Facilities services to maintain 650 mosques across Al Ain region

Musanada, the Abu Dhabi General Services company, established by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan in 2007 to support the Emirate’s public sector institutions, has announced that it has identified EMCOR Facilities Services (EFS), as a strategic service provider in supporting a government project.

According to the announcement, EMCOR was awarded a 650-mosque maintenance project worth Dh62 million for a period of three years. The contract, the announcement added, covers the Al Ain region with the overall area falling approximately 30 kilometre short of Fort Hatta, said Musanada.

It explained that EFS’s responsibilities would include management and servicing of the mosques’ MEP equipment, and managing and repairing ancillary work associated with the mosques’ building fabric.

The contract requiring the skills of over 100 tradesmen as well as support staff and functions, commenced on August 1, said the statement.

Commenting on why EMCOR was recognised for this project, an official representative at Musanada said, “We seek to partner with customer-oriented organisations that are experienced in the GCC region and have displayed strong commitment to health and safety initiatives.”

Speaking about bagging the project, EMCOR’s UAE Managing Director, Richard Burl said: “Our solid international knowledge, local experience, highly skilled teams and workforce are what gave EFS the functionality and mobility to begin work in just a few weeks. We are honoured to have been awarded this project, and look forward to working with Musanada.”

At present, EFS reportedly delivers multi-discipline services to 600 projects across the region, valued at Dh1 billion through its regional offices.

According to the announcement, major projects undertaken by EFS include, King Abdullah University for Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia, Jumeirah Lake Towers (JLT) Community in Dubai and the Bahrain Financial Harbour.
