So as to attain the soonest occupation, the venture might be liable to a staged handover which is right now wanted to begin in August 2013 with extreme fulfillment around March 2014,” he included.

“We will be working nearly with both builders to guarantee consistency, oversee logistics and watchful coordination all around the undertaking. Correspondence and great connections between all stakeholders on the task should be imperative to its fruitful fulfillment.

“To convey this successfully we will deal with the venture with one center group directing both contracts with particular site groups committed to each. This methodology should encourage the prerequisite for steady coordination of the works between all stakeholders.”
