Al Fajer's nine-tower Jumeirah Lakes Towers business centre orders £45m of aluminium and glass work

The developer behind the Jumeirah business centre in Dubai has placed orders for aluminium and glass worth $67m (£45m) in total.

Al Fajer Properties is behind the Jumeirah Lakes Towers scheme, which includes a five-floor atrium in the lobbies of its nine towers.

Chinese firm Shenyang Yuanda Aluminium, which worked on the national stadium and the aquatics centre used to host events at last year’s Olympic Games in Beijing, has won a $42m (£28.3m) deal at six of the nine towers being built.

Aluminium and glass work at the remaining three towers will be carried out by Reem Emirates Aluminium, which is based in Abu Dhabi. This deal is worth $24.8m (£16.7m).

The deal is Reem’s first in Dubai, and general manager Derek Bruce said it was looking to use it as a springboard for more work in the emirate.
