Drake & Scull International, a regional market leader in engineering and related services, has confirmed that its subsidiary, Gulf Technical Construction Company (GTCC), has been awarded a Dh175 million ($47.64 million) contract to build a residential tower in Dubai's Business Bay.

The contract is by Orion Real Estate Development for its West Bay residential tower project.

The scope of work includes construction, civil engineering, and mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) works and the project is scheduled for completion within 33 months.

The West Bay residential tower is strategically located in Dubai’s new business capital, the Business Bay Central Business District, which is being developed as a commercial, residential and business cluster spanning a 5.9 million sq m area from Ras Al Khor to Sheikh Zayed Road.

Once completed, the 34-storey West Bay residential tower will feature 252 residential apartments.

Mohammad Atatreh, board member, Drake & Scull International, said: “This deal is an excellent addition to the growing portfolio of our civil contracting subsidiary Gulf Technical Construction Company which has emerged as a preferred general contracting partner in the UAE. We are pleased to pick up momentum in our project awards in the UAE market and we are currently accelerating our bidding activities to secure additional work primarily in the MEP sector.”

GTCC is involved in several high-profile UAE projects and is currently executing The Pointe project, a new retail and entertainment complex at the Palm Jumeirah, in addition to Maliha Hospital and Al Reef Residences Tower in Dubai. - TradeArabia News Service
