Hill bags $2mn Saadiyat Island hotel contract
Hill International has been contracted to provide project management services during construction of a new Saadiyat Island resort development in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
Awarded by the Sheikh Suroor Projects Department on behalf of H.H. Sheikh Suroor Bin Mohammed Al Nahyan, the initial one-year contract has an estimated value to Hill of approximately AED 7mn ($1.9mn), Hill International confirmed.
Saadiyat Island is located just off the coast of Abu Dhabi and is currently undergoing major development, with an approximate completion date of 2020. It will feature various commercial, residential and leisure projects and is expected to become Abu Dhabi’s cultural center.
The island’s cultural district will eventually include eight museums designed by renowned architects such as Jean Nouvel, Tadao Ando, Frank Gehry and Zaha Hadid.
The new Saadiyat Island resort development to be managed by Hill will feature 293 rooms with a built-up area of approximately 113,000 square metres.
“Saadiyat Island will be an incredible destination for visitors to the region,” said Mohammed Al Rais, Regional President (Middle East) for Hill’s Project Management Group.
“This new resort development for H.H. Sheikh Suroor will become one of the premier hospitality destinations on the island. We are very honored to be part of this exciting project,” he added.
