Dubai-based Nakheel has awarded three contracts totalling more than AED41m ($11.2m) for its Al Furjan and Warsan Village communities.

Two of the newly-awarded contracts cover infrastructure design and supervision for hundreds of third party villa and mixed-use plots at a new phase of Al Furjan. Dubai-based Arif & Bintoak received one of the contracts, valued at AED13.6m, while Lebanon’s Dar Al Handasah was issued the second contract, worth AED2.9m.

Al Furjan’s new phase covers more than 1.2 million square metres, and includes over 500 third party villa plots and more than 30 mixed-use plots already sold by Nakheel. The first phase of the project, containing 800 homes, is already complete.

Nakheel has also awarded a contract for AED24.6 million to Dubai-based international architects AE7 for design and supervision work at Warsan Village. Launched in September last year, Warsan Village is a gated community spanning 47.5 hectares, with 942 townhomes, 250 apartments, a retail plaza, mosque and recreation centre. Construction of the project is out to tender, with proposals due this month.
