Abu Dhabi, March 1, 2011
Bloom Properties, the property and lifestyle development arm of National Holding based in Abu Dhabi, said it has completed the structural works for Brighton College Abu Dhabi in record time.
Once ready, the Brighton College campus at Bloom Gardens, the exclusive residential development located on the eastern corniche in Abu Dhabi, will offer education in the British curriculum, said a statement from Bloom Properties.
Hani Raydan, general manager of Bloom Education, said: “Bloom Properties is committed to delivering on its promise of completing the project on schedule. Our joint efforts with the contractors, mandated to comply with our stringent quality standards, are beginning to bear fruit.'
Bloom Education, he said, had partnered with Brighton College to bring the prestigious school to the region, with the first school opening in September at Bloom Gardens.
'To date, 15,000 cu m of concrete have been poured into the school structure and over 2,500 tonnes of steel reinforcements utilised for the 34,000 sq m project.'
'A total of 1,000 labourers worked around the clock to complete the structural work in record time. The dedication of all involved in the project is truly commendable and has resulted in the completion of structural works earlier than forecast,' he added.
