EXCLUSIVE:Al Jaber contracted for Saadiyat project
TDIC signs contractor for Saadiyat Beach Residences
Al Jaber has been contracted by Abu Dhabi Tourism Development and Investment Company (TDIC) to build villas on Saadiyat Island.
Under the contract, Al Jaber will work on the Saadiyat Beach Residences development, revealed a spokesperson to ConstructionWeekOnline.com
Last month Hilalco was awarded the $61 million, 18 month infrastructure contract for the project.
Fifty-three million m3 of sand has been reclaimed from the sea bed and distributed across huge sections of the island to create a gentle slope towards the ocean, so affording sea views for the villa communities in Saadiyat Beach. This has also allowed for the expressway to be dug into the island itself to restrict noise for the planned 160,000 residents.
Saadiyat Island is TDIC’s US$27 billion (AED100 billion) leisure project. The project is split into seven districts - Cutural, Marina, Promenade, Reserve, Lagoons, Retreat, and Beach – and also includes museums designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architects.
