First Bahrain has appointed Mace to project manage its signature US $450 million (BHD169 million) development, located in the heart of Bahrain's Seef District.
Mace will be responsible for managing construction planning, project schedules, operational and construction issues and procurement strategy. The 21,000m² development will feature a hospitality complex, and office and residential towers.
"A development as large as our Seef project needs to be carefully managed," said Amin A. Al Arrayed, general manager of First Bahrain.
"Working with the best people is paramount to success and we believe Mace is the right partner with a level of understanding and experience to bring the development to fruition.
We now have a team in place that can deliver a world class facility. Our next step will be to work alongside them on the appointment of the lead contractors and subcontractors.
Mace Group has worked on the Venetian Macau, the London Eye, the British Museum and Singapore Sands.
The Seef development is one of the most pioneering and innovative developments in Bahrain and we look forward to successfully working with First Bahrain over the next three years to ensure the on-time completion of the project," said Andrew Johnson, director of Mace in Bahrain.For all the latest construction news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
