Multi-disciplinary construction company ALEC has won the contract for the construction of the $163m Jumeirah Living Marina Gate project. The project will be jointly executed with ALEC subsidiaries Alemco and Alec Fitout.
Under the terms of the contract, ALEC is responsible for the construction of one tower, as well as 15 villas and ground floor retail units. The tower’s specifications include two basement levels, ground and mezzanine levels, an eight-level podium, 48 upper floors, and a roof level, accommodating 493 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses.

The appointment of a world class contractor like ALEC is further testament to our continued strategy of working with tier one partners and suppliers.
