Egypt-based contractor  Hassan Allam Construction (HAC) has secured a design and build works contract for an infrastructure project from the Ministry of Housing and Development for the Sheikh Zayed City in Giza, Egypt.

In a statement, Hassan Allam Holding said that the project aims to expand the footprint of Sheikh Zayed City considering the increase in demand for housing facilities in the region.

As part of the project, HAC will complete design and construction of all utility networks, roads, car tunnels, and service tunnels for an area covering 32.4km2.

According to the contractor, the project will be implemented over a 24 month period.

Upon completion it will provide infrastructure to serve one million Egyptians, in addition to creating around 2,000 direct and indirect jobs during peak construction period.

HAC has been following strict health and safety guidelines during the implementation of the project.

Earlier this month, Hassan Allam Holding secured a number of contracts to develop key road projects. The contracts, which were awarded to its subsidiary HA Roads and Bridges, includes the development of major roads linking the existing Fayoum Desert Road with  the new Central Ring Road.
