The team building Dubai Uptown’s 340m tall tower this week achieved 20 million hours without an injury since work began in January 2019.

Besix Middle East is responsible for engineering and detailed construction for owner Dubai Multi Commodities Center (DMCC), which will use part of the skyscrapers in the Uptown district for its headquarters.

It came out in January this year.

Turner International Middle East is managing the construction of the tower, which was designed by architect Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture.

WSP and Woods Bagot are structural, technical and architectural consultants respectively.

Besix credited the good teamwork in the project management, including DMCC, consultants and subcontractors, for the safety measure.

“Mutual trust, care and respect are the foundations on which Besix Group builds a healthy and safe workplace,” it said. “Besix Group believes that people are the solution and that excellence is achieved through unity and innovation.”

The tower is designed to be a LEED Gold certified building.

Along with the new DMCC home, it will have a hotel, luxury apartments, and 46,000 square meters of Class A office space.
