Dubco Construction, a Dubai-based firm, won an AED 194.5 million ($53million) contract to build and maintain homes for the country’s Zayed Housing Program, reported Construction Week Online.

The residential project covers a 900,600 square meter and will feature four-bedroom villas designed according to Mediterranean, modern, Andalusian and Islamic designs said Dr Abdullah bin Mohammed Belhaif Nuaimi, Minister of Infrastructure Development, and chairman of Sheikh Zayed Housing Programme, reported Trade Arabia.

Dubbed the Al Quoz Residential Complex, the project will boast 159 villas located in Dubai’s Al Quoz Area 2, close in proximity to the Burj Khalifa and Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai.

“Under the project, four different models of housing units will be available for the Emirati families. A total of 40 units each will be designed in Mediterranean, modern and Andalusian-style, while 39 homes will be in pure Islamic style,” said Dr. Al Nuaimi.

The site preparation for the project started in May and project is expected to take 20 months to complete.
