Emrill set to boost UAE’s facilities management sector

SallyHarrisonAlexDaviesEmrillThe UAE-based integrated facilities management (FM) company Emrill has announced a record annual contract wins and renewals of more than US$135mn in 2017

The contracts include the Bvlgari Branded Residence, Mansions and Resort, Marina Gate 1, The Hills, Town Square Dubai and La Mer, among a broad range of industry sectors including aviation, master communities, retail, industrial and residential projects totalling US$67mn.

Renewals totalling US$68mn resulted from a range of existing commercial contracts including DC Aviation Al Futtaim at DWC, Dubai Airport - Terminal 3 and Anantara Hotel Resorts and Spas. Residential contract renewals included towers such as Dubai Marina Towers, Princess Tower and 23 Marina.

Commenting on the current market conditions, Sally Harrison, head of work winning and business development at Emrill, said, “The facilities management industry in the UAE is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 8.51 per cent through to 2021 and we are certainly experiencing the positive effects of an enlarging market as the UAE built environment continues to grow in scale.”

“Although we are observing some price pressure in certain market segments, overall client feedback is that service quality and FM innovation and sustainability initiatives are still important factors when selecting FM providers,” Harrison continued.

Emrill provides a range of sustainability initiatives in the region. The Emrill Energy Performance Contract aims to deliver energy savings of up to 26 per cent and the Community Water Leakage Reduction Initiative aims to reduce unnecessary water leakages by up to 70 per cent, commented Harrison.

Alex Davies, managing director of Emrill, noted, “Through innovation, digital transformation and constantly investing in training and up-skilling our people, we aim to redefine the UAE facilities management experience by firmly keeping client value partnerships and the end-user experience at the core of our value proposition.”

The initiatives are in line with the company’s plan to support economic growth in the UAE and promote the country’s reputation as a world-class business hub and tourist destination.

In early 2018, Emrill launched one of the first innovation and digital transformation initiatives in the UAE to create further efficiencies and savings for its clients.
