China Harbour wins $40m RAK Falcon Is infra deal
Al Hamra Real Estate pens deal with China Harbour Engineering for marine and infrastructure works at exclusive development
China Harbour Engineering Company has secured a $40.8m (AED150m) contract for the marine and infrastructure works at Al Hamra’s Falcon Island project in Ras Al Khaimah, the UAE’s most northern emirate.
Developers Al Hamra Real Estate describe Falcon Island as the first LEED Platinum Certified real estate of its kind in the Gulf, with 150 luxury five-bedroom villas and eight bedroom mansions with a central canal that will split the island in two, offering up a ‘little piece of Venice in the Middle East’.
The island will be completely solar powered. Hybrid district cooling systems will provide temperature control at a fraction of conventional costs, and a range of innovative smart technologies will be installed as standard, allowing residents to assume greater control over energy consumption and home automation.
China Harbour will be responsible for dredging the canal, landscaping private and public beaches; and power, sewage, and road networks. Existing beaches at Al Hamra Village will also be enhanced as part of the awarded contract.
Li Guowei, general manager of China Harbour Engineering Company, said; “China Harbour Engineering Company is a world-renowned contractor, responsible for infrastructure projects worth over US$10 billion. “Through these developments we’ve demonstrated our ability to work to the highest standards and specifications, and we are delighted to be taking charge of the marine and infrastructure works at Falcon Island.”
