UAE-based ASGC has been appointed as the main contractor for the recently announced 25hours One Central hotel, which will be operated by AccorHotels.
Located in Dubai World Trade Centre’s One Central development, the hotel will include 434 rooms across more than nine floors, one ground level, and four basement levels.
The hotel will be AccorHotels’ first to be built in the region and the world’s largest upon completion in 2020, according to a statement.
Ground has already been broken on the site with ASGC planning to deploy its technology-driven strategy on the project.
The contractor will use drones with high-definition closed-circuit television and 360° video-capturing systems to monitor progress at the site.
Bishoy Azmy, CEO of ASGC, said: “It is a privilege to work on such an iconic hospitality project, one that will become the largest in the 25hours Hotel global portfolio.
“In matching to the vision of AccorHotels and DWTC, we will be leveraging the very best techniques, technologies and talent to ensure smooth project completion and deliver to the impeccable standards that we are all committed to.”
ASGC announced last year that it will expand on its cohort of trained drone operators, and integrate high-definition (HD) closed-circuit television (CCTV) and 360° video-capturing systems within its fleet as part of the company’s push to integrate technology on site.
The company counts Emaar, Bloom Properties, Al Habtoor Group, Dubai Municipality, and the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) among its clients, and was awarded the Taj Hotel project in Dubai in 2016. ASGC was also the main contractor for Waldorf Astoria Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah.
