MAB Facilities Management (FM) has been awarded the facility management services contract for the Louvre Abu Dhabi by the Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority.

The contract period is five years, and marks a new beginning for MAB, as it is the largest project in its history.

Under the contract, MAB will be responsible for the management and supervision, fire and safety, security, technical maintenance, ICT systems, general administration and cleaning, and visitors reception services.

MAB chief executive officer, Maen Saddeq, said: “MAB is deeply honoured to be a part of this unique and first of its kind project in the UAE. We look forward to setting a new standard of FM services for TCA Abu Dhabi in this most prestigious project.”

Born out of an inter-governmental agreement between Abu Dhabi and France in March 2007, Louvre Abu Dhabi, which is being built on Saadiyat Island, is intended to be a place for cultural and educational exchange.

The museum will be housed inside a structure designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel.
