KIZAD showcases KIZAD Construction City for ‘resilient’ market
Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD) showcased its expanded product offerings available at KIZAD Construction City, during The Big 5 in Dubai.
KIZAD Construction City is a dedicated cluster for the manufacture, import, storage and distribution of construction materials in the UAE.
The new offerings were introduced at an event hosted by KIZAD during The Big 5, the largest construction and building materials exhibition in the region.
Following the launch of KIZAD Construction City earlier this year, the 500,000 square metres of allotted land available for open yard storage facilities was sold out within six months.
“The UAE construction sector remains resilient despite market changes and challenges caused by external factors,” said KIZAD CEO Samir Chaturvedi. “Construction companies are ramping up the development of tourism-related projects, commercial infrastructure, and transportation development, and need cost-effective, interconnected construction infrastructure to support this growth.”
“We have expanded our product offering space at KIZAD Construction City in response to this demand. We look forward to welcoming new occupants,” he added.
The next phase of KIZAD Construction City offers pre-built warehouses and Light Industrial Units (LIUs), which are suitable for manufacturing, processing, assembling, and fabrication work.
Additional land has been allocated for open yard storage areas of any scale, bonded areas with easy duty arrangements and industrial and logistics operations.
“Businesses can set up in KIZAD Construction City within a few days,” Chaturvedi added. “This kind of service enables them to appropriately focus time and money on executing construction project and growing their businesses.”
Since its launch in April 2018, several major construction companies have already set up shop in KIZAD Construction City. In October 2018, Amana Contracting & Steel Buildings established a 50,000 sqm storage and logistics facility to house and distribute construction products to large-scale industrial, modular and commercial projects across the UAE and wider region.
Businesses in KIZAD Construction City also benefit from access to the fast-growing and semi-automated Khalifa Port, which serves 25 of the world’s major shipping lines with connections to 70 global ports. More connections are expected with the addition of the upcoming COSCO Shipping Ports (CSP) terminal.
