Engineering Contracting Company LLC (ECC) has revealed construction work on Rawda and UNA in Town Square Dubai is 43 per cent complete.

ECC started work on the two residential communities, launched by Nshama, in February this year.

And the development is heading towards an early completion in 2020, with a built-up area of 150,000m2

Kamal Farah, director of ECC Group, said: “I believe that our collaboration with Nshama will yield something special for the market. The Rawda and UNA projects are prime examples of this as we have managed to surpass our anticipated work schedule by 3.2 per cent, reaching 43 per cent completion in a duration of nine months, an achievement which shows the efficiency of both companies and the quality of process we are using to keep on track.”

He added: “We have leveraged on our associated companies, Abanos and PMI, to implement streamlined processes such as BIM, throughout the construction process. We are proud of this achievement and look forward to continuing our relationship with Nshama for delivering dynamic solutions to our valued clients at all stages of construction.”

The tallest building in Town Square Dubai, Rawda offers direct access to the Town Square Park that spans an area of over 50,000m2 and features several retail outlets and cafes.

Rawda (construction cost of AED473 million) and UNA block 1 (construction cost of AED176 million), consist of five towers offering 1,193 residential units featuring an assortment of studio, one, two and three-bedroom units each equipped with contemporary amenities. 

Abanos and PMI’s scope of work included the complete joinery as well as the steel and aluminium manufacturing, supply and installation for the project.

Fred Durie, CEO of Nshama, added: “We are committed to delivering these residences as per schedule and work with leading contracting companies to achieve our goal. ECC has a strong track-record in project delivery and on-schedule construction to the highest quality standards.”
