Carillion to help reshape parts of Dubai

A Carillion/Al Futtaim joint venture has secured two major projects in Dubai worth £380M.

The long-established AFC partnership ofthe Wolverhampton and Dubai based firms was selected by developer Meraas for the mixed-use schemes in the Emirate.

AFC was named preferred bidder for a £225M contract on the Dubai Creek waterfront, as well as a £155M deal to build La Mer at Jumeirah.

The Dubai Creek project consists of food, beverage and other retail buildings; underground and multi-storey car parks; three hotels; a mosque; museums; traditional workshops; and a market.

La Mer involves creation of top-end retail and public-facility buildings, together with substantial external landscaping, to create more than 1km of beach-themed frontage.

Carillion chief executive Richard Howson said: ”We are delighted to have been selected as the preferred bidder for these two major contracts.

“This reflects our reputation for high-quality and reliability and we look forward to working with Meraas to deliver these prestigious projects.”
