Group 3 soon to handover SinoGulf structure
Contractors reap benefits of speedy work on Abu Dhabi tower project
Group 3 Engineers Contractors is soon to handover the structure of the SinoGulf project in Abu Dhabi’s Capital Centre following a speedy completion of the two towers.
Last year CW visited the AED700m project when the twin structures were at 11 floors and the main contractor had reduced its time to complete each slab to seven days. The project comprises a 25-floor commercial tower and a 20-floor residential tower that sit atop a two-storey podium.
Today, the company’s construction manager said it was closing in to handover after recently finishing the final floor.
“We’ve now finished and will be shortly handing over the project, finishing one slab a week,” Mohammed Hussein Al-Ali said. “As main contractor we also finished all the MEP work for the towers.”
The fit-out for the towers is likely to be left to the operators of the buildings, it is believed.
SinoGulf – launched by client SinoGulf Investments in October 2007 is just one of 23 tower projects that will be executed in the Capital Centre, an upcoming business district at an early stage of overall development next to Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre in the capital.
Located in the corner of the Capital Centre, only around 20 metres away from Al Karama Street, the small amount of space available at ground level created a construction challenge, the contractors said last year.
Al-Ali said the company was currently on the hunt for further projects in Abu Dhabi.
