ALDAR Properties has formed oa joint venture management contracting company with construction group Besix.

The new company will be based in Abu Dhabi and will support ALDAR with delivery of its projects.

ALDAR has over US $60 billion worth of developments and the largest land bank in Abu Dhabi.

Besix was formed through a joint venture of Belgium's Six Construct and the local Belhasa. Six Construct has already worked on infrastructure projects with ALDAR.

Besix is one of the trio building the Burj Dubai. The company also built the new Garhoud Bridge.

This is the second major contractor that ALDAR has partnered with. In November 2006 the company joined forces with the UK's Laing O'Rourke to deliver its Al Raha Beach projects.
