  • UAE-based leading FM company lands contracts with Oracle, Kings College, Dubai Airports, Burj Khalifa, Dark Matter, Musanada, and the Ministry of Community Development
  • Over 500 staff mobilised to manage services including MEP, cleaning and security

UAE-based facilities management (FM) company and sustainability consultancy Farnek, has been awarded contracts worth over AED115 million from several major organisations and companies throughout Dubai and Abu Dhabi in Q3, including Dubai Airports, the Burj Khalifa, Oracle, Kings College, Dark Matter, Musanada and the Ministry of Community Development.

Over 500 staff have been mobilised as part of the contracts. Farnek will manage a full suite of hard and soft FM services including, Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP), security services, cleaning, landscaping, pest control and waste management.

Commenting, Farnek CEO, Markus Oberlin said: “These account wins are indicative of the wealth of knowledge we have of the local market and our understanding of our clients and their customers. We have invested significantly into technology and innovation, something which is at the very crux of our offering and is a crucial component of our business strategy success and account wins,” added Oberlin.  

Farnek’s newly signed contracts include the retention of the three-year Burj Khalifa contract to provide MEP and specialist sub-contractor services such as firefighting.

“We have provided MEP services to the Burj Khalifa since its launch in 2010 so this new contract will signify a decade of service to one of the most prestigious and recognised buildings in the world and further underscores the confidence they have in our team,” said Oberlin.

Farnek has also been successful in renewing its cleaning contract with Oracle. The three-year contract will see 25 staff service the client’s 100,000 sqft state-of-the-art Media City-based commercial buildings.

Within the UAE’s expanding aviation sector, Farnek has renewed a two-year contract with Dubai Airports to continue to provide over 200 members of staff for soft FM services in Terminal 2.

In the medical sector, Kings College has awarded Farnek the contract to provide MEP and cleaning services to three of their centres in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, including, Abu Dhabi Medical & Surgical Centre, Jumeriah Medical Centre and Marina Medical Centre.

“From a healthcare perspective we are acutely aware of the high hygiene and infection control standards and use our state-of-the-art training centre and knowledge to capitalise on our skills within this area when securing contracts. For other sectors, our BICSc accreditation is an additional international best practice benchmark,” added Oberlin

The Ministry of Community Development has contracted Farnek to mobilise over 100 staff for cleaning services across the UAE in 39 locations including community welfare centres, housing, offices and nursing homes.

In Abu Dhabi, cyber security firm DarkMatter has appointed Farnek for hard and soft FM services including MEP, security and cleaning. The team will be responsible for residential and office maintenance, including the company’s office in Aldar HQ, where staff will be trained on the strict security controls and standards in place, due to the nature of the company.     

Finally, Farnek will add MEP, hard services and specialised systems to its existing Musanada portfolio in Abu Dhabi. For the first time Farnek will be responsible for providing MEP services to sports clubs, recreational facilities and horse racing events, further endorsing the company’s expertise and growth in both hard and soft FM services in the UAE.
