Dubai: RSG signs AED500mn construction deal for Sabah Rotana
Real estate developer, RSG Group of Companies, appointed Abu Dhabi-based Al Habbai Contracting as the main contractor for its project, Sabah Rotana.
The AED500mn worth contract is for the construction of a 54-floor building on Dubai’s main arterial road, Sheikh Zayed Road. The tower encompasses five-star rooms, serviced hotel apartments, food & beverage outlets, nightclubs, and meeting rooms among other inclusions. The Sky bar will have guests enjoy an evening with a spectacular view of Dubai.
To be launched before Expo 2020, the five-star hotel and hotel apartments has been projected to be completed in 2.5 years. The main contractor was chosen from a competent list of contracting firms who bid for the project. They have a proven track record of excellence and commitment, that tipped the scales in their favour over other competitors.
The project is a marked departure from the standard architectural designs; the asymmetrical balconies, pointed tapered sides add a layered dimension to the building that both inspires and challenges the developer.
Raj Sahni, founder and chairman of RSG Group of Companies, commented: “The road was long, and it was tough to finalise the main contractor that matched the same level of passion and commitment towards Sabah Rotana. In the end, the search yielded great results in the form of Al Habbai Contracting, whom we welcome to a long partnership with us. As evidenced by their past work, they have validated themselves as the perfect choice for the position. We strongly believe that the product of this collaboration befits the vision that we have for Sabah Rotana.”
Ali Al Habbai, chairman and CEO at Al Habbai Contracting, said: “It will be a privilege to work on this project with RSG Group of Companies, and we are grateful for the trust they have shown in our capabilities. It will serve as an incentive going forward as we strive to not only achieve but surpass their expectations. We have always believed in going the extra mile and will ensure the timely completion of the project with a perfect score on quality as well.”
The project has already received pre-approval under the category rating of five-star and tourism property by the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM).
