“Two to three erecting teams were simultaneously working on site,” said operations manager in charge of the project Bassem Kini from NFT, who added that while one team was doing the assembling of masts, the other was doing the installation. This coordination was orchestrated by the operations manager to ensure NFT met the deadline of the JV. “The erection went smoothly thanks to the coordination and support of the site team.”

According to a representative of the JV, everyone working together ensured this high-risk activity was completed safely.

NFT said that it will continue to support the project with operators, spare parts, and technical services to ensure the mall is completed efficiently and on time.
