The second phase of Dubai World Trade Centre's (DWTC) One Central development is 91% complete, senior project officials told Construction Week.
Worth $2.2bn (AED8bn), the mixed-use development is being built in Dubai's Za'abeel neighbourhood, with Al-Futtaim Carillion (AFC) onsite as main contractor.
Anil Kumar, project director at AFC, said the company – which worked on the first phase of the project as well – was awarded the package for Phase 2 – which includes Offices 2 and Offices 4 – in Q1 2016.
Contractual milestones for both Phase 2 buildings are being achieved as planned, and the team has also received the building completion certificate (BCC) for Offices 3.
"Work on Offices 2 is 95% complete, and we will complete it as scheduled," Kumar told Construction Week.
Offices 2 is on track to be completed by the end of October 2017, Rami Alaileh, project director for real estate development at DWTC, said.
"Offices 4 is 98% complete, and Phase 2 of One Central is 91% complete," AFC's Kumar added.
Work on Phase 3 of the project, which has also been awarded to AFC, comprises the Offices 4 and Offices 5 buildings.
The 12-storey Offices 2 building offers entire floors ranging from 1,290m2 to 4,640m2, which can be leased as whole floors or smaller units, with a total building size of approximately 4.1ha (41,270m2)
