Masdar City project in Abu Dhabi.

The consultancy contract covers preliminary design work for the infrastructure on the 6.5-square-kilometre Masdar City.

An award is also due shortly for phase one of the building works on the Masdar Institute of Science & Technology, which has been planned as the world's first graduate university dedicated to renewable energy.

Masdar City is set to be completed by 2016, in conjunction with Abu Dhabi's 2030 Development Plan. It will eventually grow to accommodate 1,500 businesses and 50,000 residents (MEED 17:04:08).
