UAE-based Engineering Contracting Company (ECC L.L.C.) has secured a contract worth AED687m ($187m) from Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB) to build the Badr Project Phase 1 on a DIB-owned land in the UAE.

The project forms part of a self-contained residential community that includes five distinct zones with apartment buildings, as well as a number of villas and other community buildings and recreational facilities.

DIB said that the Badr project will have a Mediterranean theme, inspired by elements of Andalusian, Spanish and Italian architecture.

With a total built-up area of 13.8m sq ft, Badr Project will be developed across five phases. First phase will have a built-up area of 2.2m sq ft and is anticipated to be completed by 2018.

Phase 1 is located centrally within the overall project adjacent to a central park with mixed-use and retail facilities.

DIB managing director Abdulla Al Hamli said: “Following a thorough tender process to identify the right construction partner, we selected ECC L.L.C. as the lead contractor to bring the Phase 1 of this project to completion.

“With regard to Badr, we are confident that given its location, quality of project, attractive price points, it will be high on the priority list of investors.”
