The Administrative Capital Company for Urban Development (ACUD) has announced its decision to launch a competition for engineering consulting offices to participate in the development of proposals and new ideas for the designs of squares and streets in the government and financial districts of the New Administrative Capital.
Khaled El Hosseini, the company’s spokesperson, said, ACUD aims to create a distinctive character in these neighborhoods and reach the best creative proposals in the coming period.
El Hosseini added in press statements that the competition is directed to all Egyptian engineers represented by consultant offices and young graduates. This was confirmed by non-compliance that the participant has a consultant office or a company.
Moreover, he further said that groups of new graduates may participate in the competition provided that the team leader is an architect engineer registered in the Egyptian Engineers Syndicate to increase creativity and urge collective work, and because the New Administrative Capital is Egypt’s future project.
Hosseini noted that the competition will be held under the framework of the state’s interest in providing distinctive spaces for the streets and squares of the capital. ACUD has therefore decided to organise an open competition for designing squares and equipping roads in the capital.
He pointed out that the competition offers financial prizes for the best offers on the project. Moreover, ACUD aims to create a state of prosperity among the architects and artists in the country, and aims to contract the winning designs in preparation for implementation on the ground.
