CW Awards 2017: Winning residential project unveiled
ConstructionWeekOnline reveals the winner of its Residential Project of the Year Award, which was presented at the Construction Week Awards 2017 in Dubai
Nominated by BAM International, Al Ain Stadium and Mixed-Use Development was named Residential Project of the Year at the Construction Week Awards 2017.
The project, which includes extensive residential offerings, was applauded by our independent judges for the integration of infrastructure in the surrounding area, and its accessibility to the wider community.
As one panellist noted: “This area is not universally well served in this regard."
Another judge commended the planning that went into the development, and the social benefits that are likely to result.
Maged Fares, operations manager for the Middle East/Gulf State at BAM International, said that safety, quality, and the integration of construction technologies were priorities in the development of the project.
"We worked very closely with the client and the consultant," he added, noting that collaborating with the project's different stakeholders helped BAM International plan the details of the development, allowing for the timely completion of the project. "We delivered the stadium within 18 months, and within 26 months, the mixed-use development."
Nominated by Damac Properties, Damac Residenze with Interiors by Fendi Casa was named this year’s Highly Commended Residential Project.
Other shortlisted nominations included Al Habib Suqoon Gardens, nominated by Atkins; The Polo Residence, nominated by Future Metro; and Marasi Floating Homes and Rosebay, Meydan, both of which were nominated by U+A.
