IFA hotels & resorts completes main building work on fairmont residences, palm jumeirah

IFA Hotels & Resorts (IFA HR) recently completed all the main building work on its Fairmont Residences, Palm Jumeirah project in Dubai, marking an important milestone for this five star development.

The Fairmont Residences, Palm Jumeirah is located directly on the beach on the western portion of the island’s trunk. The development consists of two residential buildings with 562 units comprising of one, two and three bedroom apartments, townhouses and penthouses, with extensive landscaping, swimming pools and waterfalls.   All residences will be managed by the Fairmont Palm Jumeirah hotel (scheduled to open 2010), which is positioned between the two residential buildings. 

Werner Burger, IFA HR President & COO, said: “We are delighted to have reached this key milestone of the project’s realisation and thank our development partners on their good work thus far.  We are now busy with all the interior finishes, bringing us one step closer to delivering yet another high end product to our valued customers.” 

The residential development is on target for completion with the first units completed during the end of quarter three 2009, followed by the handover to owners soon after.  Finishing works are swiftly progressing on the external works, the penthouse levels as well as the swimming pools and landscaping. The beach profiling is planned to get underway during August 2009, while preparations are being made for all testing and commissioning works. There are currently 2,800 people working daily on site and the collective working hours achieved by the total workforce is 14 million hours. 

Abdallah Yabroudi, CEO of Dubai Contracting Company commented: “This was our first contracted IFA Hotels & Resorts project.  We are well equipped with rich experience gained in the Dubai construction industry with skilled labour and resources to take on a project of this size. We look forward to delivering an excellent product.”

Operations Board Director for Mace (the project and programme managers), Nic Alford, commented: “This has been a positively challenging project, but we are confident we are going to complete on time and hand over what will be another successful project.”

Since the residences will be managed by the adjacent five star Fairmont Palm Jumeirah hotel, residents will enjoy superior five star services and facilities, as one would expect from an international five star brand, from traditional concierge services to additional ‘a la carte’ services including housekeeping, grocery shopping and more. Both buildings will benefit from 24-hour security and maintenance services, as well as a variety fitness and leisure facilities.  Residents will also enjoy the proximity to the Golden Mile, Palm Jumeirah project with many planned retail outlets opening in the near future.

Burger concluded: “We are in the process of handing over the Golden Mile, Palm Jumeirah residences which began in May; delivery to our customers is our number one priority at the moment and we are continuing to achieve this across our different projects despite the current market climate.”
