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 Alshamkha which was launched earlier this year, commenced in July. This followed the appointment of Tristar Engineering & Construction as the main contractor. With a contract value of Dh794 million, the handover of the work on the 2.8 million sq m development is expected by July 2021, Aldar said.
As part of the 24-month contract, Tristar’s mandate includes the construction of roads and infrastructure alongside all works related to earth, storm drainage and sewerage. The contractor’s work will also include installing the gas network, water works, irrigation and telecom systems, in addition to general road works, street lighting and landscaping.
Meanwhile, the main contract of Dh220 million worth of construction work at 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 cutting is underway.
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, the update said.
With the structure completed for all villas, infrastructure works will continue to make 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 also nearing completion and plasterworks, floor and wall tiling, and ceiling works progressing across all buildings, it said.
On Saadiyat Island, construction is substantially complete at Mamsha Al Saadiyat with finishing works underway and the conveying system entering final stages of installation. Tree planting is in progress for the promenade and the authority approvals process is underway. Outside, the 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, it continued.
On Reem Island, work on the Bridges, a six-building, 1,272-home development, is progressing well. Concrete works in phase one (buildings 1-3) were completed in February 2019 and the buildings are moving closer to the “closing the envelope” stage, allowing for the finalisation of finishing works.
As for phase two (buildings 4-6), superstructure works are moving closer to completion and the project’s expected completion date is on schedule, it said.
At Alghadeer, Aldar’s sustainability focused masterplan, excavation works are now almost complete, with foundations, water proofing, and binding making good progress. Work on the mock-up villas is well underway, and infrastructure works have commenced. Situated close to the border of Abu Dhabi and Dubai, Alghadeer features over 14,000 high-quality homes, commercial properties, cultural and institutional amenities and entertainment attractions to be built over the coming 15 years.
