BK Gulf wins Trump tower contract

14 August 2008

The local/ UK BK Gulf has been awarded the AED418m ($114m) mechanical, electrical and plumbing contract for the Trump International Hotel and tower project in Dubai.

The award follows the AED2.9bn ($790m) main construction contract being handed to the local/ South African joint venture of Al-Habtoor Engineering Enterprises and Murray & Roberts Contractors (Middle East) in June.

The tower, which will be one of the main landmarks on the reclaimed island, is being developed through a joint venture of Nakheel and the US' Trump Organisation.

The 48-storey building will have a 300-room hotel and 360 apartments. It will also have a viewing gallery and restaurants on the upper levels, and will form an archway straddling the Palm monorail system, which is under construction.

Australia's Bovis Lend Lease is the project manager for the development. The UK's Atkins is the consultant (MEED 4:6:08).
