Transguard cleans highest restaurant in the world
Contract sees pre-clean of At:mosphere, Level 122 in the Burj Khalifa
The Transguard Group, an Emirates Group company, has won a raft of FM contracts worth millions of dollars, to provide security guards, housekeepers, kitchen staff and pool attendants for various companies across the UAE.
Contracts include providing almost 60 staff, for a range of services across the housekeeping, food and beverage and recreational areas at the Yas Hotel, Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.
Transguard is also providing stewards to restaurants in The Palace, The Old Town, Downtown Dubai.
FM security has recently been awarded two new contracts. Fujairah Asia Power Company (FAPCO) to supply security guards for its $2.8 billion Fujairah F2 Plant, which is a greenfield power generation and seawater desalination plant, near Khor Fakkan.
It has also won a contract from Emaar to provide security guards for the Dubai Mall leisure and entertainment areas.
“One of our more interesting wins was a contract to undertake the pre-opening deep clean of At:mosphere, the highest restaurant in the world in Burj Khalifa, which is located on Level 122,” said Mike Kitchen, head of FM Services, Transguard.
“These contracts were awarded through the normal tendering process and are further evidence of the impressive contract portfolio within Transguard’s FM Services Division. Our operational teams within both sectors are now busy preparing mobilisation and deployment plans and we look forward to building on these successes over the coming months,” added Kitchen.
Last year Transguard signed a contract with the Dubai Airport Freezone to expand and upgrade its existing security systems, including its access control systems, perimeter intruder detection, automated vehicle identification and visitor management systems.
“Many organisations in the UAE are finding out just how cost effective outsourcing can be. Contracts are flexible and clients know they are hiring a team of skilled staff trained to the highest standards, without any of the time consuming human resource issues such as visas, accommodation and transport,” said Kitchen.
That includes another Transguard contract win to provide onsite security at the Expo Centre Sharjah, which has given the centre’s marketing team an unexpected boost.
