Abu Dhabi, July 16, 2014
UAE-based Arabian Construction Company (ACC) has been awarded a contract by realty organisation Brys Group to build an 81-storey tower in Noida, northern India.
The project will be the second the construction company is undertaking in the territory and its fourth in India.
"We have awarded the contract to Arabian Construction Company (ACC) for building the structure of the tower," said Rahul Gaur, Brys Group chairman and managing director.
ACC won its first contract in India from Lodha Group for building the World One, a super-tall residential skyscraper under construction in Mumbai. On completion in 2015, the 117-storey development will become the world’s tallest residential tower and the tallest building in India.
Other projects include the 80-storey Spira Tower in Supernova, Noida, two other high rises in Mumbai and a 60-floor building in Kolkata, making ACC the builder behind the tallest towers in north, east and west zones of India, said a statement.
“The awarding of this important contract has allowed ACC to further establish itself as a significant construction operator in the Indian sub-continent and is recognition of the high standards of design and build that we deliver,” Rasheed Mikati, director, ACC. “The project follows on from the journey we started in the Indian market commencing from the World One skyscraper and other three high rise towers across the country," he added.
“ACC is using its considerable expertise in high-rise construction obtained from the Gulf market to execute projects in India,” said Ani Ray, managing director, ACC India. “We have been able to demonstrate that we can partner well with India’s leading developers on prestigious projects on a win-win basis, and this was definitely an influential factor in ACC receiving the contract over other tenders,” he added.
ACC has constructed some of the most impressive high-rise buildings across the GCC and Mena regions, including a number of the tallest towers in the UAE. Famous names include the Almas Tower, Princess Tower, Sky Tower, Gate Towers, Etihad Towers, World Trade Center Abu Dhabi and Rose Rotana. The company is also currently engaged in constructing the tallest building in Jordan. - TradeArabia News Service
