Nshama has awarded two contracts for its Rawda Residence project located in the Town Square development in Dubai, a senior official has revealed.

The main contract for the project was awarded to Engineering Contracting Co. (ECC) with construction commencing next month, Fred Durie, chief executive officer of Nshama told Construction Week.

Excavation, shoring, and piling works have been awarded to Dutch Foundation and Concrete Processing Co. LLC with work already in progress, Durie said.

“[Construction] should start next month, with the enabling works, shoring and excavation already started,” he said.

Rawda is a four-building residential project featuring one-, two-, and three-bedroom units set for a Q4 2019 completion date.

Durie also gave updates on the Town Square project, which currently has several neighbourhoods in different phases of completion.

“We are about to award the final infrastructure package for major roads and services, which is between two companies at the moment, but will be awarded [soon},” he said.

Durie added that work on the development’s retail and entertainment components, including the Vida Hotel, will begin in the next couple of years.

Nshama has handed over the first 320 units in September with the Zahra town houses and has completed all infrastructure works and landscaping for the project.

“It’s been a challenge, but we have had good contractors. The finished project is really good and the first 26 families have already moved in, so it’s starting to feel like a community,” he said.
