Omniyat Properties has awarded Nasa Multiplex the main construction contract for its US $ 463 million commercial development, The Opus, which will be built in Business Bay.

Construction on the project has begun and is expected to be completed in the second half of 2010.

UK-based Gleeds is the project manager.

The contract requires Nasa Multiplex to manage the development's construction and ensure on-time and on-budget delivery.

Designed by world-renowned architect, Zaha Hadid, the project is aimed at attracting blue chip companies and high net worth individuals.

The development will comprise three towers with three floors dedicated to retail outlets and restaurants.

Mehdi Amjad, president and CEO, Omniyat Properties said: "The main driver behind awarding the construction contract of The Opus to Multiplex is their track record of delivering highly complex, prestigious and challenging projects. We are confident that Omniyat and Multiplex can work in tandem to complete The Opus in a timely and cost effective manner."

He added that the project has earned distinctions from the international development community for its architectural design and functionality, and won several awards, including the 2007 LiveCom External Experience Award from the UK's International Visual Communication Association.

Nasa Multiplex has delivered other projects in the Middle East such as Emirates Towers and The Gate Development at DIFC.

"With The Opus we hope to set a new benchmark in the delivery of our services and value that we offer our clients," said Graeme Robson, CEO of Multiplex.
