The Habtoor Leighton Group (HLG) has been awarded an AED600 million contract for the construction of a new Emirates Flight Catering facility.
Located in the Dubai Airport precinct, within Cargo Village and adjacent Airport Road, the project involves the construction of an additional building to expand the current Emirates Flight Catering operation, ahead of requirements to meet 2020 demand.
The project includes main building works for the new 55,735sqm facility, in addition to a link bridge and other ancillary buildings – totaling a project size of 62,448sqm. Works will be carried out alongside existing Emirates Flight Catering facilities, adjacent to airside designation.
This is an important project for the Group as it represents repeat business with a key government client who remains one of the region’s most successful and influential entities.
Works are scheduled to commence on site over the coming weeks, with completion anticipated for mid-2016.
