Farnek has been awarded new contracts worth over AED157 million (£32 million) from several major organisations throughout Dubai and the United Arab Emirates.
The UAE-based facilities management company and sustainability consultancy’s newly signed contracts include a three-year agreement with The Dubai Mall for soft services across all aspects of the mall including Fashion Avenue and the Leisure and Entertainment areas.
The company will also incorporate a waste management strategy for Dubai Mall, to support this strategy Farnek will utilise research from its shopping mall benchmarking study, the first of its kind in the Middle East, launched earlier this year. The project was designed to evaluate and provide a benchmark for the energy, water and waste performance of each mall – with the objective of determining effective ways to reduce their impact on the environment and to save money on their utility bills.
In addition to the Dubai Mall, Farnek will also be providing FM services to Emaar’s newly opened Springs Souk. The year-long contract will cover all MEP, specialist cleaning services and defect liability period (DLP) management for the entire community centre which includes retail, F&B outlets and a cinema.
Within the aviation sector, Farnek has signed a three-year contract with Dubai Airports to provide highly skilled technical manpower to both Dubai Airport and Al Maktoum International Airport, located at Dubai World Central, which will initially see 350 staff supporting operations from an engineering perspective.
In the financial sector, RAKBANK has awarded Farnek a two-year contract to carry out soft services for 38 branches across the UAE, in addition to its current contract for its head offices located in Ras Al Khaimah and Dubai Silicon Oasis.
In Dubai South, Farnek will deliver an end-to-end service to MAG 5 Boulevard, by providing an integrated facilities management and home maintenance solution.
Farnek will be responsible for cleaning, security and DLP management in the common areas, while its home maintenance division, Hitches & Glitches, will provide snagging, apartment handover and DLP management to over 500 apartments.
Finally, Farnek will add to its existing Musanada portfolio in Abu Dhabi with an appointment by Abu Dhabi Municipality for a four-year contract to provide MEP services and managing agent services.
