Najmat Residential Tower
Located on Reem Island in Abu Dhabi, the Najmat Residential Tower project consists of Tower C18 for Union National Bank and Tower C21 for Al Wifaq Finance Company.
The building is a prominent addition to the skyline of the island. Najmat Tower creates a lively ground plane, with two double-height retail podiums that connect to the pedestrian boulevard beside the canal. The towers offer a combination of luxurious one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments with roof terraces, a panoramic swimming pool and a spa.
The project comprises two separate towers with three basements, two podiums, ground floor and 24 floors with 400 residential apartment units over a total built-up area of approximately 92,000m2.
Currie & Brown was appointed to provide post-contract, project management, cost and contract management services for the project.
We were invited by the client to take over the project and cost management services from the existing consultant, who had made a strategic decision to withdraw from the UAE market. We delivered an active cost control and value engineering approach throughout the duration of the project. We also quickly established and maintained communication between all existing parties to ensure delivery of the project in accordance with the client's expectations.
Currie & Brown strengthened the project team and developed a strategy to meet and exceed client expectations, managing time, cost, quality and scope.
By effective programme management Currie & Brown oversaw the mitigation of contractor delays, which proved effective in reducing potential impact to completion while maintaining the quality of the works and contract cost.
