JIIC awards infrastructure works contract to Gulf Contractors Company

JIIC 19 JuneJubail Island Investment Company (JIIC) has awarded more than US$54.45mn continuing infrastructure works contract for Jubail Island to Gulf Contractors Company (GCC)

The works are part of the 18-month-long contract to complete the infrastructure required for the remaining residential villages within Phase 1 of the US$1.36bn project – Nad Al Dhabi, Seef Al Jubail and Ain Al Maha.

A US$21.78mn contract for infrastructure works for the initial village and central loop road was previously awarded and announced in mid-December 2019. With overall infrastructure works on Jubail Island cumulatively amounting to approximately US$163.35mn, JIIC confirmed that works worth US$108.90mn are already underway.

The scope of the GCC contract comprises the construction of over 47.5km of internal roads in Nad Al Dhabi, Seef Al Jubail and Ain Al Maha villages. Infrastructure development, including electricity, water, sewage, irrigation, telecom and gas networks, as well as street lighting are within its ambit.

Speaking on the announcement, Mounir Haidar, managing director of JIIC, said, “Following the commencement of construction for the initial infrastructure works in early 2020, we are delighted to confirm the start of  infrastructure works to complete the remaining Phase 1 villages on Jubail Island, demonstrating our dedicated commitment to on-time delivery of plots as early as Q3 2021.”

He added, “Jubail Island has been designed as, and is destined to become, a premier lifestyle community in Abu Dhabi; providing unparalleled quality of life for discriminating residents who enjoy peaceful residential seclusion within a stones throw from the vibrant capital. Located within a 400-hectare, very low-density development, entwined within pristine natural environment, the community will also offer all of the amenities.”
