UAE-based facilities management company Farnek has secured a three-year contract to provide services for some of the buildings in the Dubai Developments portfolio, including 140-serviced apartments at the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).

The firm will deliver cleaning and specialist services, as well as heating, ventilation, air conditioning and mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) for at least four facilities.

In a statement on Wednesday, the company said it will deploy more than 100 staff and technicians to deliver the scope of work.

“This is our first contract with Dubai Developments and we are looking forward to a long and mutually beneficial working relationship, well beyond the initial three years,” said Markus Oberlin, CEO of Farnek.

The buildings that are now under Farnek’s remit include the 72-storey residential Blue Tower on Shaikh Zayed Road; the residential segment of Al Murooj Complex in DIFC, which covers more than 140 serviced apartments and associated public areas; the Village Mall in Jumeirah and the fully commercial Al Hudaiba Award Complex in Bur Dubai, which comprises nine floors over three blocks.

Dubai Developments is a privately held development company established by His Highness Shaikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the UAE minister of finance and deputy ruler of Dubai.
