Dubai, October 2, 2011
Imdaad, a leading provider of integrated facilities management solutions in the UAE, said it has started construction of its Dh12 million ($3.26 million) complex at Jebel Ali free zone (Jafza) South in Dubai.
The facility is designed to provide maintenance services for Imdaad’s entire fleet of over 150 small, medium and heavy vehicles, said a statement from Imdaad.
The complex, which is being developed on a 30,000 sq m plot, will facilitate all in-house services for denting, painting, welding and tyre maintenance, it stated.
Imdaad further revealed that it has invested over Dh12 million for the first phase of the complex and expects to recover the cost of construction in three years.
The complex, which has been initially built on a 10,000 sq m area of the plot, will be completed by June 2012, said a senior official.
“The construction of the complex will enhance the delivery of premium-quality services, while ensuring that our vehicles are maintained according to strict quality and environmental standards, remarked Jamal Abdulla Lootah, Imdaad CEO.
"Moreover, we have conducted extensive soil test and environmental impact studies for the project, while all the approvals had been received in early 2011," he noted.
He pointed out that Imdaad’s continued success as a facilities management services provider of choice had created new opportunities to further expand its capabilities and add greater value to the portfolio of services.
"The complex likewise underlines our strong commitment to invest in projects that strengthen our competitive advantage in the market," he added.
Lootah said the complex will have ample space for all Imdaad equipments and will be quipped with four wash bays, which have been designed to ensure minimum environmental impact.
It will also adopt recycling and water reuse facilities. The remaining undeveloped area will be used for future expansion, he noted.-TradeArabia News Service
