Badr Group awards ‘The Links’ construction contract to UCC

New Integrated Tourism Complex (ITC) allows all nationalities to own competitively priced freehold property in the desirable Al Irfan precinct.

Following completion of the extensive substructure works, Badr Group, the company developing The Links Integrated Tourism Complex in Muscat have awarded the main contract for construction to Unique Contracting Company, an excellent grade building and construction company, renowned for their quality and timely delivery of large scale projects across Oman.

Yasir Sulaiman, Director of Badr Group, commented on the appointment, “We are very pleased to be working with Unique Construction Company as their projects around the Sultanate are a reflection of their expertise and attention to detail. We are confident they will do an outstanding job to deliver The Links to our exacting standards.”

The appointment of Unique Construction Company for The Links comes after a competitive tender process and subsequent negotiation for the turn-key construction contract.

Located in the recently announced ‘New Downtown’ area of Al Irfan, The Links is set to be a new and iconic development comprised of residential apartments, recreational facilities, in addition to an extensive array of restaurants and shops. The development has full Integrated Tourism Complex (ITC) status and is part of the master-planned Muscat Hills development, offering the opportunity for all nationalities to own competitively priced freehold property in the desirable Al Irfan precinct.

Manilal Limbani, Managing Director of Unique Construction Company added, “The turn-key contract award comprises all preparation and infrastructure works, and the construction of the The Links at Muscat Hills, this includes the residences, restaurants and retail zone, recreation areas and integrated parking zones, all designed by international consultants to a very high standard. We are proud to be awarded this contract and look forward to working with Badr Group on this landmark project.”

Savills Oman, the leading global real estate company are exclusive sales agents for The Links at Muscat Hills. Christopher Steel, Managing Partner at Savills Oman shared his thoughts on this awarding of the construction contract. He said, “The appointment of Unique Construction Company is a milestone in the project’s timeline following the extremely positive reception from the public for the first phase of sales, which all sold within a matter of weeks. We are very much looking forward to soon releasing the final apartments for sale which will provide buyers with some exciting home options, including some stunning sky homes with their own private pools.”

Highlighting the affordable pricing range, the apartments on offer at The Links will see no compromise in size or quality. With close attention to detail and contemporary urban design, the development upon completion will be managed to the highest international standards. The Links will offer exclusive concierge services, organised recreational areas, while preventative maintenance programs will be in place to ensure the long term value enhancement of owners’ properties at The Links.

Christopher Steel added, “This project is unique given the broad variety of apartments, from one to three bedrooms – all built around either a picturesque courtyard or landscaped swimming pool, available at prices significantly below those seen before in the ITC segment. With a projected hand-over date pegged at late 2017, we are certain that existing and future property purchasers in the Sultanate will see that once again, the Badr Group is committed to the very highest quality levels by appointing such a highly regarded company as Unique for the construction of this iconic development.”
