Iconic Dubai projects win global award

Staff Report

Dubai : The Corporate Office, Dubai Government, and property developer Nakheel have won global recognition for The Palm and The World.

Mahmoud Saleh, Secretary-General of The Corporate Office, recently accepted the International State construction award from Pietro Lunardi, Italian Minister of Public Works.

The recognition comes from Samoter, the International Exhibition of Earth-Moving, Site and Building Industry Machinery, for the bold design and innovative architectural vision of the future.

"Such an international achievement, highlighting the dynamism of Dubai, enables us to convey to the international audience the exceptional speed of development and unparalleled dynamism currently taking place in the UAE," Saleh said.

"As a country we have a clear vision of expansion, and we are uniquely positioned to execute this vision with clarity and speed." Sultan Ahmad Bin Sulayem, executive chairman of Nakheel, said: "It is fantastic that Nakheel is being recognised for its iconic developments, by a global audience, and on such a prominent international platform.

"Never before have projects of this magnitude been imagined, let alone undertaken." He said the award affirms Nakheel's status as a global player, and reflects its ability to not only imagine but also to translate these mega promises into reality.
