The main building scope for EBS covers deck slabs - first and second podium levels, mezzanine, anf fifth floors and the roof, including the roof for the theatre area, left and right sides roof canopies. The deck slabs - first and second podium levels, and mezzanine level including staircases, steel bridges and sandwich panel roofing, covers the scope of the parking building of the project.
On the key contract win, General Manager Joseph Chidiac said EBS’ efficient production capabilities coupled with technical expertise play a major role in executing a fast-track project like the prosecution building.
"Keeping up with the timeline, rigorous sourcing, production and availability of the materials was a top priority despite challenging business times and the co-ordination between the electro- mechanical, aluminum, glass and steel structure teams clearly reflected our engineering capabilities," observed Chidiac.
"With our strong portfolio of government projects like the Dubai Metro project and the Dubai World Centre Passenger Terminal and Cargo Terminal to name a few, the current project is another addition to the list, reinstating our position as an efficient and reliable partner in the execution of key projects," he added.
According to Chidiac, the project is expected to be finished by December 2021 with the car-parking facility on priority to be completed by the end-year.
