Carillion JV wins £160m contract

Dubai World Trade Centre has awarded Al Futtaim Carillion (AFC) the contract to deliver Phase 1A6 of One Central, a major integrated real estate development located between the current Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre and Emirates Towers in the heart of the city's Central Business District.

This latest phase of the One Central development has a built-up area of 182,500 square metres and comprises two Grade A office buildings of 12 and 8 storeys.

The contract, which is worth approximately £160 million, will begin this month and is scheduled for full completion at the end of 2018.

AFC has already completed an earlier Phase 1A2 of this development, which is in the process of being leased and is currently delivering the contact for Phase 1A5, which was awarded in October 2015. This latest award takes the overall value of AFC's contracts for the One Central development to £400 million.
