Construction work on Abu Dhabi’s Delma School is progressing according to schedule, according to Abu Dhabi General Services Company (Musanada).
The construction works on the school are expected to be completed and ready for handover in June 2018.
The $29.13m (AED107m) project will conclude Phase 6 of the Abu Dhabi Future Schools construction programme, and will feature advanced safety and security systems.
Musanada said that the school would include an advanced thermal insulation system for external walls and roofs that is aligned to green building principles, in addition to an electromechanical management system that enhances the building's operational efficiency and reduces energy consumption.
Located on Delma Island, the project will comprise a kindergarten and cycle-one school. The main building will boast 28 classrooms, a library, prayer room, a multipurpose hall, administration offices, a cafeteria, laboratories, and music classrooms.
Project works will also involve external landscaping activities and the construction of playgrounds.
Delma School will accommodate 625 cycle-one pupils and 160 kindergarten pupils. The school occupies a 9,800m2 plot, and approximately 700 engineers and labourers are currently working to deliver the facility under the supervision of CORE Engineering Consulting Company.
Nael General Contracting Company was appointed as the project's main contractor. The company is being supported by seven sub-contractors.
