Quote:

Target Engineering Construction Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of UAE-based construction giant, Arabtec Holding, has been awarded a $53.4m (AED196m) contract by Emaar Properties.

Under the terms of the deal, Target will conduct main works for Phase 1 of Emaar’s Forte project in Downtown Dubai.

The scope of the contract involves the construction of five basements for two residential towers, according to a missive that Arabtec issued to Dubai Financial Market (DFM).

Target plans to commence work on Forte this month, and expects to complete its package of within a year.

ommenting on the contract win, Hamish Tyrwhitt, group chief executive of Arabtec Holding, said: “We look forward to working on another project with Emaar Properties.

“We continue to win projects that are aligned with our key geographies and our key competencies, whilst maintaining a robust risk management approach,” he added.

Seems like height has been adjusted:

Arabtec unit wins $268m contract for Downtown Dubai project

The work will cover phase 2 of Forte, a residential development in Downtown Dubai by Emaar Properties, the contractor said in a statement.

The contract scope includes the construction of the podium and twin towers of 67 and 46 floors, which is in addition to phase 1, that was previously awarded to Target for the construction of five basements for the two residential towers.

The duration of phase 1 and 2 will be 40 months, the company said.

Maybe this explains why this project is so damn slow …

Just remember this quote from May 2015(!):

And know they say construction will take another 40 month. As we all know it would be a miracle if they stick to this … Al Attar is already shivering in fear of losing his title for the slowest construction site

But there is no doubt about that they are struggling with this. Otherwise they wouldn’t reduce the height/floor count …

That article names floors in addition to the podium though, not including the podium, so I dunno if there's actually any reduction.

Must be fun going down that ramp at the top of the image with a fully loaded truck.
