Multiforms wins Dhs150m deal for Downtown Burj Dubai project


Multiforms, an architectural façade specialist company and subsidiary of Emaar Industries & Investments, has won the contract for undertaking the cladding work of Boulevard Plaza, a commercial twin tower development within Emaar's Downtown Burj Dubai mixed-use community.



Boulevard Plaza.


The project, worth over Dhs150m ($40.8m), involves the completion of 60,000 sq metres of exterior cladding to Boulevard Plaza's impressive architecture. Boulevard Plaza, due for completion in the fourth quarter of 2009, will add significant commercial space to the Downtown Burj Dubai community and form a spectacular and iconic addition to Dubai's skyline.

'This is an exciting time as we grow our business into key and international projects, further developing Multiforms' company profile. Undertaking the cladding work for Boulevard Plaza with glass metal and stone skin forms one of our most challenging jobs yet,' said Mr Firas Rifai, CEO, Multiforms.

'We are proud to be working with prestigious engineers and property developers to achieve excellent results and bring innovation to commercial property space within one of Dubai's best community locations.'

Boulevard Plaza is Multiforms' fourth project within the Downtown Burj Dubai development; cladding implementation is in process for parts of The Old Town development. The construction and infrastructural elements of the Boulevard Plaza project is being managed by Samsung Corporation.

'We are pleased Multiforms is on board for the Boulevard Plaza project. The innovative façade of the Boulevard Plaza buildings will include with a 'unitized curtain wall system' façade, giving it an incredibly original aesthetic value. It is the first time we are working with Multiforms and we are confident that the Boulevard Plaza towers' end result will appear as inspiring as its plans intended,' said Mr. Y.J. Byun, Senior Project Manager Samsung Corporation.

The towers will have luxury interiors and modern amenities including fully-controllable air-conditioning, fire-alarm and fire-fighting systems and hi-speed Internet access. More than 2,100 parking spaces in nine floors will address parking issues and there will be pedestrian links to the Dubai Metro.

Boulevard Plaza will be built on the elegant architectural mix that surrounds Burj Dubai Boulevard, a 3.5 km, 73-metre circular thoroughfare with restaurants, retail outlets and fashion stores. The towers are inspired by the veils and layers of traditional Islamic architecture and will be a spectacular structure clad in glass, metal and stone skin. As they rise, the towers bend inward to form two deep-shadowed arches offering sweeping views of Downtown Burj Dubai.

Once again, I have noticed that a subsidiary of a company will do the job by the same member of that company, for this instance, EMAAR the developer and then MULTIFORMS the curtainwall contractor, a bit strange, it just a problem of conflict of interest I guess. It's just the same story with ETA STAR properties (developer), ETA ASCON (main contractor), ETA MELCO (MEP contractor) and ARABIAN ALUMINIUM (CW contractor) doing the same project...Who will check the quality of the works done? Even if you have the client rep or consultants to check the works, in the end, the CLIENT has the last say.... just my 2 cents, a caution to investors investing in Dubai properties... peace....

So you are saying a client will tolerate a low quality job if it is done in-house, but will not if someone else is doing it? I don't think this is much of an issue.

all firms would try to cut costs as much as they can...quality is a different issue altogether
other contractors also have crappy quality sometimes...

Contracts awarded forETA Star's projects

Dubai: Property developer ETA Star has awarded contracts worth Dh470 million for two projects in the Jumeirah Lake Towers Gold Crest Executive and Gold Crest Views-2.

Dubai-based Al Meraikhi won the Dh250 million main contract for Gold Crest Views-2. ETA Star has completed the piling for the foundations and handed over the site to Al Meraikhi. The project is scheduled for completion by March 2008.

The main contract for Gold Crest Executive was signed with the Ascon Al Aweer joint venture for Dh220 million. The piling for the foundation is complete and the contract for superstructure work is expected to commence this month to meet a completion date of June 2008.

ETA Star also awarded the sub-contracts for Gold Crest Executive to several companies. ETA-Melco was awarded the lift package contract while the aluminum and glazing contracts were awarded to Arabian Aluminum.

The electro-mechanical and plumbing works were awarded to BK Gulf and the post-tension contracts were given to D. Haddad.

Gold Crest Executive is a 39-storey structure that comprises office space and residential apartments. Complete with a food court, shopping arcade and a host of other facilities, the project will be surrounded by lakes, verdant greens and landscaping.




the above is a development of ETA STAR properties, and i have said, there will be no check and balance for this kind of project just because companies involved are subsidiary of the mother company itself, which is ETA STAR.

In the end, as what i have read in the forum especially in the Jumeirah Lake towers thread, most projects are delayed. Even blaming FORCE MAJEURE...

I have nothing against these developers, it's just that this is one of the reasons projects don't have the expected quality by investors and most of these projects are delayed. again, just my 2 cents.. peace...
