Consultancy providing contractual, cost management and budgetary control for the event
Construction and property consultant Thomas & Adamson (T&A) has revealed it has been appointed by Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Court to provide Strategic Advisory Services for the UAE National Day 47 event being held at Zayed Sports City in front of a crowd of 22,000.
The celebrations take place on Sunday, 2 December and will see Thomas & Adamson provide contractual, cost management and budgetary control for the event.
This year’s production marking the 47th anniversary of the creation of the UAE, ‘This is Zayed’ is particularly significant as it brings to a close the ‘Year of Zayed’ celebrations, marking the centenary of the birth of The Late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the country’s founding Father, noted Thomas & Adamson. The show will feature live performances, light effects, inspirational readings and visual art.
“Due to the scale, relative complexity and unique nature of the show, it has been vitally important during each stage of the project to ensure that any contractual risks were mitigated whilst maximising the available budget,” said Andrew Mason, director of Strateic Advisory Services of Thomas & Adamson’s Abu Dhabi office.
“It’s an honour for Thomas & Adamson to be involved in a project of such national importance during the Year of Zayed,” added Rudolph Van Wyk, director of Cost Management based in Thomas and Adamson’s Dubai office. “Working with creative and production partners in a spirit of mutual trust, understanding and co-operation for a knowledgeable and respected client has been a privilege.”
