Interiors tender for Dubai Mixed Use due soon
Last contract for residential, office and hotel project in six weeks
Arabian Construction Company (ACC) is planning to issue a tender for the interiors package of the Dubai Mixed Use project in Downtown Dubai within the next six weeks, according to the company.
Raed Khaled Khadijah, construction manager at the Lebanon-headquartered contractor that is the lead builder on the project, said the issue would coincide with the scheduled completion of the structure of what will be a 49-storey residential and office tower.
“It will be approximately in one-and-a-half months,” he said today. “It will be a package, including toiling work and some MEP work and some other things.” It is the last of the sub-contracts to be awarded.
The whole project also includes a 31-storey hotel next to the residential and office tower. The two structures share a five-storey podium, which connect to a seven-storey car park via two bridges as well as two tunnels that allow both access as well as services. KEO Consulting has been the consultant on the project, which has been in construction for the last three years, with PERI providing the formwork.
The hotel structure is currently frozen at five floors as ACC await the redesign for the structure from the client, originally due last year, according to Mohamad Hamze, project manager. These new designs are expected at the same time as the completion of the residential/office structure, which currently stands at 44 floors for the core wall.
