UAE-based Arabian Construction Company (ACC) has signed an agreement with Emaar Middle East, a subsidiary of Emaar Properties, to develop Emaar Square, a dedicated commercial precinct within the Jeddah Gate in Saudi Arabia.


Fred Durie, CEO of Emaar International, signed the contract with Ziad Najjar, branch manager of ACC-Saudi Arabia. ACC’s undertaking covers three buildings that form part of Emaar Square, with work on the project commencing this summer. Hand-over of the first offices to customers is scheduled for 2016.


“ACC has already partnered with Emaar in UAE, Egypt and other countries in the region and we are delighted to extend our relationship with them to cover their operations in Saudi Arabia. We will be drawing on our expertise in infrastructure, civil works construction and value engineering for the project and are committed to delivering it to the incredibly high standards that Emaar is renowned for,” says Maher Merehbi, CEO, ACC.


Designed to world-class standards, Emaar Square is set to be the most prestigious commercial real estate development in Jeddah and an integral part of Jeddah Gate, Emaar Middle East’s flagship master-planned community in the city.


“Arabian Construction Company has a strong track-record in undertaking large-scale projects and we are delighted to partner with the company to accomplish our new project as per the time schedule,” says Durie.


ACC’s relationship with Emaar has also been extended in its home GCC state of the UAE. The company has been awarded two new Emaar contracts located in the Downtown Burj Khalifa area of Dubai, the details of which are due to be announced shortly.


“ACC’s long track record of delivering premium construction projects in the GCC and wider Middle East makes it one of the leading construction companies in the region. We are extremely happy to be working with Emaar to help create their vision of a prestigious commercial and lifestyle development in Jeddah Gate,” says Najjar.
