Al Mamsha project in full swing
The Sharjah-based Alef Group, a pioneer in developing premier lifestyle communities, destinations, and experiences through investment and strategic joint ventures, hosted a student delegation from the College of Architecture, Art and Design (CAAD) of the American University of Sharjah (AUS) at the Group’s landmark project Al Mamsha. During the visit, the students were briefed on the latest status of the project, where work is proceeding at full tilt as planned to deliver a landmark mixed-use development in Sharjah that brings together a modern living, retail, and leisure in an upscale environment connected with sidewalks and walkways. Director-General of Alef Group, Issa Ataya, pointed out that the students had a valuable opportunity to learn about the on-going construction processes and the finishing material used in constructing Al Mamsha. “They had an overview of the key techniques used in the planning and implementation of the project,” he added. Ataya said that the visit featured knowledge transfer discussions of several important and specialized topics in the engineering field, where Alef Group‘s officials and engineers supervising Al Mamsha, briefed the students on the technical details of the landmark project. The visit also included a tour by the students across the several stages of the project, where they had first-hand knowledge of the architectural plans, designs and latest technical standards applied in executing the project. They were also introduced to ready-made models of the Dhs3 billion project. Al Mamsha is one of the most innovative projects in the UAE in general, and the emirate of Sharjah in particular, offering its residents on-site underground parking with elevator access to the residential floors, community services and retail offerings making it a car-free and safe community.
