Faithful+Gould was commissioned by Al Diya Hospitality Investment LLC to provide full cost management services for the Rotana Hotel and Beach Resort, located on the North Beach District of Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi.
Recommencing the project in mid 2013 with a new team of professional consultants engaged by the client, Faithful+Gould had to initiate the reactivation of all parts of the project in a very short and challenging timeframe.
Understandably the developer and hotel operator are keen for this project to be completed as soon as possible and have fixed the opening date in anticipation. In order to attain the proposed timescales Faithful+Gould, in collaboration with the project team, introduced a fast track strategic procurement route, with the enabling works package contractor procured early under a “re-measurement” type of contract.
The main works package was tendered in two stages, with an element of 'design and build' for specific parts of building elements, to achieve the agreed program dates, and also utilise the contractors’ expertise and knowledge.
