Location: Abu Dhabi, UAE
In January 2011, Cumming’s international division was awarded an assignment to provide project and cost management services on this new Abu Dhabi project. The 23-story “business and leisure” development – which is located in Abu Dhabi’s Central Business District, an exclusive location that includes the city’s private airport, high-end retail stores and restaurants, and other desirable businesses – includes five themed restaurants and bars, a fitness center with swimming pool, a sauna, indoor and outdoor lounges, a state-of-the-art business center with multiple conference and meeting rooms, and many other guest amenities.
Throughout the project, Cumming leveraged its strong leadership skills to manage the project schedule and mitigate technical and logistical issues. Cumming also skillfully managed urban site access, ensured that all storage needs were met, and resolved kitchen, laundry, and ID issues. These successful measures kept the project on track. The project’s Building Completion Certificate was issued on March 11, 2014. The project was completed without delays, at or above quality expectations, and with 5% saving from the initial project budget.
