Sweet Homes General Contracting L.L.C (SHGC), the in-house contracting arm of Sweet Homes Holdings and the main contractor for ‘Ajman Uptown’, has completed the concrete pouring on the largest foundation raft within the AED 3.5 billion community project. A total of 6,064 cubic metres of concrete was poured continuously within a 26-hour period to form the substructure of ‘Kentia’, one of the seven commercial towers within the massive master development. Furthermore, the company has revealed that the excavation for the basement of the building was completed within a period of only 2 months.

The concrete pouring on the tower, which is a B+G+4type+HC building that occupies a total plot area of 5,799 sq. m., has been completed using five mobile concrete pumps and a laser level machine. These were fixed by SHGC and the team from Remix Tech, the concrete supplier who sourced the material from two plants in separate areas. The pour was fully supervised by consultant Engr. Adnan Saffarini Office, with SHGC taking the necessary steps to ensure that the ideal concrete temperature was maintained as well as the overall safety of the workers.

“We have been working non-stop to hit the delivery deadline of ‘Ajman Uptown’, and we are leveraging the expertise of our partners to ensure that progress will mirror the targets we have previously set,” said Fawad Sattar Dero, Managing Director, Sweet Homes General Contracting. “The construction milestones we have achieved one after another reiterate our commitment to our investors and stakeholders, and the strength we maintain to deliver on our promise and contribute to the growth of Ajman as a real estate destination in the region.”

Comprised of 1,504 villas, seven commercial and residential towers with a shopping mall, hotels, hospital, two Mosques, club, market and a school, ‘Ajman Uptown’ takes inspiration from classic French architecture with the overall theme ‘L’ Art De Vivre’ or ‘Redefining the Art of Living’. Spread over 4 million square feet of land that is directly accessible from the Emirates Road and adjacent to Emirates City, the project offers 8 different types of two, three and four-bedroom townhouses and exclusively designed five-bedroom VIP villas. Sweet Homes has taken on all aspects of development within ‘Ajman Uptown’, with its construction arm - Sweet Homes General Contracting undertaking the AED 2.2 billion main contract as well as the project’s initial groundworks.

“We are very pleased with the exceptional progress we are making despite the challenges of the economic downturn. We are optimistic that the recovery of the real estate market and the evolution of legislation in Ajman to provide more benefits for investors will have more significant impact to the growth of ‘Ajman Uptown’ as one of the most sought-after communities in the country,” concluded Fahad Sattar Dero, Managing Director, Sweet Homes Holdings.
