August 2019

Aldar Properties has awarded Dh1 billion ($272 million) worth of contracts for the Alreeman and Reflection projects in Abu Dhabi.

 Providing an update on projects under development across its key destinations in Abu Dhabi, Aldar said work on infrastructure in Alreeman, a master-planned residential and commercial investment zone in the recently-launched Alshamkha commenced in July. This followed the appointment of Tristar Engineering & Construction as the main contractor under a Dh794-million contract for the 2.8-million-sq-m development is expected to be completed by July 2021, Aldar said.

 As part of the contract, Tristar will construct roads and infrastructure alongside all works related to storm drainage and sewerage, gas, water, irrigation and telecommunication, and road works networks.

 Meanwhile, the main Dh220-million contract for Reflection was awarded to Fibrex Construction Group in April, to be completed over a period of 24 months. Excavation, piling and shoring works as well as pile load tests have already been completed at the boutique two-tower residential development offering 374 homes, while pile head capping is under way.

 Steady progress is taking place across all of Aldar’s developments on Yas Island. At Yas Acres, the flagship golf and waterfront villa and townhouse development, all 652 launched villas and townhouses are at various stages of completion and infrastructure works are making significant progress with the advancement of the golf course earthworks, roads and hardscape. Structural works at Water’s Edge are progressing across all 13 buildings with floor slabs being cast at various levels and blockwork making steady progress.

Concrete works are complete across the entire Mayan project, Aldar’s luxury apartment development, with blockwork nearing completion and plasterworks, floor and wall tiling, and ceiling works under way across all buildings, it said.

 On Saadiyat Island, construction is substantially complete at Mamsha Al Saadiyat with finishing works under way. Tree planting  and beach preparation work is progressing well. Jawaher Saadiyat, the island’s exclusive gated community of villas and townhouses, is also making good progress ahead of handovers this year, with joinery and other interior fixtures and fittings works entering their final stages.

On Reem Island, work on the Bridges, a six-building, 1,272-home development, is progressing well with the buildings moving nearer to the “closing the envelope” stage on Phase One, while superstructure work on Phase Two buildings is moving closer to completion.

 At Alghadeer, Aldar’s sustainability focused masterplan, excavation works are almost complete, with foundations and waterproofing making good progress. Work on the mock-up villas is under way, and infrastructure works have commenced.
