Dubai's Imdaad inks $1.6m FM deal with Emirates Post Group
Imdaad's network operations centre in Jebel Ali, Imtedaad, will be connected to EPG's Umm Ramool facility as part of the extendable one-year contract
Imdaad, a Dubai-based provider of facilities management (FM) services, has been awarded a $1.6m (AED6m) contract by Emirates Post Group (EPG).
EPG's postal operational division and subsidiaries consist of Wall Street Exchange Centre and Electronic Documents Centre, and offer a range of postal, logistic, and specialised financial services.
The one-year integrated FM (IFM) contract is extendable by two years, and spans all of EPG's branches in the UAE.
Imdaad's network operations centre in Jebel Ali, Imtedaad, will be connected to EPG's building in Umm Ramool to implement energy conservation processes.
The contract covers the maintenance of EPG's buildings and facilities, through services encompassing civil works, and electrical, and heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC), and mechanical operations.
Due to commence on 15 June, 2017, the contract will see the mobilisation of more than 70 staff from Imdaad.
Remarking on the contract win, Jamal Abdulla Lootah, group CEO of Imdaad, said: "This partnership illustrates our proven capabilities to roll out quality-driven integrated FM solutions, designed to optimise the reliability of all building services across EPG’s branches throughout the UAE.
"Preventative, including regular maintenance, improves the reliability, efficiency, life span, and operating costs of HVAC and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) systems.
"[This saves] companies considerable amounts of money [and] also encourages a more responsible attitude towards energy management, reduced carbon emissions as well as potential water leaks, which ultimately lowers utility bills."
Sami Mohammed Alkhaja, chief support services offer at EPG, said Imdaad was picked for its experience as both, an FM and energy management specialist.
He added: "We selected Imdaad because we want our customers to be happy when they see our facilities at EPG, where our services are enhanced and the very latest technical solutions are implemented.
"We also want to ensure that our branches operate as energy efficiently as possible and we feel confident that Imdaad has the proficiency to manage this process."
