Broadway Malyan has delivered the concept masterplan for a multi-billion dollar scheme involving an extension of Sadr City and the creation of New Sadr City in Iraq.
The project is named 10×10 because of its predicted $10 billion dollar value and 10-year delivery timeframe. As one of the largest projects in Iraq, it is central to the reconstruction of the country.
Director John Turner said: “The completion of the concept masterplan is a major milestone in the creation of a sustainable community with a strong identity for over 500,000 inhabitants and which will ease overcrowding in Sadr City.”
In addition to the concept masterplan, Broadway Malyan has provided implementation tender documentation and detailed sector masterplans, as well as UK training for the client, the Mayoralty of Baghdad.
The practice secured the appointment through an open competition in 2009, following the submission of a proposal in association with DATA Consultants.
The client has invited design and build tenders and is currently assessing submissions. Broadway Malyan is looking to secure further appointments to support the realisation of the project.
