The project site, which is located on Sheikh Zayed Road, comprises one of the Convention Centre’s two twin-tower commercial buildings, housing more than 450 offices and spanning a total built up area of 72,200 square metres.
HLG’s scope of works includes completion of the fit-out of one of the twin-towers, in addition to completing associated external road works.
HLG CEO and Managing Director, Mr. José Antonio López-Monís, said the contract with Jafza is of great significance to HLG.
“We are proud to continue our partnership with Jafza on this important project and to conclude one element of what will in time become one of the most successful economic and logistics hubs in the region,” he said.
“HLG is looking forward to delivering this project to Jafza’s high standards and working with Jafza to reach an agreement regarding completion of the remaining elements of the Convention Centre later this year,” Mr Lopez-Monis added.
HLG commenced work on the Jafza One-Jafza Convention Centre Complex in 2007 when the Group first partnered with Jafza, a flagship Economic Zones World Group Company, to deliver the AED1.9 billion project, which includes a state-of-the-art convention centre, hotel, commercial towers and associated exhibition and recreation facilities.
Mrs. Salma Hareb, CEO of Jafza and Economic Zones World, described the agreement as an important milestone for Jafza.
“We are pleased to again partner with our preferred contractor, the Habtoor Leighton Group, to continue with the Jafza One-Jafza Convention Centre’s exciting development plans,” she added.
Work on the commercial tower and external roads has commenced, with completion scheduled for the end of 2014.
