Aldar invites firms to bid for Abu Dhabi hotel work

Local real estate developer Aldar Properties has invited companies to bid by 6 December for the contract to build the Banyan Tree hotel at its Al-Gurm development in Abu Dhabi.

The prequalifiers include the local Arabtec Construction, the local/Belgian Six Construct Abu Dhabi, Germany's Ed Zueblin, the local Cypriot Abu Dhabi J&P, the local Target Engineering Construction Company and Greece's Terna.

The contract involves the construction of a 161-room, five-star hotel which will be made up of chalets on individual islands and suites built around a central lagoon.

Six Construct was awarded the estimated AED600m ($163m) residential construction package in May 2007.

It involves the construction of villas as well as mechanical, electrical and plumbing works.

Each of the 59 homes will have a private pool and jetty, and some will have a private beach. Nine of the homes will be on individual islands.

The company was awarded the piling package in December 2006 (MEED 25:5:07).

Lebanon's Dar al-Handasah is the consultant.
