Beijing-based China State Construction Engineering Corporation (CSCEC) has been awarded a AED430m ($117m) contract for construction at the Deira waterfront development in Dubai.

The contract covers phase 1 plots 9 and 10 of the project, and includes structural, mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP), fit out, landscaping and other related external auxiliary works.

Last year, the local Beaver Gulf was awarded a contract for work on plots 5, 7 and 8 of the Deira waterfront development.

The overall scheme involves developing 5 kilometres of waterfront along the Deira Corniche facing Nakheel’s offshore Deira Islands project.

The project includes hotels, retail space, and food and beverage outlets.

There will also be civic components such as plazas, parks, bicycle routes and transportation hubs.

The project client is Deira Waterfront Development, which is an affiliate of the Investment Corporation of Dubai (ICD).
