Reem Mall, Abu Dhabi’s upcoming fashion, entertainment and dining destination, has named Al Futtaim Carillion as the preferred tenderer for construction of the US$1bn project.
Reem Mall will enter into detailed contract negotiations with Al Futtaim Carillion exclusively, with the objective of finalizing an agreement to promptly execute the remaining works.
Al Futtaim Carillion has a long history of successfully working in the UAE and Middle East, having been behind some of the country’s most notable development projects including Deira City Centre, the Dubai Mall and Dubai Festival City expansions, and New York University in Abu Dhabi.
“The announcement marks yet another milestone for Reem Mall and comes on the back of final permission to construct received from Abu Dhabi Municipality earlier this month. Al Futtaim Carillion was selected as the preferred tenderer due to its strong track record of delivering significant high quality projects in the region, and its team of construction experts,” said Shane Eldstrom, COO for Reem Mall. “We look forward to successfully completing the tendering process.”
Dutch Foundation, a full-service engineering foundation company based in Abu Dhabi, is currently on site carrying out an enabling works that will pave the way for a “quick and efficient start of the next stage of construction”, said Eldstrom.
“As such, Reem Mall is on track to be the mall destination of choice for all residents and visitors across Abu Dhabi upon completion,” he added.
