$52m Bawabat Al Sharq contract awarded
Phase II construction contract awarded to Royal International
A $52million construction contract for the second phase of the Bawabat Al Sharq project in Abu Dhabi has been awarded to Royal International Construction LLC by Baniyas Investment & Development Company (BID), the investment arm of Bani Yas Sports Club.
Aside from the construction contract, the enabling and backfilling works on Phase II, which consists of 129 villas and 14 apartment blocks, have already been awarded to Bauer International LLC.
Bauer has mobilised on-site and commenced its works on the project, which will be handed over to the owners towards the end of this year.
Covering over 108ha of land in Baniyas City, the $820million Bawabat Al Sharq project is a mix of residential, retail, entertainment and sporting facilities.
The project comprises premium apartments, villas, healthcare facilities, an international school, a FIFA-standard football stadium with a seating capacity of more than 20,000 spectators and a distinctive mall that will include 339 high-profile retail outlets as well as the distinctive traditional souk, Souk Al Megnas.
“After the completion of Phase I of Bawabat Al Sharq, we are delighted to award the contract for the second phase to Royal International Construction Company,” said Baniyas CEO Wael Tawil.
“Bawabat Al Sharq reflects the rich heritage and culture of Baniyas City,” said Royal International CEO Mahmoud Khaled.
In December last year, the Al Jaber Group won a $55.8million infrastructure contract for all three phases of the project.
