The Bulgari Resort and Residences Dubai has achieved a safety milestone in project construction, according to a statement by international project management consultancy Faithful+Gould.

The project has exceeded 30 million safe work hours with no lost time to injuries (LTIs) since commencing in September 2014.

“Reaching this significant milestone during a fast track delivery programme demonstrates the high level of performance and commitment of all stakeholders and this is evidenced through this achievement and all the efforts to maintain the integrity of the work environment and meet the international standards for quality, health, safety, environment, and security at the worksites,” said Paul Doherty, Faithful+Gould UAE country director.

Nigel Plumbridge, Faithful+Gould’s project director said: “With 5,500 workers on site each day, our project teams coordinate and chair weekly safety committee inspections and meetings. This is also supported by monthly director level safety walks, attended by the contractor, other consultants and the client. We have encouraged the contractors to be open and honest about safety performance and to always seek opportunities for further improvements.”

The Bulgari Resort and Residences Dubai, situated in a 158,000 square metre residential community on a man-made island, Jumeira Bay, will feature 101 hotel rooms, 20 villas with private pools, 168 serviced one- to three-bed apartments, eight penthouses and 15 mansions. The property is scheduled to open by Q4 2017. Faithful+Gould is providing programme management services to ensure the project is delivered on time and to the client’s objectives.
