Hydra Properties has announced the selection of Kele Contracting as its lead construction contractor for Hydra Towers, a series of five high-rise buildings in Business Bay, Dubai.
Kele Contracting, which has worked with Hydra Properties on pre-tender construction and planning, has already started work on site, Hydra said in a statement.
