Al Futtaim Carillion (AFC), Carillion’s joint venture business in the United Arab Emirates has been awarded two contracts worth a total of $590m. 

Meraas Development, a Dubai-based holding company, has chosen AFC as the preferred bidder for a $350m deal to build a mixed-use development on the Dubai Creek waterfront.  

The project consists of leisure and retail units, underground and multi-storey car parks, three hotels, a mosque, museums, traditional workshops and a market. 

Meraas has also awarded AFC a $240m contract for the construction of "La Mer" on the Palm Jumeirah (pictured).
