Carillion’s Middle East joint venture, Carillion Al Futtaim, has won two contracts worth £380m in Dubai.
The joint venture has been selected as preferred bidder for a £225m mixed-use development on the Dubai Creek waterfront.
The project, which is being developed by Dubai-based holding company Meraas, consists of retail buildings, underground and multi-storey car parks, three hotels, a mosque, museums, traditional workshops and a market.
Meraas has also selected Al Futtaim Carillion for the construction of La Mer at Jumeirah, also in Dubai.
The project, worth £155m, will include construction of a mixture of retail and public facility buildings, together with substantial external landscaping to create over 1 km of beach-themed frontage.
Commenting on the deals, Carillion chief executive Richard Howson said: ”We are delighted to have been selected as the preferred bidder for these two major contracts.
“This reflects our reputation for high-quality and reliability and we look forward to working with Meraas to deliver these prestigious projects.”
Other recent wins for Carillion include the contract for Scape’s six-year £1.5bn national facilities management framework.
