Dubai Contracting Company (DCC) has been awarded the main superstructure works on the World Trade Centre Residence in Dubai, which is being built on the site of the former WTC Hotel. Turner Construction International is the project and construction manager. The WTC Residence will feature two towers, incorporating a total of 377 luxury apartments. One of the towers will be 40 storeys-high while the other will be 30 storeys. A project spokesman said the value of the contract was not being released. Both towers will be configured in an L-shape abutting one another, and are in the initial construction stage alongside the World Trade Centre in Dubai. Other recent contract wins on the project include Al Abbar, which will carry out cladding work for the structure; MEP contractor, Bilt; and lift contractor ETA Melco. Tenders for the finishes and landscaping have not yet been awarded. Around 200 kg of explosives were used to collapse the six-storey WTC Hotel in April last year to make way for the new WTC Residence. When finished, the building will feature a landscaped rooftop and terrace, gym, health club and swimming pool, along with 40 different apartment types. The overall completion date for the project is scheduled for the end of 2007.
