DAMAC Awards Contracts for On Site Projects


17 September 2009

DUBAI — Luxury lifestyle provider DAMAC Properties has awarded three more contracts for work to begin on site at projects in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Enabling works contracts have been awarded for the company’s Harbour Heights project in Abu Dhabi and at its Suburbia development at Downtown Jebel Ali while the enabling works contract at DAMAC Heights 
has restarted.

The contract for Harbour Heights has been awarded to National Dewatering and Drainage Services and commencement of work on site will mark the third project that DAMAC Properties has under way in Abu Dhabi, following on from enabling works already in progress at its Marina Bay and Oceanscape developments in the city.

Harbour Heights is located on Al Reem Island at Marina Rise overlooking the waterfront. It is one of the few residential towers in a prime business district and will be an ideal location for those working in the area. At 41 storeys tall, the tower will offer a range of apartments from studios up to three bedrooms along with duplexes on the higher floors. In addition to this contract, a second enabling works order has been issued to National Piling for the company’s Suburbia project in Dubai at Downtown Jebel Ali. —

That's not a piling mashine, that's a digger for the perimeter wall.

Hi AltinD, i donīt mean the orange and white ones (KH 230 Hitachi). The more yellow one is new at the site. Its a "Bauer bg 40" -> a piling machine /drilling rig.

I'm talking about the same mashine. At the moment that mashine is configured as a digger not a driller.
