Leading UAE-based contractor Arabtec said one of its subsidiaries has been awarded a Dh250-million ($68 million) contract by Turkish group TAV Tepe Akfen Construction to provide MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) services for a major project being developed by Emaar Properties in Dubai.
As per the deal, Efeco (Emirates Falcon Electromechanical Company) will be responsible for the MEP works at Tower A2 and A3 which has a common basement in Plot A at the Opera District coming up in Downtown Dubai.
The twin towers will boast a total of 809 apartments over a built-up area of 2.35 million sq ft, said the company in a statement.
Work will start on the project over the next few days and is due for completion by the end of 2020, it added.
