Prefabricated building company says it wants to bring its low-cost homes to Dubai
Vekon, an Istanbul-based prefabricated building company, is looking to make its mark in Dubai with its low-cost housing products, a representative said.
The company, which currently operates in over 75 countries, makes prefabricated buildings for construction sites as well as modular office and living spaces. Its products include worker accommodation, site offices and warehouses for the construction industry.
Ahmed Ali, sales engineer at Vekon Qatar, said the company was looking at the Dubai housing market.
“We do low-cost homes around the world. Specifically here in Dubai, we’re looking at entering the housing market. Although we make low-cost homes, we can also make higher quality products depending on the client’s requirements,” he said at The Big 5 exhibition, which started on Monday.
The company already has projects in Qatar related to worker accommodation, Ali added. Vekon’s products are built by one of the holding companies of its parent company Vefa.
Vekon is one of about 3,000 exhibitors at the 2015 edition of The Big 5, which runs from November 23 to 26 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
