Dubai-based interior fit-out company Depa, which fitted out the Burj Khalifa, has announced that it has signed two new contracts in Dubai totalling AED144 million ($39.2 million).

The company said it has won orders to fit-out the Emerald Palace Kempinski Hotel, Palm Jumeirah, and the Novotel World Trade Centre.

"Depa is pleased to see the return of hospitality sector contracts and is excited to be involved with two leading brands. The fit-out work is already under way for the Novotel Hotel and we will begin shortly on the Kempinski," said Nadim Akhras, interim group CEO.

"The new investment upswing in Dubai's hospitality sector is broad-based, with activity rising across small- and large-scale projects. The contracting cycle has started to reach the interior fit-out phase and we are also witnessing numerous hotels wanting to refurbish."

The Emerald Palace Kempinski Hotel is a 100,000 sq m plot of land on the Palm Jumeirah that comprises 345 luxury rooms, of which 36 are suites.

The fit-out contract includes the engineering, manufacturing, delivery and installation for all guest rooms and public areas, including the business centre, ball rooms, lounge and all day dining spaces.

The works will start immediately and the project is expected to be completed by late 2015.

The Novotel World Trade Centre Hotel contract involves the refurbishment, fit-out, furniture and equipment of 412 guest rooms, lift areas, lobbies and corridors. The project is due for completion by January 2015.

Akhras added: "We are executing on our plan to rebuild our backlog with preferred projects and continue to strengthen our position to push on into Q4 and carry the momentum that has seen us sign significant new contracts in our key markets over the last few months."
