Private sector companies aimed through tenders to build supermarket facilities in the capital
Tenders will be released by the Municipality of Abu Dhabi to deliver a chain of supermarkets and service shops in the emirate. Temporary facilities to be erected for a period of five years are part of the Municipality’s plan to provide ease of access for amenities in areas of the emirate that do not currently have a permanent community market.
A total built up area of 2,000sqm will feature these facilities in Shakhbout City, Al Shamkha, Al Heeliya South, Al Rahba and Al Bahia each. The Municipality is targeting the private sector to deliver these facilities within six months since construction commencement.
Modular design and construction processes will be followed to secure quicker completion, with each venue consisting of a supermarket along with ‘space for up to eight other shops comprising convenience retail, food and beverage as well as ATM’s and kiosks’, said a report by WAM.
Abu Dhabi’s municipal body has been increasingly involved with the enhancement of local communities in the emirate. Earlier this week, it was revealed the Municipality of Abu Dhabi would release tenders for the construction of an entertainment facility in the emirate.
This followed earlier reports from February 2014, which said the Municipality would invite investors to build and operate community centres in Yas Island, Al Shamkha and Mohammed Bin Zayed City.
