standards of construction. Bayt Al Khidma will also manage the public spaces and island infrastructure.
With the Bayt Al Khidma as lead house, three project developers will develop Al Reem Island into a further district of Abu Dhabi. Various centers with residential and office
buildings for some 300,000 inhabitants will be built on a 864-hectare site north-east of the United Arab Emirate's capital of Abu Dhabi. Drees & Sommer Gulf has been commissioned
to undertake the entire program and project management for development of the island's external and internal infrastructure. All infrastructure is to be completed by the end

islands at various places.
