The month started off with the UAE’s Majed Hilal Contracting winning a $156m (AED572m) contract to build 11 mid-rise apartment blocks for Azizi Developments.

The Dubai contractor will build the 11 buildings within Phase 4 of the waterfront Azizi Riviera development, a $3.2bn (AED12bn) residential community.

Majed Hilal Contracting will be responsible for developing more than half of the units in the final phase of the Meydan One project.
