Bahrain’s Nass eyes Dubai infrastructure projects
Bahrain-headquartered Nass Contracting has revealed plans to break into Dubai’s infrastructure market in early-2017
Nass Contracting has revealed plans to break into Dubai’s infrastructure sector in early-2017.
The construction outfit, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Bahrain’s Nass Corporation, secured its trading licence for infrastructure projects in Dubai earlier this month.
The contractor, which has won several projects in Abu Dhabi during the last two years, told Construction Week that it will engage with Dubai’s major developers.
Stuart Smith, Nass Contracting’s country manager for the UAE, said: “Although we have not yet lined up any projects in Dubai, we will be pursuing infrastructure projects in particular with all the main clients in Dubai.”
Since entering the Abu Dhabi market in 2014, Nass Contracting has won work from Emirates Aluminium (EMAL) in Khalifa Industrial Zone (Kizad), Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) at the Taweelah Alumina Refinery, and Reem Developers at Al Reem Island.
The firm commenced its UAE operations with a staff of seven. Today, Nass Contracting boasts more than 350 workers in the Emirates.
“Our priority for the remainder of this year is to stabilise our existing project base [in the UAE],” said Smith. “We have come a long way in the past 12 months, and we will continue to lay strong foundations in Abu Dhabi.
“Nass Contracting will also introduce itself to Dubai, with a view to breaking through in early-2017,” Smith concluded.
