Al Fara'a projects on track
Dubai, August 11, 2009
Al Fara'a Properties, a member of the Al Fara’a Construction, property and industrial group, said that it is on track to meet delivery targets for two of its major residential projects, scheduled for the last quarter of 2010.
One of the projects, ‘The Manhattan’ is inspired by the urban residences of 1930s New York, and will offer 355 units, which comprise a selection of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments.
The other project within Jumeirah Village, ‘Mulberry Mansions' will comprise Victorian-styled townhouses with four bedrooms, a private two-car garage, a terrace, a balcony, maid’s room with separate access, and a small private garden.
“Construction on ‘The Manhattan’ is on schedule, with the ground floor slab already constructed in its entirety, including the ramps leading to the three basements,” said Natasha Gangaramani, director of Al Fara'a Properties.
“We are committed to exceeding the expectations of our clients throughout the value chain, whether in seeking out the right solution for our client’s needs, to actively ensuring the sustained value of their investment,” she added.
“We believe that swift, efficient and timely handover of projects holds as much importance to investor as the value of investment driven by construction quality and facilities offered,” Gangaramani continued.
“Backed by the three decade strong solid track record of the Al Fara’a Group as well as the flexibility to meet our primary goal of excellence, we have recently launched our facilities management division, which will enable us to ensure that all our on-going projects will be built according to global best practices.”
John Baarens, general manager, Al Fara’a General Contracting, the appointed contractor for the Jumeirah Village-based projects, said: “With the completion of the initial groundworks, we are now focusing on the superstructures of ‘The Manhattan’ and ‘Mulberry Mansions’.
“Specifically, we are positioning the steel reinforced bars for the vertical elements in order to secure the first floor.”
“To ensure that we achieve the high standards and value proposition for our client, we will not only utilise extensive tendering and value engineering capabilities offered in the market, but we will continue to access the broad-base of expertise throughout the Al Fara’a Construction, property and industrial group. We are confident that we can deliver these projects by the end of 2010,” Baarens concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
