New contracts bring company's 2010 project wins to total of AED1.4bn - CEO.
Drake & Scull International (DSI) on Monday said it had won the contract for the complete mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) works for two major projects in Abu Dhabi worth a combined value of AED240m.
“We are very pleased to continuously work on domestic projects in a city that has contributed so greatly to the 40 years of experience which we have gathered in the MEP field,” said Khaldoun Tabari, CEO of DSI.
“We have always seen Abu Dhabi as a lucrative market and our expectations of projects in the pipeline have indeed been fulfilled," he added in a statement.
DSI will begin work immediately on the Saadiyat Beach Apartments Plot SB19 project, a series of beachside apartments, which are being developed by the Tourism Development & Investment Company (TDIC).
The project is scheduled for completion in December 2011 and the scope of work for DSI will include supply, installation, testing and commissioning of the entire electro-mechanical works.
DSI added that it will simultaneously start with the complete MEP works for a prominent governmental building project which will be completed by June 2012.
“These two recent project wins bring the total value of contracts awarded to us this year to AED1.4bn,” added Tabari.
