Construction management services for the Greene Avenue real estate development project in New Sohag have been awarded to national firm Sabbour Consulting.

Egyptian design and construction management services firm Sabbour Consulting has been awarded the contract to oversee the Greene Avenue real estate development project in New Sohag. Situated less than 20 kilometres from Sohag city in Upper Egypt, the Ebny Real Estate development will comprise a mix of residential apartments and villas, hotel accommodation, and a shopping mall.

“The contract with Sabbour Consulting comes with the aim of achieving the goals that the company aspires to, in creating a unique and distinctive real estate product of civilised and social value, one that contributes positively and effectively in developing New Sohag,” said Abdallah Kamel, Chief Executive Officer of Ebny Real Estate, which gained approval for the development late last year.

Touted as a solution to overpopulation and high-density living in the Sohag governorate, the 20 feddan (a local unit of measurement roughly equivalent to an acre) Green Avenue project will also feature wide landscaped promenades, lakes, bike-ways, gardens and green fields along with amazing all-round views, described in promotional materials as the ultimate in urban elegance.

According to reports, Sabbour Consulting will supervise the development across each of its phases, with the firm’s Vice President Omar Sabbour stating that the consultancy will be tasked with ensuring that the works are carried out in line with approved engineering designs (awarded to ACE Moharram Bakhoum), along with supervising the construction process and maintaining timetables.

Founded in 1957 with over 2,000 projects now under its belt and a workforce in excess of 1,000 engineers, Sabbour is noted for a number of large-scale projects, including complex work on the construction of two lines of the Cairo underground metro, renovation and structural repair work on the Cairo Plaza towers, and design duties for The Council of Ministers Building project in New Alamen City.

On being awarded the Greene Avenue construction management contract, Sabbour also stated that the Cairo-based consultancy is looking forward to supervising further development projects in other cities and governorates across Egypt, in particular in areas outside of the major cities of Cairo and Alexandria which have historically been under-served by private sector investment.
