Al Futtaim Carillion (AFC) has won a £160M contract from Dubai World Trade Centre for Phase 1A6 of the One Central development, an integrated real estate development in Dubai.

The project is located between the current Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre and Emirates Towers in the heart of the city's Central Business District.

Phase 1A6 includes a built-up area of 182,500 sq m and features two Grade A office buildings of 12 and eight floors, which have already achieved the LEED Gold precertification from the US Green Building Council. Construction will start in January 2017 and is set to be completed at the end of 2018.

Carillion's CEO Richard Howson said: "We are delighted to have been selected for Phase 1A6, the third phase of the One Central development, where we continue to see good opportunities coming to market for which our capabilities and reputation for delivering to high standards of quality, safety and reliability are important to customers."

Earlier, AFC completed Phase 1A2 of the development, which is in the process of being leased and is currently executing the contract for Phase 1A5, which was awarded in October 2015.
