Dubai, UAE, July 12, 2018:  Al Naboodah Construction Group (ANCG), a subsidiary of Al Naboodah Group Enterprises, one of the UAE's oldest and most respected family conglomerates, yesterday celebrated achieving five million man hours worked without a lost time accident at its landmark Dubai Creek Harbour site. 

ANCG is constructing two, 37-storey towers with residential units, penthouses and commercial units, plus external works and landscaping at Creekside Plot 18-A , residential project in the 6km2 Dubai Creek Harbour development by Emaar Properties.

“Projects of this type come with their own unique challenges,” said Moustafa Hassan, Project Director, “due to working at extreme height and the need for getting heavy equipment on high levels. We have reached the 33rd level without any lost time accidents which is quite an achievement on a project of this scale and scope. Even a small stone or tool dropped from such a height could be fatal if it hit someone, so it is a testimony to the training in safety standards instilled in our workforce, and diligence of all our workers that we have not had any lost time injury since the project began in January 2017.”

The landmark achievement was marked by a celebration involving all the workers. Several prizes were distributed including electrical goods with the top prize of a flat screen TV going to one lucky operative. Certificates of achievement were also handed out to personnel who were instrumental in training and supervising staff in order to keep HSE standards high.
  
David Evans, CEO ANCG congratulated the team, saying, “This is a great achievement by all our project personnel and a testament to the diligence of all those on site. We take the safety of all our operatives very seriously and they all receive regular training and are accountable for following appropriate procedures. We spare no cost in providing proper equipment and man hours on training as protecting our workforce is our top priority. This is a commendable milestone but we must not be complacent as there is no finish line in safety. We have to stay vigilant every day.” 

Overall works are on-track with the substructure and superstructure near completion. To date, a total of 70,000 cubic meters of concrete has been poured and 18,000 tonnes of steel used. Structurally, 33 of the 37 floors are complete and one apartment with total fit-out will be finalised this month, ready as a showroom. The entire project is due for completion in mid-2019.
