Hamilton Project Management has picked up the contract to project manage the US $136 million (AED500 million) Prism tower in Dubai’s Business Bay.

Namir Shaffu, president and CEO, Hamilton Project Management, said: “The enabling works, including shoring and excavation, will begin by 15 November.

“The project has already been tendered and is under assessment at the moment.

We have drawn up a shortlist of three local contractors.”

Construction on the project will start by the end of the year and the offices will be ready for occupation by the fourth quarter of 2008.

“The Prism will be built on plot two of Business Bay and will also include three basement levels,” added Shaffu.

Some of Hamilton’s projects in Dubai include the JW Marriott Hotel expansion in Dubai, the 39-storey Kendah House building, the Ismaili Centre, a 20-storey building and Marina Star in Dubai Marina, the Gemini, the Binary and the Prism in Business Bay, the Square Dubai, Hilton Hotel, Doha and Le Meridien Hotel in Mauritius.

The main construction package on The Prism will be awarded next week.
