Engineering subsidiary to deliver MEP works for high-rise tower and two district cooling plants
The engineering subsidiary of the Dubai-listed Drake & Scull International says it has won contracts worth a combined AED 131 million ($36m) for two UAE-based projects.
Drake & Scull Engineering (DSE) says it has been commissioned to deliver mechanical and lighting works for a mixed-use residential and commercial tower in Abu Dhabi, and undertake heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) works for two district cooling plants in Dubai.
The Abu Dhabi contract will see DSE install HVAC, building management, fire fighting, water supply, drainage systems, and lighting fixtures in the Abu Dhabi tower. Work on the project has already commenced with an estimated handover scheduled for 2018.
DSE is due to commence work on the two district cooling plants in Dubai in January, according to the statement.
The company did not name the projects or give more specifics about the owners.
The deals bring the firm’s total project awards in 2015 to be valued at AED 2.4 billion ($653m), according to a statement to the Dubai Financial Market.
“The two projects will be a vital addition to our current projects backlog which stood at AED 12.35 billion as of 30th September 2015,” said Ahmad Al Naser, Managing Director of Drake & Scull Engineering.
