Nshama's Town Square on track for 2017 hand-over
More than 5,000 workers are currently on site as construction contracts worth over $816m have been awarded to different entities
Infrastructure and related works are progressing rapidly at Nshama’s Town Square development, the company said in a statement on Tuesday.
More than 5,000 workers are currently on site as construction contracts worth over $816m (AED3bn) have been awarded to different entities for eight residential projects and infrastructure work.
About 5,000 residences, as part of different neighbourhoods, are currently being built, and about 2,000 will be handed over by the end of 2017, according to the statement.
Fred Durie added: “Across all aspects of the development, we have set clear construction milestones. Town Square will be a proud addition to the residential portfolio of Dubai, made distinctive for its affordability and fascinating lifestyle attractions.”
The infrastructure completed to date includes a massive 2.5 million cubic metres earthworks, 75% of the sewer and storm water networks and 50% of the potable water, irrigation, firefighting and telecom networks.
The development has progressed on its all-round infrastructure, achieving set milestones as per schedule.
The initial road works package has been awarded to Binladin Contracting, who is also responsible for the construction of wet utilities.
UK-based contractor Kier has begun construction of the integrated pump station serving the entire development, which is proposed to have a net TSE underground storage of 16,000 cubic metre and combined pumping capacity of 411 litre per second, built on a land area of 8,000 square metre.
Emaar District Cooling (EDC), as the service provider, is building the district cooling system for Town Square.
“We are working with only the best-in-class contractors and consultants, who have accelerated their workflow using the latest technologies to ensure on-time delivery,” Durie added.
