Dubai Sports City (DSC) has shortlisted two local/international joint ventures (JVs) for the main construction package on stadium S3, and has appointed consultants for its sewage treatment plant (STP) and designers for 75 villas.

The JVs shortlisted for S3 are: the local Arabtec Construction, with Germany's Max Boegl; and the local Emirates Bilbadi Contracting, with Austria's Alpine Bau. The local Transemirates Contracting Company with China State Construction Engineering Company was the only other bidder in December. The 25,000-capacity cricket stadium is one of three stadiums that will be built at DSC. The others are S1, the indoor stadium, and S4, a 60,000-capacity multipurpose stadium capable of hosting major international sporting events.

DSC has also selected the UK's Hyder as the consultant for the development's 25,000-cubic-metre-a-day STP, and a local/Turkish JV of QHC and ITD to design the 75 villas in the Gallery Villas district of the development. Lebanon's Khatib & Alami is the consultant for the road and infrastructure works; Australia's Clifton Coney Group is the project manager for the stadiums; and Germany's Architekten von Gerkan, Marg & Partners (GMP) is the architect and designer. DSC is being promoted by a group of local investors, Abdul Rahim al-Zarooni, Abdul Rahman Falaknaz and Abdul Rahman Bukhatir.
