Construction work commences on Abu Dhabi's biggest labour accommodation

Construction work has begun on the biggest labour accommodation facility in Abu Dhabi, worth Dh.418million, with a capacity to host more than 32,000 workers, supervisors, and technicians. Al Rayan Investments are carrying on this work in the Al Mafraq area of Abu Dhabi, located 45kms away from Abu Dhabi City Center.

The Chairman of Al Rayan Investment Company, Fardan Hassan Al Fardan, told that the labour accommodation is being built based on the directives by the Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of UAE Armed Forces, General Shaikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, for creating a safe healthy environment for all workers across UAE.

The contract of the project has been awarded to Abu Dhabi Supplies and Commercial Services. The project will be constructed over a span of nine months, covering an area of 202,000 square meters. The project will feature six compounds encompassing the main building, ranging from shops, banks, modern hypermarkets, dental clinics, medical clinics, post office, travel agency, mosque, food courts, laundry, parts, public spaces and playgrounds.

Construction will take place in two phases, the firs phase will be complete in February 2008 and the second by April 2008.
