The project, which will have the world’s tallest commercial tower as its centrepiece will also include smart transport and traffic flow solutions.

Leading providers of PRINCE2® project management training, ILX, have commented on the news that US based corporation, Turner, has been chosen to lead the Burj 2020 District Project, a development that is set to enhance commercial trade and enterprise in Dubai.

The DMCC, the Government of Dubai authority for commodities trade and enterprise, announced on Wednesday that the US-based firm Turner International has been appointed to project manage the Burj 2020 District development in Dubai. Due to an increase in demand for commercial property from a number of different large corporations and multi-national businesses, the project goals are to transform the region into the ultimate destination for multinational companies.

The project, which will have the world’s tallest commercial tower as its centrepiece will also include smart transport and traffic flow solutions. Turner will be constructing the building in the centre of Dubai in the close vicinity of cargo facilities, ports, airports and some of the busiest metro stations in the region. Eventually, Burj 2020 will be one of the most connected commercial hubs across the Arab world.

Ahmed Bin Sulayem, the executive chairman of DMCC said: ‘Turner has a strong track record in managing and delivering large and complex projects, while at the same time embracing innovative ideas and new technologies. Together we will create the optimal environment for trade and enterprise with a world-class commercial district that brings together retail, residential, business and lifestyle services.’

As specialists in project management training, ILX take a keen interest in industry relevant news. Head of Global Marketing at ILX, Kevin Tewis, has released a statement following the news: ‘The Burj 2020 District is a project management contract that is certainly not for the faint hearted. With such a huge development scheme ahead, Turner’s ambition needs to be reflected throughout the entire project management team.

‘As a construction corporation, Turner has led many large projects of a similar nature. Their approach supports an emphasis on structure and practicality and it is this that has led them to secure one of the biggest construction projects of our time. Dubai has been an up and coming commercial centre for the past decade and this project emphasises the city’s ambition to be one of the best. If the correct protocols and processes are followed by all parties involved, Burj 2020 is sure to be a great success.’
