EXCLUSIVE: Firms prepare bids for Dubai Creek Harbour work

10 July 2017

Joint venture won first infrastructure package in May

Local developer Emaar Properties has invited contractors to submit prices by 13 July for another infrastructure package at the Dubai Creek Harbour development in Dubai.

The works involve building roads and installing general infrastructure for a mainland parcel of land at the development which is located in the Ras al-Khor area on the banks of Dubai Creek.

In May, a joint venture led by the local Wade Adams was awarded an estimated AED750m ($204m) contract to complete infrastructure for the Island District. That work is understood to include two bridges, associated roads, all services, and landscaping.

The infrastructure works for the Dubai Creek Harbour development had earlier been tendered as one contract estimated to be worth AED4bn-5bn but were later split into smaller packages.

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

Dubai Creek Harbour 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.

Emaar is co-developing Dubai Creek Harbour with Dubai Holding.
