Engineering arm of Dubai-listed firm to undertake mechanical, electrical, and plumbing works on upcoming mixed-use development
Drake & Scull Engineering (DSE) has won an AED290 million ($79 million) contract to undertake mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) works on a high-end mixed-use development in Downtown Dubai.
Under the agreement, DSE will provide detailed MEP works, including supply, installation, testing and commissioning for the project, which is scheduled for completion in 2016.
The new contract brings Drake & Scull International’s total project awards to AED1 billion ($272.2 million) in the first four months of 2015.
Other significant MEP projects DSE has secured recently include a $108 million contract awarded to its joint venture with Habtoor Leighton Specon, and a $91 million contract for a hotel project on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah.
“DSE is hopeful of maintaining its positive momentum by picking up more projects across MENA and Asia in 2015,” said Ahmad Al Naser, managing director, DSE.
“We are also excited about the progress of the UAE’s urban transport projects, including Etihad Rail where DSE is looking to play a vital role.”
