The 120-day contract covers foundation, dewatering, piling, and shoring activities for Gemini’s Symphony – Business Bay
Gemini Property Developers has appointed National Piling as the piling and shoring contractor for Symphony – Business Bay, a 29-storey project it is developing in Dubai.
The UAE-based developer said in a statement that the 120-day contract awarded to National Piling, worth $2.5m, covers foundation, dewatering, piling, and shoring activities.
The developer further revealed that it will be appointing the main contractor for the project during the 120-day period.
Commenting on the appointment, Sudhakar Rao, managing director of Gemini Property Developers, said: “The awarding of the piling and shoring contract comes within weeks after getting the necessary permissions from relevant government authorities, and reflects our determination to carry out the construction works well before the commercial launch of the project.
“This is due to our ethical business policy to build first and then sell to property buyers, as seeing is believing. The construction of Symphony – Business Bay reinforces our faith in [the] Dubai market. It also begins at a time when we are getting ready to deliver our first project, Splendor at MBR City.”
Meanwhile, Cheriyan Alex, chief executive officer of National Piling, said: “We are pleased to support Gemini Property Developers with its new project, Symphony – Business Bay. Our team is already on ground following the ground-breaking ceremony in December, and [we] hope to deliver the project within the construction time frame.”

The property will also feature two basements and a three-level podium for parking, in addition to retail outlets, a rooftop barbeque area, a jogging track, a play area for children, and a gym.
The apartments will range in size from 40m2 to 269m2, and will be equipped with smart home technology, the company added.
