Dubai-based Depa, a global leader in interior contracting, said it has secured a Dh574 million ($156 million) fit-out contract for a major government project in Abu Dhabi.
The full scope of work includes the installation of structural steel and architectural woodwork, flooring and carpeting through to decorative supplements, wall coverings and interior lighting fixtures covering a 28,000 sq m area. The project is due for completion in 2015.
Commenting on the win, chairman Hasan Abdullah Ismaik said: "We are delighted to have been selected to work on such a significant project, set to become one of Abu Dhabi’smost iconic landmarks."
"As one of the world’s leading interior contractors, our experience of working on some of the largest and most prestigious buildings in the Mena region and beyond will help us deliver a world-class finish for this important building and further confirm our standing as a thought-after partner providing comprehensive and customized interior contracting solutions for prestigious clients around the globe," he added.
Depa, he said, has a strong track record of engaging in major projects in Abu Dhabi and is currently onsite working on contracts including the Cleveland Clinic, Al Forsan Sport Hotel and the Regent Emirates Pearl.
The new contract win follows closely Depa’s acquisition of the assets of German-based Loher Raumexklusiv's luxury interiors business, through its wholly-owned German subsidiary, Vedder.
Depa has steadily grown and expanded throughout Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. Over the years, it has managed to build up an association with international suppliers and manufacturers, in addition to utilizing Depa’s own in-house manufacturing facilities.
"Depa's superior portfolio of projects illustrates superb skills in combining aesthetic and operational requirements to create the harmonious and complete results for clients," stated Ismaik.
“Our focus on delivering excellence to our clients in a cost-effective and timely manner has made us the largest and most profitable interior contractor and specialist fit-out company in the Middle East and North Africa region, and among the top five in the world,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
