Egypt’s Engineering Consulting Bureau (ECB) has contracted with Arabia Holding to manage the development of Sun Capital project in the Sixth of October City, west Cairo.
The Chairperson of the ECB, Mohamed Abdel Ghany, said that his bureau manages the implementation of the project and coordinates between parties involved in the implementation, including consultants and contracting companies. He also noted that the idea of project management is based on the implementation of the project with the required quality and its delivery on time at an appropriate cost.
The Sun Capital project is located on an area of 557 feddan in the Sixth of October city. It is developed by Arabia Holding, in partnership with the ministry of housing, and includes various activities such as a hotel, an educational, administrative and commercial centre as well as a residential area. Additionally, Arabia has simultaneously begun the construction works in about 120 residential buildings.
Arabia signed a number of contracts with international companies for the project’s development, including the contract with Fairmont International and Intercontinental Hotels Group to manage three hotels within the project, as well as contracting with Proton International to manage a medical center inside the project.
Moreover, the ECB is designing and supervising the implementation of several infrastructure projects in Cairo, Giza, and the New Administrative Capital (NAC), noted Abdel Ghany.
