ALEC explains how robotics and record-breaking achievements are fueling construction at Marina Gate project
UAE building heavyweight ALEC is making impressive progress on Select Group’s three-tower Marina Gate in Dubai Marina.
The high-end lifestyle project is located in a super-prime site of one of the city’s top residential hubs, and the client has spared no expense on it, with a gross development value of $1bn (AED4bn). ALEC will break its own record for the third time when it tops out Ithra Dubai’s One Za’abeel Tower, with a crane mast height reaching more than 330m.
While this work is impressive, the contractor’s work stands out for more than just its record-breaking equipment applications. Marina Gate is the largest design and build project that the company has ever worked on with its major subsidiaries Alemco – its mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) arm – and ALEC Fitout.
Through greater collaboration, embracing the power of automation, and adopting high-standard management controls like the resolution matrix, ALEC’s work on Marina Gate is impressive for a number of reasons.
