Consultancy will be engaged on the project for four years
Faithful+Gould will provide project management services on phase one of Miral’s Yas Bay development on Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island. The integrated project and progamme management consultancy will be engaged on the project for four years.
Under the terms of the contract, Faithful+Gould’s services on the project will include design, construction, logistics, project, programme and health safety and security (HSSE) management across the pre-and post-contract phases.
The consultancy says that the project will add to Yas Island’s vision as a global destination for family entertainment and leisure, while supporting Abu Dhabi’s long-term drive for economic diversification.
Campbell Gray, Faithful+Gould Middle East managing director, said: “Miral has a clear objective for Yas South to become a globally recognised leisure and entertainment destination, integral to Abu Dhabi Vision 2030, and we are really excited to be a part of that. With extensive experience in the project and programme management of mega projects such as Al Maryah Central, Abu Dhabi; Bulgari Hotel & Residences on Jumeira Bay in Dubai; The Royal Atlantis, Dubai; Dubai Doha Oasis, Qatar and King Abdulaziz Airport in Saudi Arabia, Faithful+Gould will work closely with Miral to achieve its time and cost objectives.
The project includes Yas Arena, a multipurpose venue with a capacity of 18,000, a 650-key hotel, as well as cafes and restaurants, retail outlets and a cinema, all of which are expected to open to the public in 2019.
