DAMAC awards contract for Ocean Heights piling works
The UAE’s largest private sector developer and luxury lifestyle provider, DAMAC Properties, has awarded a AED 21 Million contract to Abu Dhabi based APCC, a leading piling company in the UAE, to conduct piling works on the 82-storey Ocean Heights development located within the upscale Dubai Marina. The piling will reach a depth of 50 meters, one of the deepest ever in the UAE.
“After conducting a public tender over a three month period, we appointed the most qualified piling contractor to execute piling works. APCC has a proven track record within the Emirates and we are confident that the company will deliver a job that is in line with its excellent reputation” said Peter Riddoch, CEO at DAMAC Properties.
“Through piling, the foundation is laid to deliver an end product that is extremely solid, while sustaining any potential hazard” Riddoch added.
Piling works will continue over a 3 month period, after which DAMAC will appoint a main contractor to execute the construction of the luxurious residential development that is due to be delivered in 2008. “We are confident that Ocean Heights will turn out to be a fantastic development with a solid foundation, state of the art finishings and world class amenities.” Riddoch commented.
