: Azizi Developments, a leading private developer in the UAE, awarded a major value engineering contract to Salama Structural Engineers, a leading innovator and worldwide professional engineering consulting firm that offers a wide spectrum of progressive engineering solutions.
The contract entails value engineering studies for upcoming projects across Dubai, constituting a set of tasks and deliverables, namely reviewing the design criteria to enhance the overall building performance as well as integrating the COBIAX slab system, post-tensioned slabs and the light-weight and composite panel system by replacing blockwork and plaster for all internal partitions.
Mohamed Ragheb Hussein, Executive Director – Engineering Division at Azizi Development, said: “We're delighted to award this contract to Salama Structural Engineers for several of our upcoming projects across the emirate. Having carefully studied and analysed all the options in the market, Salma emerged as a clear world-class consulting firm that we are confident will deliver on our needs, factoring in its facility programming, master planning, and structural, architectural, interior, and electromechanical design services.”
Riviera is Azizi’s renowned waterfront lifestyle community project located in the heart of MBR City, which, upon its completion, will comprise more than 16,000 residences spread across 71 mid-rise buildings, overlooking an extensive retail boulevard, a canal walk with artisan eateries and boutiques, and Les Jardins — a lush-green social space.
With its strategic location near the upcoming Meydan One Mall and the Meydan Racecourse — home of the Dubai World Cup — as well as Dubai’s major business, leisure and retail hubs, Riviera is one of Azizi Developments’ most sought-after projects. Designed to introduce the French-Mediterranean lifestyle to Dubai, which is not merely about architectural art, but also about a certain ‘joie de vivre’ — a celebration of life and exultation of spirit — Riviera represents a new landmark.
