Joannou & Paraskevaides (J&P), a Cypriot building, civil and electromechanical engineering contractor, has been awarded the construction and infrastructure works contract for the entire 63,677-sq-m site of The Address Fujairah Resort + Spa by Eagle Hills Abu Dhabi, a leading real estate investment and development company in the UAE.

The announcement marked the ground-breaking of the luxury hotel and residential development, representing a significant milestone in the progress of the project in Sharm, Fujairah.

The Address Fujairah Resort + Spa, which is scheduled for completion by 2019, is a luxury development comprising 196 rooms with a range of five-star amenities and four residential buildings that include 172 branded apartments, five beach villas and five garden villas. The development also features a 500-m promenade, beach access and a plaza.

Since the project was unveiled in April 2016, Eagle Hills has completed the grading and marine works at the site.
