Nurol collects Reem bridges

Nurol Construction and Trading Company has won a US $60.7 million (AED222 million) bridge construction package for Sorouh Real Estate's Shams Abu Dhabi project on Reem Island.

Nurol Construction and Trading Company has won a US $60.7 million (AED222 million) bridge construction package for Sorouh Real Estate's Shams Abu Dhabi project on Reem Island.

The contractor has 640 days to complete the construction of 13 bridges at the $6.8 billion development.

The company fended off competition from 12 other contractors for the package.

The bridges will form part of the loop road bridging 4km of artificial canals and will transport all utility duct banks including gas, power and district cooling.

The project is divided into five neighbourhoods, each with a distinct style, and bridges will be designed to complement the overall aesthetic of each district.

"The concepts for the structures have been developed taking into account the visual impact of the structures," said Mounir Haidar, CEO, Sorouh Real Estate. "The objective is to create a sense of identity for each district by creating a distinctive visual appearance."
