Our services at Al Mouj include risk management, value management, procurement options, conceptual/schematic/detail design estimates, providing Bills of Quantities using our in-house specialist software and working closely with the commercial department in preparing tenders and contract award reporting.
We prepare monthly site wide cost reports on all aspects of particular projects and key issues. These services are delivered by the resident team with support when required from our Head Office. MEC has assisted Al Mouj in preparation of development budget plans from ‘master zone’ to ‘individual’ and ‘sub plots’. MEC prepare capital works in progress accruals for the Accounts department, including full end of year accounting. We use our own dedicated in-house software to produce cash flow projections for individual and collections of projects.
Construction was procured by way of tender from a selected tender list.
Over the project duration MEC has worked to successfully close out and agree in excess of 35 Al Mouj final accounts for residential developments (apartments, villas, townhouses) with an approximate value of RO 250 million. These included; marina construction, land reclamation, quay walling, beach reclamation, waterways, pumps, beach wells, hydro bursts etc. approximately RO 45m. Infrastructure works, public realm and landscaping equates to approximately RO 65 million and projects included; chiller plant building; chiller plant network distribution to master plots, energy transfer stations, potable water distribution, treated sewage effluent irrigation, All HV electricity distribution, substations, roads, underground storage tanks, parks, planting, street lighting, water features and children’s play equipment. Retail and leisure developments equated to approximately RO 25 million including retail centre and an eighteen hole, signature (Greg Norman) Golf course, maintenance building and club house.
By our proactive, direct and early intervention, MEC has been able to substantially close out final accounts which may have otherwise resulted in time and cost claims from contractors. We believe a similar approach could be embraced at Naseem A’Sabah, as our philosophy is one of dispute avoidance where appropriate and possible.
