Farnek will manage a full suite of hard and soft FM services including, Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP), security services, cleaning, landscaping, pest control and waste management. Over 500 staff have been mobilised as part of the contracts.
Commenting, Farnek CEO, Markus Oberlin said: “These account wins are indicative of the wealth of knowledge we have of the local market and our understanding of our clients and their customers. We have invested significantly into technology and innovation, something which is at the very crux of our offering and is a crucial component of our business strategy success and account wins.”
Farnek’s newly signed contracts include the retention of the three-year Burj Khalifa contract to provide MEP and specialist sub-contractor services such as firefighting.
Farnek has also been successful in renewing its cleaning contract with Oracle. The three-year contract will see 25 staff service the client’s 100,000 sqft state-of-the-art Media City-based commercial buildings.
Within the UAE’s expanding aviation sector, Farnek has renewed a two-year contract with Dubai Airports to continue to provide over 200 members of staff for soft FM services in Terminal 2.

The team will be responsible for residential and office maintenance, including the company’s office in Aldar HQ, where staff will be trained on the strict security controls and standards in place, due to the nature of the company.
Finally, Farnek will add MEP, hard services and specialised systems to its existing Musanada portfolio in Abu Dhabi. For the first time Farnek will be responsible for providing MEP services to sports clubs, recreational facilities and horse racing events, further endorsing the company’s expertise and growth in both hard and soft FM services in the UAE.
