New contract follows a $21.7m infrastructure works contract that was awarded in December 2019 for the initial village and central loop road
A contract worth $54.4m has been awarded to Gulf Contractors Company (GCC) by the Jubail Island Investment Company (JIIC).
The contract outlines the delivery of infrastructure works at JIIC’s $1.36bn Jubail Island project in Abu Dhabi.
According to a statement, the works are part of an 18-month contract to complete the infrastructure required for the remaining residential villages within Phase One of the project at Nad Al Dhabi, Seef Al Jubail and Ain Al Maha.
The scope of GCC’s contract comprises the construction of over 47.5km of internal roads in the Nad Al Dhabi, Seef Al Jubail and Ain Al Maha villages. Infrastructure development including electricity, water, sewage, irrigation, telecom and gas networks, as well as street lighting are said to also be part of GCC’s scope.
“Following the commencement of construction for the initial infrastructure works in early 2020, we are delighted to confirm the start of infrastructure works to complete the remaining Phase 1 villages on Jubail Island, thus demonstrating our dedicated commitment to on-time delivery of plots as early as Q3 2021,” said JIIC managing director Mounir Haidar.
Overall infrastructure works on Jubail Island are said to cumulatively amount to approximately $163.3m and JIIC has confirmed that $108.9m worth of works are already underway.
Once complete, Jubail Island will comprise a mix of serviced plots, high-end and mid-range properties as well as retail, office park and F&B outlets. The development will also feature spacious and well-appointed outdoor areas including parks, walking tracks, kayaking stations and cycling routes for nature lovers and water sports enthusiasts, the statement said.
