Abu Dhabi-based Bloom Properties awarded the contract to building contractors, Airolink.
Works on the 10-acre site is expected to be completed by July 2018, ahead of the academic year which begins in September. The two schools, which will be located within a ‘super campus’ will have a combined enrollment capacity of up to 4,000 students, the company was quoted saying in a news report.
Facilities between the two schools will include tennis and squash courts, a full soccer pitch with a 400-metre running track, a Learning Resource Centre, a theatre for performances, outdoor pitches, games courts and a swimming pool as well as a 600-seat auditorium and an IAAF standard running track.
The 89,000 sqm campus will also accommodate the Centre of Excellence for Arabic Language, Culture and the Arts.
Airolink is currently constructing a number of projects that are at various stages of development in the UAE and has recently broken ground on a large building project in Dubai.
