Ahmad Al Naser, managing director of Drake & Scull Engineering, said: “DSI continues to capitalize on its positive momentum in 2015 with the two project awards worth a combined AED 96.1m ($26.1m) in value.
"The AED55.5m ( ) Abu Dhabi residential development is a reputable project and reinforces our historic association with high-end residential developments in the UAE. It is an important win for us as it will be an exciting addition to Abu Dhabi’s skyline, which remains one of our largest markets where we are currently working on many iconic key projects.
"We are pleased to continue our project winning streak in Kuwait which is a high potential market driven largely by new projects from the private sector and an increase in demand for residential, commercial and retail units. DSE has consolidated its position as Kuwait’s leading engineering firm across multiple sectors and primarily the education, healthcare and commercial sectors. The AED 40.5 Million high end retail shopping mall is an exciting retail project that will not only become a major landmark in Kuwait’s vibrant skyline but will also deliver an unparalleled experience for both retailers and consumers.”
