CHEC Nabs Falcon Island Dredging Contract

China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) has won a $40.8 million (AED150 million) contract for the marine and infrastructure works at Al Hamra’s Falcon Island project in Ras Al Khaimah, the UAE’s most northern emirate.

Designed to house the first LEED Platinum Certified real estate of its kind in the Gulf, Falcon Island, will feature 150 of the most exquisite villas and mansions, complete with European architecture and interiors that represent the pinnacle of luxury living.

A central canal, described by Al Hamra Real Estate General Manager Benoy Kurien as a ‘little piece of Venice in the Middle East’, will split the island in two, and is one of a number of the natural island’s signature features that will be developed as part of this capital project.
