City Edge Developments has announced it is contracting with Gama Engineering and Construction Services on construction works for Phase 2 of Etapa project.
The project was launched two years ago by City Edge and is located in the Sheikh Zayed area of West Cairo.
“We have been progressing very rapidly with our construction schedule, and the tender issued for phase two attracted a large number of leading construction companies in the bidding process,” said City Edge CEO Mohamed El-Mikawi. “The contract is valued at EGP 138m and ensures a 12-month construction schedule, which is in line with our aspiration to continue the fast pace of development.”
Gama Construction Chairperson Amr Al-Tawil added, “We look forward to starting the project in partnership with City Edge, in terms of quality specifications and time limitation it will be challenging but we are confident we will deliver on quality and on time as is our standard.”
Al-Tawil also said that the company’s on-site employees and partners are implementing the necessary precautions against the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic to ensure the safety of all personnel.
“We are keen to provide full protection for our workers and partners in all work sites from possible infection, and we’ve set up a number of safety measures such as sanitising gates which workers pass through, hand-sanitisers, gloves, and masks upon entry to the project premises,” El-Mikawi said. “Most importantly we have further distributed the work force across different rotational shifts in order to avoid congestion at construction sites and prevent the spread.”
