After being accolade as one of the world’s most eventful construction industries and witnessing a successful property boom up to 2009, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the confederation of seven Emirates in the Gulf and one of the strongest nations in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), witnessed a sharp tumble triggered by a debt mounting by leading construction companies which had invested heavily in building construction projects amid the boom and were unable to meet financial commitments. Dubai led the downfall in the markets with property prices and rents crashing as much as 60 percent in 2010 followed by a hasty bailout by Abu Dhabi, the richest of the Emirates. A year later as Dubai begins to recover on a fragile path of restarting projects shelved by it and restructuring to attract investments afresh, Abu Dhabi which had embarked on an equally ambitious plan under its Vision 2030 to try to outpace Dubai on the global map has also met a stumbling block. Raising debt has caused the Emirate to tighten its purse strings and relook construction projects with a fine eye on the budget and spending resulting in delays and cancellations on a large scale in government backed projects in the Emirate.

The UAE Building Construction Industry witnessed contract awards worth an estimated US$ 8,698 million in 2011 and the industry is expected to witness building contract awards worth US$ 10,834 million in 2012.
