Work on Champions Towers on track
Dubai, May 16, 2010
Memon Investments, a leading Dubai-based property developer, has passed the halfway mark on the construction of two of its prime residential developments in ‘Dubai Sports City’ - ‘Champions Tower II’ (CT II) and ‘Champions Tower III’ (CT III).
Construction has reached the 9th floor in CT II, with the developer preparing for the next slab and block work on the 4th floor; while the 10th floor in CT III has already been cast.
The awarding of various contracts to some of the UAE’s top contractors has contributed to the fast-paced construction of both towers, with Stromek Emirates Foundation having completed the initial excavation and foundation work and Al Sarh Contracting placed in charge of construction, a statement said.
Leading MEP contractor Anwar Al Aqsa is managing the electrical, fire alarm, plumbing and fire fighting instalments, while ETA MELCO has been commissioned to install six high-speed, state-of-the-art Mitsubishi elevator units for ‘CT II’ and ‘CT III’.
As construction progresses rapidly, the developer is currently looking to award contracts related to the finishing and facility management to credible partners in the UAE.
“We are very excited to approach the construction of the last levels of these projects, and eventually the handover of units to our investors, which is a major milestone in our operations as a developer of high value projects,” said Ahmed Shaikhani, MD, Memon Investments.
