Canadian developer, Aakar, has appointed EllisDon Project Management to oversee its US $54.5 million (AED200 million) Canada Business Centre (CBC) Tower in Dubai Business Bay.
EllisDon's role will involve monitoring the progress of the project in conjunction with other consultants appointed by the developer, and ensuring that the project adheres to its predetermined delivery schedule, budget, quality and performance.
EllisDon will provide professional advice to the developer on issues relating to the tower's commercial and technical aspects, while keeping a close watch on the building systems to make sure that they suit the needs of the end user.
The company's focus is to maximise the developer's resources amid the current escalation in the price of construction materials and other services, which are necessary to achieve the tower's designated standard of quality. The company has previously worked on Jumeirah Village South, Jebel Ali Madinat Al Arab and Golden Mile 1, 2 and 3.
The CBC Tower will comprise three basement levels, four podium levels which will include a ground floor, 16 floors of offices and 697m² of retail space at ground level.
The business tower will include conference rooms, business facilities and offices.
