New structure will feature a modern and distinctive style to be an architectural icon overlooking the banks of Dubai Creek, says Dubai Municipality
Emirates Building Systems (EBS) has won a contract to provide 2000MT of steel for Dubai Municipality’s new prosecution building and car-park in Umm Hurair, Dubai. The agreement with the main contractor covers engineering, fabrication and erection of steel structures in addition to fireproofing.
The new structure will feature a modern and distinctive style to be an architectural icon overlooking the banks of Dubai Creek, the statement said. The project will have a built-up area of 53,000sqm and will feature ground plus two floors of parking, a mezzanine and five floors, with a roof forming the main building structure and an extended car parking building with ground, two floors and a roof floor.
Commenting on the contract win, EBS general manager Joseph Chidiac said the company’s efficient production capabilities coupled with technical expertise play a major role in executing a fast-track project like the prosecution building.
He explained, “Keeping up with the timeline, rigorous sourcing, production and availability of the materials was a top priority despite challenging business times and the co-ordination between the electro-mechanical, aluminum, glass and steel structure teams clearly reflected our engineering capabilities. With our strong portfolio of government projects like the Dubai Metro project and the Dubai World Centre Passenger Terminal and Cargo Terminal to name a few, the current project is another addition to the list, reinstating our position as an efficient and reliable partner in the execution of key projects.”
Chidiac notes that the project is expected to be finished by December 2021, with the car-parking facility on priority to be completed by the end-year.
He concluded, “EBS is working closely with the main contractor to ensure timely completion of this fast-track prestigious project for Dubai Municipality.”
