Freyssinet to prepare Palm Jumeirah site

24 Jul 13 Nakheel has awarded Freyssinet Gulf a contract for ground improvement work at the site of a AED800m (£142m) retail and entertainment complex complex on Palm Jumeirah in Dubai.

The Pointe at Palm Jumeirah is a 136,000m2 development that will be located at the tip of The Palm, opposite Atlantis.

Freyssinet Gulf is expected to mobilise before the end of this month.  The ground preparation work, including vibro-compaction, topographic survey and factual site investigation work, will take four months, with actual construction planned to begin towards the end of this year for completion in 2016.

The project will contain a range of shopping, dining and entertainment facilities, including a large fountain display.
