Belgium’s Six Construct has picked up a US $490 million (AED1.8 billion) contract to build what will become Abu Dhabi’s tallest tower – the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company Headquarters (Adnoc).

The first package worth $163 million for the core and shell was awarded to Six Construct last week with four more packages to follow.

The project is being managed by Six Construct internally and the consultant on the job is Halcrow. Adnoc is the client.

Work on the project is expected to begin end May and is scheduled to be completed in around 36 months.

The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company Headquarters has been designed to become a landmark in the UAE capital. In addition to office space, the 342m tower will include a corniche club, a museum and other supporting facilities. The tower is also expected to work towards attaining a Gold or Platinum Leed status.
