Lagoon contracts let

04 August 2006

The local Ahmed Mansour Al-A'Ali with Singapore's BPL has received a letter of intent (LoI) for the main construction package on the $86 million The Lagoon project, part of the Amwaj Islands development off the coast of Muharraq. The scheme calls for the construction of eight low-rise buildings housing restaurants and retail outlets over an area of 600,000 square metres. It will also entail the building of a 1 kilometre-long walkway encircling the central lagoon. A joint venture of India's Simplex Concrete Piles and the local Almoayed Consulting Engineers is carrying out piling work, which is due to take 12 weeks. Overall completion is scheduled for June 2007.

The recently formed local Meena Projects is the project manager; Abu Dhabi Investment House is the client (MEED 21:4:06).
