A statement from Sama Dubai said: "It is with profound grief and sorrow that Sama Dubai announces the sudden passing away of its dear employee, Peter Nikolaou.

"Peter passed away unexpectedly and peacefully in the early hours of 19 September, as a result of a heart attack. Peter led Sama Dubai's The Lagoons project as senior executive director diligently and with passion for the past two years. His team will always remember him fondly as he was admired for his lively personality and charisma."

A minute of silence was observed across all offices of Sama Dubai earlier this week.
