Atkins wins Durrat Al Bahrain Phase 3 deal
Manama, October 18, 2009
International design and engineering consultancy, Atkins, has been awarded the architectural and infrastructure design on Phase III of Durrat Al Bahrain.
Delivery of Phase III requires the design and documentation of infrastructure works, landscaping and architectural engineering of the luxury villas plus facility buildings on the remaining four of the planned 13 islands. The two inner petal islands and two outer atoll islands cover a total land area of over 800,000 sq m and is the final phase in the construction of the 20 sq km luxury residential resort.
Atkins began working on this signature development for Bahrain in 2004 and Phase I and II are progressing well with construction, with a number of villa owners now having moved into their new homes, said a statement.
Construction work on phase III will commence next year.
“Atkins has been working closely with Durrat Khaleej Al Bahrain (DKAB) over the last five years in ensuring the delivery of one of the region’s most exceptional projects. We are delighted to have been retained for the final phase,” says Andrew Lane, project director for Atkins in the Middle East.
“Our continued presence capitalises on the in-depth knowledge and close working client relationship already established with Durrat Khaleej Al Bahrain and the commission demonstrates Atkins’ commitment to the development of Bahrain.” -TradeArabia News Service
