Piling works by German building firm Bauer International FZE have begun for the Louvre Abu Dhabi

A total of 5,638 piles – 4,298 steel and 1,340 concrete – will be installed, totalling 94.2km in length. A substructure contractor will be appointed in May to build the concrete and waterproofing works. The scheme was put out to tender by the Tourism Development & Investment Company, the master developer of Abu Dhabi, in mid-February. A main contractor for the remaining works will be sought later in the year.
