Collective 2.0 is an exciting new living concept for Dubai. Situated alongside Dubai Hills Boulevard at the heart of Dubai Hills Estate, Collective 2.0 connects with the community’s retail areas, parks, hospitals, schools and other facilities whilst allowing convenient access for the whole of Dubai. Collective 2.0’s apartments are targeted to a youthful audience, accommodating residents in a collaborative environment which encourages social interaction as well as delivering excellent amenities for work, study and relaxation. Active lifestyles are encouraged throughout Dubai Hills Estate, and Collective 2.0 is no different, with open-plan internal spaces complemented by gyms, games areas, outdoor lounges and the development’s own communal swimming pool. With Downtown Dubai only 15 minutes’ drive away, Collective 2.0’s 1 and 2-bedroom apartments make a unique base for those living, working and enjoying Dubai and Dubai Hills Estate.
Collective 2.0 is a unique living concept that Omnium is proud to have delivered for Emaar and its new residents at Dubai Hills Estate. The master plan will create a fantastic place to live, work and visit, and Collective 2.0 adds a new dimension to the accommodation offering in this community, with collaborative, interactive and lifestyle-focused apartments that promote wellness.
Already firmly established at Dubai Hills Estate in our role as Executive QS across the whole master plan development, Omnium was appointed in 2018 to deliver pre and post contract Cost Consultancy and QS services to Collective 2.0. Comprising two towers of 16 floors, plus podium and ground floor retail areas, outdoor communal spaces and landscaping, Collective 2.0 was to be developed in line with Dubai Hills Estate’s modern and sustainable values, connecting residents with their surroundings and providing the highest standards of amenities and facilities for a youthful, professional and creative audience. Based on site at Dubai Hills Estate, our Director-led Omnium team enjoys exceptional residential sector experience and understanding in Dubai, and ease of access to our large Cost Planning team, headquartered locally, ensures efficiently-managed QS services delivered in tune with our client’s unique project vision and commercial interests.
Omnium’s partnership-centred ethos in our commercial management of Collective 2.0 established robust budgeting, complemented by our Cost Planning team’s latest benchmarking techniques to ensure accuracy throughout. Value engineering and competitive procurement ensured carefully-costed deliverables whilst always maintaining the quality and premier-lifestyle values that our client is renowned for. Our team’s residential sector experience in particular brought specialist skills gained on projects such as Sky View and Burj Vista to Collective 2.0, supported by sizeable infrastructure expertise which connected this development with the Dubai Hills Estate master plan. Omnium benefits from exceptional understanding of the Dubai Hills Estate development, allowing us to work efficiently from the outset of our appointment and delivering this exciting project for young professionals in line with our client’s launch schedules.
