Al Naboodah launches new facilities management company
New FM company to work on 100 of its own assets to expand future business prospects
UAE-conglomerate Al Naboodah Group Enterprises (ANGE) has launched Al Naboodah Facilities Management.
The new business will sit under Al Naboodah Construction Group (ANCG), a move that supports the group’s ability to self-supply and self-deliver on projects.
Facilities Management (FM) services will complement ANCG’s current portfolio of core services, which includes civil engineering, building and MEP.
Al Naboodah Facilities Management will offer a full suite of property and FM solutions maintaining and optimising more than 100 of its own commercial, residential and industrial assets, it said in a statement.
Senan Al Naboodah, chief executive officer of ANCG, said: “Diversifying our expertise into FM drives Al Naboodah Construction Group’s strategy to be a self-sustaining business.
"The introduction of Al Naboodah Facilities Management will create stronger synergies across the group’s portfolio, while driving our business interests forward into new growth sectors.”
The newly formed FM company will carry out both hard and soft services which includes security, concierge, energy and waste management, landscaping, pest control and water tank cleaning.
Statutory services such as firefighting, fire alarm systems are conveniently self-delivered within ANCG, allowing Al Naboodah Facilities Management the opportunity to provide integrated services offering to clients.
Stephen Bremner, general manager of Al Naboodah Facilities Management said: “The facilities management industry is evolving due to a formalisation of standards, and developers are increasingly understanding the importance of reliability engineering and asset management.”
The business is also aligning with international best practices, including NICEIC, BICSc and SFG20, and deploys CAFM systems across all projects.
