The project, for Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank, is due to begin immediately and will be completed within 18 months.
HLG will be responsible for the construction of two towers comprising ground floor, mezzanine level and 12 upper floors, as well as four levels of basement parking.
A section of the ground floor will house the Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank’s flagship retail branch, with the remaining floor area built as shell and core to house additional retail tenants.
Al Habtoor Leighton Group CEO and Managing Director Laurie Voyer welcomed today’s announcement as another boost for the Group’s work in hand.
“Al Habtoor Leighton Group has a strong reputation for delivering high quality building projects within the UAE and Abu Dhabi remains a key market for us,” he said.
“This latest contract award adds to our work in hand in the UAE capital and we look forward to working with the Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank to deliver their new headquarters on Old Airport Road,” he added.
HLG was last month awarded the 2.2 billion Mafraq Hospital project in joint venture with Murray and Roberts for SEHA, the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company.
The Group is also currently working on high profile projects in Abu Dhabi including the Capital Gate tower, Zayed University and the Arzanah Medical Complex.
