Imdaad to maintain all Dubai mosques
FM solutions provider to increase revenue by 15%
Imdaad, which provides integrated facilities management solutions in the UAE, is planning to increase its revenues by 15% in 2011.
According to reports, the company wants to take advantage of facilities management services for completed projects and those under construction.
Recent studies show the facilities management sector in GCC is realising its projected annual growth rate of 15% with an estimated total value reaching USD 10 billion by 2012.
The UAE facilities management services accounts for 66% of total revenues in the region.
Imdaad recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Department of Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities (DIACA) to maintain all mosques in Dubai.
The MoU was signed by Dr Hamad Bin Al Sheikh Ahmed Al Shaibani, director general of DIACA, and Jamal Abdulla Lootah, Imdaad's CEO.
"Imdaad remains highly flexible to address new architectural and urban development challenges as it continues to expand its range of integrated services, making it a key player in this vital sector,” Dr. Hamad Bin Al Sheikh Ahmed Al Shaibani reportedly said.
Al Shaibani said the MoU was an important step to support the department in fulfilling its responsibilities, especially those related to the provision of maintenance services for mosques in Dubai, which in turn will help realise the department goals in line with Dubai's Government vision and strategy.
"Following this agreement with DIACA, we are eager to provide all necessary maintenance services to keep every mosque in excellent condition and cater the requirements of the worshipers," said Lootah.
He added Imdaad has been implementing an expansion plan over the past two years, having introduced new services and various innovations, while expanding the company's scope of work to reach all market segments in UAE.
He said the company achieved impressive results over the past year in spite of the global economic recession by focusing on the concept of sustainable development and implementing environment-friendly practices in its projects.
Imdaad’s clients include Emaar, Nakheel, Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZA), DP World-UAE, Dubai Customs, Limitless, Tamweel and Barclays Bank.
It has a large number of projects such as the Burj Khalifa; The Palm Jumeirah; Greens; Atlantis The Palm hotel; Jumeirah Golf Estates; International City; Jebel Ali Port; Jebel Ali Free Zone; Wasl – Asset Management Group, subsidiary of Dubai Properties; and several shopping malls including Ibn Battuta Mall.
The company also launched the "Home Pro House Maintenance", a specialised business unit that provides customers with a service program for house maintenance across the UAE.
