Main contractor appointed for Wadi Walk project

Dhabi Contracting has been appointed as the main contractor for its 'Wadi Walk' project by Ilyas and Mustafa Galadari Group, the owners of City of Arabia, the $5billion residential, commercial, retail and entertainment destination in Dubailand.

The contract was awarded to Dhabi Contracting to build low-rise Mediterranean style apartments and waterfront community in the city, after outbidding four other companies.

With soil-testing, shoring and excavation works already complete, Dhabi Contracting is now mobilizing on-site and is commencing foundation works of the project.

The Managing Director of Dhabi Contracting, Sami Edwards, revealed that with about 1000 workers and 40 engineers on site for Mall of Arabia, the company has now inducted nearly 500 more to workers to build Wadi Walk.

Wadi Walk is a vibrant waterfront community running along a eight-kilometer canal, offering residents with huge range of cafes, restaurants, retail outlets and ample space to stroll and relax.
Acting as the focal point of development, the deep blue colour of the canal will maintain their pristine quality by 11 water filtration plants sunk within the basement. The visitors will be able to sail along and move from Wadi Walk to Mall of Arabia, along the waterway aboarding fleets of water taxis, which are electronically powered to eliminate noise and pollution.

The development has been designed to restrict traffic flow, with cars and other vehicles diverted to the rear of the apartment buildings, where there will be ample parking space for shoppers, diners and residents.
