Faithful+Gould marks Bulgari Resort safety milestone

DUBAI, June 15, 2017

Faithful+Gould, a leading project management consultancy, said it has achieved a major safety milestone by clocking 30 million safe work hours with no lost time to injuries (LTIs) at the Bulgari Resort and Residences Dubai,  since the project commenced in September 2014.

The project is spearheaded by UAE-based developer Meraas.

Situated on the man-made island, Jumeira Bay, The Bulgari Resort and Residences Dubai is set to be Dubai’s most exclusive residential community. The 1.7-million-sq-ft master development will be home to 101 hotel rooms, 20 villas with private pools, 168 serviced one- to three-bedroom apartments, eight penthouses and 15 mansions.

This incredible safety achievement is a clear indication of Meraas’ commitment to ensuring that safety remains key throughout the project’s life cycle - from project inception and construction to commercial operations, said a top official.

"Safety underpins Faithful+Gould’s core values, and we are firmly committed to maintaining a safe environment on each of our projects and in all our offices," remarked Paul Doherty, the company’s UAE country director.

"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," stated Doherty.

Nigel Plumbridge, the project director, said: "With 5,500 workers on-site each day, our project teams co-ordinate 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," he stated.

"Faithful+Gould is providing programme management services to ensure the project is delivered on time and to the client’s quality objectives. It diligently works to ensure all stakeholders fully integrate an encompassing health and safety culture into all decision-making processes," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
