Emirates Real Estate Corporation (EREC) has awarded Cofely Besix Facility Management (CBFM) a contract to provide hard and civil FM services across its portfolio of buildings.
CBFM will deliver its services to structures located in eight different locations across three emirates in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Ras Al Khaimah.
The FM provider’s service package will include operation and maintenance of electrical systems, HVAC and ventilation maintenance, BMS, fire safety, MEP and water management.
As per the agreement, CBFM will oversee management of several data centres amongst each location, and will devise ways in managing the integration of end-users in various buildings.
Ian Harfield, CEO of Cofely Besix Facility Management, said: “The Emirates Real Estate Corporation rents their buildings to various ministries and government authorities, which means there is a high volume of customers visiting the buildings.”
He added: “There are also various VIP areas dedicated to the managerial level of the ministries including many high profile visitors such as H.H Minister of Foreign Affairs, Education and Justice, hence we need to make sure that all the buildings are maintained to the highest standards.”
Cofely Besix Facility Management is a joint-venture established in 2008 by Cofely Services and the Besix Group. The FM provider currently employs 650 staff members in the UAE and 800 in Qatar.
