DSI will mobilise on site immediately and is scheduled to complete all MEP works on the project by June 2015, a statement from the company said.

The Fairmont Abu Dhabi Hotel and Apartments Towers are owned by the National Investment Corporation (NIC), who awarded Arabtec a contract to carry out the main construction of the project in February 2013.

The development, located near Marina Mall in Abu Dhabi, occupies an overall area of 155,000sqm. The project will have an extensive water frontage and will be an integrated development of 5-star hotels and serviced apartments.

“DSI delivered some of the major hospitality projects in the region and namely the Jumeirah Beach hotel in Dubai, the Rotana Hotel and Centro Hotel in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, in addition to The Royal Amwaj Resorts & Spa in Dubai among others,” said Tabari as he outlined DSI’s credentials for the project.

Furthermore, Hasan Abdullah Ismaik, managing director & CEO of Arabtec Holding PJSC said that the Fairmont Abu Dhabi Hotel project would play a strategic role in the UAE capital’s plans to develop tourism as part of its Economic Vision 2030.
