The American Community School of Abu Dhabi (ACS) is a coeducational school for students in grades K-12. ACS is planning to develop a new K-12 campus to accommodate up to 1,600 students on Saadiyat Island, Abu Dhabi, to fulfill the growing demand for American curriculum education in the region.

Abu Dhabi, UAE

Project Scale

350M AED

Project leadership through experience and proven processes.

The new ACS campus is located on a 6-hectare plot and will include a 9,000 sq. m. elementary school building and a 18,200 sq. m. middle and high school building, a 5,500 sq. m. sports center, two swimming pools, two football pitches and onsite parking for up to 185 vehicles.

Colliers Project Leaders is providing owner’s representative and project management services to ACS, from initial design stage, through construction to project handover. As the owner’s representative, our team will ensure that ACS’s best interests are preserved throughout the entire project lifecycle.

As ACS has never undertaken a project of this scale, our initial task involved developing a governance road map specific to the development of the new campus. Our team also ensured a smooth transition from the pre-concept stage, completed in early 2019 under a separate design agreement, to the full design development stage by the lead design consultant.

Colliers Project Leaders has been fantastic at guiding our thinking and overseeing every detail of this project. The Colliers Project Leaders team is critical to our success, our project would not be nearly as far along if the project director was not monitoring every step!”
