WCN Editorial Team 2 Aug 2016 MIDDLE EAST BUILDINGS

Construction firm Al Futtaim Carillion has been selected as the preferred tenderer for the construction of the $1bn Reem Mall project in Abu Dhabi.

The project, developed by NREC in partnership with UPAC, will deliver 186,000sq m of leasable area.

It will feature about 450 stores, including 85 food and beverage outlets and a range of family-focused entertainment offerings.

Reem Mall is set to discuss the contract details with Al Futtaim Carillion exclusively, with the aim of finalising an agreement for the mall’s construction.

Abu Dhabi-based Dutch Foundation is currently carrying out the enabling works, which involves excavation, lateral restraint systems, and dewatering.  

Reem Mall’s chief operating officer Shane Eldstrom said: “The announcement marks yet another milestone for Reem Mall and comes on the back of final permission to construct received from Abu Dhabi Municipality earlier this month.

“Al Futtaim Carillion was selected as the preferred tenderer due to its strong track record of delivering significant high quality projects in the region, and its team of construction experts. We look forward to successfully completing the tendering process.”

Al Futtaim Carillion’s managing director Andrew Ridley-Barker said: “Al Futtaim Carillion prides itself on delivering some of the most notable projects in the region. We hope to have the process concluded shortly and deliver this important retail project to the people of Abu Dhabi.”
