Managing director
DRA Group

Co-ordinating a team of subcontractors is never easy, which is why Deepak Arora prefers to handle everything in house.

As managing director of the DRA Group of nine companies, Arora’s span of expertise has helped land the company a series of lucrative contracts during an otherwise quiet period for the construction industry.

The companies include City Diamond Contracting, MEPTech, Giant Star Trading, DRA Product Design, DRA Group, DRA Logistics, DRA Properties, DRA International and Al Wahda Contracting.

Arora’s reasoning is simple. Priority lies in the company’s main projects, but each subsidiary company is free to pursue contracts individually.

This means that the parent company not only presents a formidable united front when bidding for major contracts, but its subsidiaries can compete for contracts in their specialist fields.

Arora’s City Diamond Contracting is currently working on Kleindienst’s Heart of Europe project, which, at time of writing, was scheduled to have the first of 20 villas to be built on Germany island completed, and a clubhouse erected on Monte-Carlo island, by the end of the year.
