EXCLUSIVE: Contractor awarded Dubai Creek Harbour infrastructure

24 May 2017

Joint venture will complete works on the Island District

A joint venture led by the local Wade Adams has been 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.

Contractors submitted revised offers for the infrastructure work at Dubai Creek Harbour January.

It was originally expected that Emaar would award a much larger contract, estimated to be worth AED4-5bn, for the entire development. These plans have been scaled back with the first infrastructure works focusing on the Island District.

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, 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.
