CW In Focus | Middle East construction in July 2019

From Saudi Aramco to Aldar Properties, the region's largest clients kept contractors busy last month

A range of large construction project contracts were awarded in July 2019, marking a successful month for the industry despite the annual summer break under way in the region, and among the stand-out contracts were the 34 deals handed out for the Marjan and Berri fields by the world’s largest oil and gas firm Saudi Aramco, with contractors such as McDermott, Hyundai, and Larsen & Toubro among key contract winners last month. 
Other deals included appointments for Aldar Properties’ Al Falah Homes, Two Four 54’s campuses and Saadiyat Island infrastructure projects, while Eltizam Asset Management Group revealed contract plans for the UAE, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.
In this video, Construction Week's features writer, Ashley Williams, rounds up the key contract awards made in July 2019.
