Bloom Properties has awarded the enabling works contract for its Soho Square project in Abu Dhabi to the Dutch Foundation Company and Concrete Rehabilitation, the developer said in a statement.
Work is set to commence on site in September and is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2017 to ensure the site is ready for main construction work to begin, the Bloom Holding subsidiary said.
