Damac subcontract awards settles Marina Terrace race
Juma Al Majid, Ali Moosa and Alico win top deals running into millions of dirhams
Damac Properties said it has awarded several sub-contracts running into several millions of dirhams relating to the on-going construction of its first 40-storey freehold deluxe property, Marina Terrace, at Dubai Marina.
The largest private freehold property developer in the UAE announced that several companies across the UAE have won the subcontracting projects that are currently being implemented on site and are expected to be finished on time of completion of the entire project by May 2005.
Juma Al Majid Establishment was awarded three contracts for Marina Terrace; and one contract each was awarded to Alico and Ali Moosa & Sons. Offering one, two and three bedroom apartments and duplexes, the 189-unit freehold Marina Terrace is considered one of the finest properties in Dubai offering unimpeded views across the waters of the Marina.
Peter Riddoch, Damac CEO, said Juma Al Majid Establishment has won the Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) subcontract. “Juma Al Majid Establishment was also awarded the installation of elevators at Marina Terrace. We will install four lifts to serve the tower and two lifts for the podium. The elevators have already left their country of origin and we expect the installation to start on site very soon,” Riddoch noted adding that MEP works at Marina Terrace are on schedule.
He said that Juma Al Majid won a third contract for the installation of the hydraulic system for the property’s window cleaning. The hydraulic system is designed to conceal the boom that will service the entire 40 floors property, incorporating the latest window cleaning boom technology in the world.
Ali Moosa & Sons have been awarded the carpentry and joinery work for the entire property while the aluminium curtain walling for Marina Terrace was awarded to Alico, which are already at site. “The curtain walling for Marina Terrace is unique because it includes a lot of aluminium cladding, giving a distinct feature to the property, while the glass used will provide good insulation during the summer months,” Riddoch pointed out.
He added that construction of the 40 floors structure was proceeding three weeks ahead of schedule and that all the units in the property will be delivered on time to their owners by May 2005.
