Text from http://www.jbr.ae/location_map.htm
Jumeirah Beach Residence is an impressive 22 million sq. ft. of gross floor area development across a length of 1.7 kilometres. It features 36 residential towers, 4 hotel towers, beach clubs and is being developed by the same team that produced landmark projects such as the Dubai Internet City and the Dubai Media City. The theme architects are Wimberly Allison Tong & Goo and the project manager is MACE International, both globally renowned for their ability to orchestrate and execute large-scale projects to perfection. The Jumeirah Beach Residence design will reflect the architectural theme of future Dubai through a fusion of Mediterranean and local architectural elements, while retaining a unique style and aesthetic expression of its own.

Model ( wish i knew where it was so i could get some snaps )

Six main contractors to divide up the JBR millions
http://www.itp.net/business/news/det...y=construction

Five of the six main contractors have been selected to develop six of Jumeirah Beach Residence’s seven sectors.

The contract awards add up to the major chunk of a cool Dhs5.2 billion that is being spent to build the development. It may be the largest single batch of contracts to be awarded since the new phase of growth began in Dubai.

“Sector 5 is still in the negotiating stage and we expect the same to be finalised in a couple of week’s time,” says Hashim Al Dabal, CEO of Estithmaar Realty, developer of Jumeirah Beach Residence.

The waterfront development is seen as the third largest on-going real estate project after those by Nakheel and Emaar Properties. It will occupy some 1.7 km of the last beachfront within Jumeirah.

Arab Technical Construction Company (Arabtec) has picked up two of the sectors (Sector 1 and 3) and Saleh Construction (Sector 2), Al Habtoor Engineering (Sector 4), Al Shafar General Contracting Co. (Sector 6) and Dubai Civil Engineering (Sector 7) have each picked up one.

Al Dabal said the main contractors were selected through a detailed evaluation process. “The Jumeirah Beach Residence project is very high-profile and we wanted to ensure that we got the very best people to execute it. In this way, we can ensure top quality. The contractors that have been finally selected are all top of their class with a tremendous track record of executing many of the world-class projects that dot the city of Dubai,” Al Dabal said.

Marketmen say that it is probably the single largest batch of contracts to come out of the Gulf in recent times. The awards are expected to give further boost to the ongoing construction boom. “We are onto an indeed very busy phase of development. Thousands of workers are being mobilised to bring up Jumeirah’s last beachfront development offering a resort lifestyle,” says Al Dabal.

“We have so far been busy with preparing the ground for the start of building the towers that will soon begin to rise off the ground. I am extremely pleased that the team at Jumeirah Beach Residence has again come through with the selection of contractors for six of the sectors,” Al Dabal added. The JBR team he referred to was also behind the development of Dubai Internet City and the Dubai Media City projects.

Al Dabal said that the main construction work on seven sectors on the vast property development is likely to start almost simultaneously and soon. So far the project has concentrated on site preparation and mobilisation and some piling work.

Thirty-six residential towers and four hotel properties are to built. The four hotels are in design process and that at the site, excavation has been completed. “We are committed to completing this quality development on time and we will,” he added.

The residential, commercial, entertainment and retail development is being built at a cost of Dhs5.2 billion and will cover a gross floor area of more than 2.2 million m2. The development’s project manager is Mace International.

Appointment of the main contractors has impacted on the financial sector too. Contractors have successfully turned to banks to support the building of the large projects.

Dubai Islamic Bank has signed an agreement with Al Habtoor Engineering on providing facilities to cover the financial demands for Sector 4. This sector will comprise eight residential towers some reaching 54 floors in height.

Earlier, Mashreqbank came forward to provide the UAE’s single largest financing for a construction project. It has agreed to support Arabtec’s contract valued at Dhs1.6 billion for Jumeirah Beach Residence. The facilities will finance the main contractor for the construction of Sector 1, comprising six residential towers, and Sector 3 for a further seven residential towers, all offering apartments ranging from studios to penthouses on a freehold basis.

Concrete goes mobile in containers: a Dubai first



http://www.itp.net/business/news/det...e&tbl=itp_news

Piling work is well underway on many of the proposed towers at Jumeirah Beach Residence project, which is coming up along the last stretch of Jumeirah Beach this side of Jebel Ali.
Unimix is supplying readymix concrete for a variety of piles ranging in diameter from 800mm to 1000mm and lengths vary from 18-36 metres deep.

The Jumeirah Beach Residence project forms possibly the largest ‘package’ in the area marked by hectic construction activity. The development features 36 residential and four hotel towers, providing some 6500 housing units, luxury apartments, penthouses and beach clubs. It offers 2,2 million m² of gross floor area along a 1.7 km beach frontage for project developer, Estithmaar Realty.

Unimix has started production with the first fully containerised mobile concrete batching plant in Dubai for its contract on the Jumeirah Beach Residence project. The plant has been acquired from German specialist manufacturer Lintec GmbH.

Despite an existing batching plant close to Jumeirah, restrictive use on the main highways for trucks, together with Dubai’s heavy traffic congestion, meant transportation of readymix concrete was a key factor in Unimix purchasing the Lintec mobile system for the continuous supply of readymix.

According to Unimix managing director, Khalid Mohammed S. Bakit, it was vital that the plant could be installed as close as possible to the project, thereby avoiding the use of the nearby Sheikh Zayed Highway. “Other factors in choosing the Lintec system were the speed of erection and dismantling, the ease of installation and being able to produce quality end products”.

Operating 24 hours ‘round-the-clock’, the Unimix plant is producing 200 t/h in a variety of products for the foundations award. The plant is served by a fleet of up to thirty 9–12 m3 capacity mixer trucks for delivery to the adjacent site.

The installation is also located alongside the Sheraton Hotel Beach Resort, a busy centre for tourists and therefore needed to conform to strict environmental controls; with the containerised plant meeting noise, dust and heat emissions norms.

Although only recently introduced by Lintec, the containerised concept is rapidly gaining popularity with asphalt and concrete producers worldwide who need to frequently move their equipment from one project to another.

The Jumeirah Beach Residence installation features a twin tower configuration with each tower comprising a mixer unit and weighing unit, this time installed within 8m ISO containers.

Once the project is completed, the complete installation can be easily dismantled and moved to the next location in just two days

The silver towers are the Al Futtan Marine Towers, these arent part of the JBR development, just located inside the JBR District

Here is a repost of some JBR images, I uploaded previously...

JBR construction still looks pretty flat, but they have guranteed they will be ready on time (40 towers early 2006)

Correct, the Zone C glass towers are the Al Futtan Marine Towers.

I got hold of the JBR sales DVD today at a property exhibition in London, here are some screenshots. Let me know if anyone wants the Video in DIVX format.

Sorry about the delay, here is the JBR Sales Video, converted to DIVX from DVD.

JBRSalesVideo.avi
352 x 256 Video 82kbps / Audio 64kbps MP3
For best performance save locally before viewing.

It is 21Mb the original vob file was 240Mb. Remember you need the DIVX/XVID codec to play the video.

Recommend you install this Codec first:- ffdshow xvid divx Codec 1.2Mb

Recommend you also use a video player like
BSPlayer 1.9Mb

Salaamz,
