The Building Division of Dutco Balfour Beatty has won the contract to construct a new Novotel Hotel complex in the Al Barsha district of Dubai. This project is valued at £115M.
The project comprises three 35 storey towers constructed on a common nine storey basement and podium section. Site preparation has already been completed and therefore the project will commence in the second quarter of 2008 and be completed by the end of 2010.
BK Gulf, which is the mechanical and electrical contracting business within the Dutco Balfour Beatty Group, has been awarded the contract for the supply and installation of M&E and key operational systems for the University Hospital in Dubai. The £89M project will begin in the third quarter of 2008 and complete in 2010.
Balfour Beatty Chief Executive, Ian Tyler, said: "These contract wins further demonstrate the strength of our business in the UAE. Balfour Beatty has been an established player in Dubai for more than 30 years. In that time, we have earned a strong reputation for the timely delivery of complex major projects such as these. We anticipate further awards in the near future that will support our continuing growth in the Middle East region."
