UAE-based and chairman Emad Azmy-led contractor, ASGC, has been picked to build the region’s first cruise port terminal, real estate giant Meraas's Dubai Cruise Terminal, located between Bluewaters and Palm Jumeirah at Dubai Harbour, a 186ha development launched in January 2017 by HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

As part of the project, ASGC will deliver building works for two main cruise terminal buildings located on a 1km quay.

Additionally, the contractor will implement all associated fit-out and external works, and install fixtures, fittings, and equipment (FFE) for the project, as well as build a central unit structure for the project.

Commenting on the contract, chief executive officer of ASGC, Bishoy Azmy, said the firm would deliver Dubai Cruise Terminal using “latest construction processes”. 

Upon completion, the terminal will have a combined floor area of 2.7ha and the capacity to accommodate 15,000 guests. 

ASGC told Construction Week earlier this week that it had recorded 87% completion on foundation works for Emaar's Address Harbour Point project, adding that it had started concrete works on the project's ground floor slab.
