This month we look at progress on one of Abu Dhabi’s new educational institutes, Brighton College Abu Dhabi, on which structural works were completed last month
?Structural works on Brighton College Abu Dhabi were completed last month, according to developer Bloom Properties, the real estate arm of National Holding. Up to 15,000m3 of concrete have been poured into the school structure and more than 2500 tons of steel reinforcements have been utilised for the 34,000m2 project, with 1000-plus labourers reported to have “worked around the clock” to complete the structural work in record time.
“Bloom Properties is committed to delivering on its promise of completing the project on schedule. Our joint efforts with the contractors, mandated to comply with our stringent quality standards, are beginning to bear fruit. The dedication of all involved in the project is truly commendable and has resulted in the completion of structural works earlier than forecast,” Bloom Education general manager Hani Raydan said in a statement. Admissions for the 2011-2012 academic year have already commenced at Brighton College Abu Dhabi classes from pre-reception to grade nine.

The Brighton College campus at Bloom Gardens will offer world-class education in the British curriculum. Its differentiating factor will include a creative blend of Arabic and Islamic Studies in compliance with Abu Dhabi Education Council.
The campus is also designed to provide dedicated centres of excellence in academic, visual and performing arts, and sporting activities. The three areas will be linked by spaces for outdoor learning and social interaction.
Bloom is the property and lifestyle development arm of National Holding, with headquarters in Abu Dhabi, UAE. The company has been in operation since 1999 with an established portfolio of completed projects.
The first development launched for sale by Bloom is its residential development, Bloom Gardens, which is located on the Eastern Corniche in Abu Dhabi. Bloom Education partnered with Brighton College to bring the school to the region.
