Scope of Work


This job entailed the construction of the main kitchen that serves the palace of Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, in addition to the administration and accommodation buildings and 10 chalets, all built within the residential compound.

The kitchen is equipped to serve large quantities of many cuisines. It is complete with water, chemical, firefighting, and sprinkler systems. All finishes are made according to the recommended health and hygiene standards.

The administration building, used by the palace and facilities management teams, has high quality finishing.

All buildings have a decorative pre-cast compound wall that isolates them from other areas.

The service block is equipped with garages, car washing bays and maintenance facilities. Bigger storage areas for a variety of uses were also designed as a part of the facilities. A separate electrical sub-station with a standby generator was also included in the design.

The external tiled roads are intended to offer an organized and controlled access to all facilities.
