Emrill wins Dubai maintenance contract
Dubai, February 20, 2012
Emrill, a leading Facilities Management company in the UAE, has signed a framework agreement with top real estate agency Allsopp & Allsopp to provide maintenance for its properties in Dubai.
As per the deal, Emrill’s home maintenance division MPlus+ will support Allsopp & Allsopp’s recently launched property management division, specially designed to cater to the needs of landlords who are based overseas or do not have the time to manage their properties in Dubai.
Emrill said the contract includes maintenance services for apartments, villas and townhouses with air conditioning, electrical and plumbing maintenance, reactive repairs and one off works including painting, re-decorating and cleaning.
As part of the deal, Emrill will provide a dedicated online portal for Allsopp and Allsopp and its customers, which will allow service requests to be placed and tracked online, provide instant updates as recorded by Emrill’s field teams and maintain a full history of discussions for future reference, it added.
Ben Churchill, managing director of Emrill said, 'This first-of-its-kind engagement, between a leading real estate management company and a top FM company, will set a precedent for the standard of property management and maintenance services, currently offered by real estate management companies.'
Since opening in 2008, Allsopp & Allsopp has raised the bar for real estate agency standards in Dubai, through traditional and transparent estate agency protocols, said a senior official.
On the contract, Carl Allsopp, managing director, Allsopp & Allsopp said, 'With this shared vision and Emrill’s proven world class FM services, we are delighted to be able to offer our customers a superior maintenance service and innovative online solutions through MPlus+.'
Operating with UK standards, Allsopp & Allsopp’s Sales and Lettings divisions have seen their market share grow threefold, he stated.
In a market where Property Management is not yet commonly known, Allsopp & Allsopp has released several unrivalled management packages to make a landlord’s life easier.
Emrill has a workforce of over 4000 skilled staff that support its vast portfolio of clients from all business and commerce sectors, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
