Boulevard Site visit

Members of ACI-KC visited 'The Boulevard' project site on 7th December, 2012.

The visit, which was organized by the Social Committee, commenced with a presentation by Mr. Aziz Mamuji of Gulf Consult, who outlined the background to the project and explained the philosophy on the basis of which the park was planned and designed. He also highlighted the salient design features of the project's many components. The Resident Engineer, Mr. Riad Mardini, then recounted some of the issues and difficulties faced during construction, and responded to questions from the visiting team.

Members were thereafter taken on a tour of the beautifully and extensively landscaped park, and the various buildings. It was a cool clear day, and the project which knits together commercial and recreational activities in a unique setting, looked quite impressive. ACI-KC would like to thank everyone who helped in organizing the visit.
