HLG Contracting has been awarded an AED619 million (US$170 million) contract to build five 16-storey residential towers, by Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC).
The Middle East-based firm, in which CIMIC Group has a 45% stake, will be responsible for constructing the towers’ concrete frames, masonry, facades, fit-out and external works.
Three of the Expo Village structures will be joined by a three-storey podium, with another similar podium connecting the remaining two.
HLG will also be involved with mechanical and electrical systems within the project.
Work on the towers is expected to begin later this month, with completion due by June 2019, in time to host visitors and participants for Expo 2020, which opens in October of that year.
