- The concrete tender for the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi was issued in February 2011 and work will commence in the second quarter of 2011. This package encapsulates 162,000 cubic metres of concrete, which will be used for much of the museum’s ‘back of house’ areas, as well as the platform from which the main museum and gallery structures will be built from.
- The placement of 1,400 piles began in August last year by Al Habtoor/HSSG JV. They will be completed by the second quarter of 2011.
- Opening in 2017.
