UAE-based total facilities management company, Farnek, has been awarded a one-year FM contract for the upmarket Al Rabiah development in Khalifa City A.
Managed by First Gulf Properties, the compound encompasses 62 high end residential villa units and will include an outdoor swimming pool, a fitness centre and a tennis court.
The contract, which starts immediately, will see Farnek provide a range of services including all mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) requirements, general cleaning, waste management, pest control, management of the Defects Liability Period (DLP) and swimming pool cleaning. A dedicated team of Farnek employees will also be on site to provide lifeguard services, gym instruction, concierge duties and other soft FM services.
Speaking about the contract, Markus Oberlin, CEO of Farnek said: “Our reputation has been built on our commitment and ability to deliver quality services and expertise in both core FM services as well as energy saving and waste management, something community managers and residents alike are demanding alongside more traditional MEP services.”
