Contract is for one year with the provision to extend it for an additional two years
Dubai-based integrated facilities management (FM) firm Imdaad has just won an AED6 million ($1.6m) contract to provide integrated FM services to the Emirates Post Group (EPG).
Under the terms of the contract, Imdaad will be responsible for the maintenance of buildings and facilities, civil works, electrical, and HVAC mechanical operations across the UAE.
EPG manages postal operations, as well as its Wall Street Exchange Centre and Electronic Documents Centre subsidiaries. Through these subsidiaries, the company offers a range of postal, logistic and specialised financial services.
“This partnership illustrates our proven capabilities to roll out quality-driven integrated FM solutions, designed to optimise the reliability of all building services, across EPG’s branches throughout the UAE,” commented Jamal Abdulla Lootah, group CEO of Imdaad.
“Preventative, including regular maintenance improves the reliability, efficiency, lifespan and operating costs of HVAC and MEP, saving companies considerable amounts of money. It also encourages a more responsible attitude towards energy management, reducing carbon emissions as well as potential water leaks, which ultimately lower utility bills,” added Lootah.
Imdaad says it has a strategic approach to sustainability, and claims its work will ‘go a long way to helping the EPG comply with the Dubai Plan 2021, to ensure Dubai is a smart and sustainable city’.
Sami Mohammed Alkhaja, chief support services officer at EPG commented, “It was vital for us to partner with a trusted FM company with a proven track record, not only in integrated facilities management, but also in energy management. We selected Imdaad because we want our customers to be happy when they see our facilities at EPG, where our services are enhanced and the very latest technical solutions are implemented to ensure our properties are always kept to the very highest of standards. We also want to ensure that our branches operate as energy efficiently as possible and we feel confident that Imdaad has the proficiency to manage this process.”
The contract commences on June 15, and will call for the attention of 70 of Imdaad’s staff.
