Interbeton picks up double deal with UAE-Qatar wins
Jumeirah Lake Towers ‘Z-cluster’ and Al Hitme resi job will be constructed by subsidiary, Higgs and Hill
Interbeton, the operating company of Netherlands-based, Royal BAM Group, has picked up two contracts in the Gulf worth US $75 million (AED275 million).
The projects – one in Dubai and the other in Qatar – will be executed by Interbeton’s local subsidiary, Higgs and Hill.
In Dubai, the company has teamed up with ALEC for the Z-cluster portion of Jumeirah Lake Towers. The work will comprise the construction of three 40 to 45-storey towers on a two-level podium.
The client for the Z-cluster is Seven Tides, and the value of phase one is approximately $66 million, of which Interbeton’s share is half. The project will be carried out over 25 months.
While in Qatar, Higgs and Hill has been awarded the contract for the Al Hitme Residential Building, which will be situated in a prominent location along Doha’s main corniche.
The company has been active in the region, mainly in the UAE, since the 1970s.
“And we want to stay active in the region in the future, so we will be bidding for other projects too. Although I don’t know at this moment in time if there are any tender procedures going on,” said Interbeton spokesperson, AC Pronk.
Earlier this year, in consortium with Six Construct, Interbeton won the $247 million contract for the construction of quay walls and dredging (phase three) at Sohar Port, Oman.
Other projects undertaken in the region by the company include Umm Said Harbour in Qatar; a power and desalination plant in Gubrah, Oman; Intercontinental Plaza and Dubai Tower, Dubai; a power desalination plant in Al Taweelah, Abu Dhabi; IKEA outlet and hypermarket, Dubai Festival City; Park Place residential and office tower, and the upgrade of Sheikh Rashid Airport terminal and concourse, in Dubai.
