Despite the slowdown in the region, Ahmed said Interserve FM has signed a few big contracts.

“In the UAE, one of our big contract wins was with Musanada, where we mobilised two of the clusters making is one of their largest FM providers for Musanada’s government buildings,” Ahmed said.

In terms of Saudi Arabia’s potential in FM, Ahmed added: “Saudi Arabia is lacking, as compared to the UAE, is in the level of outsourcing in FM and the use of integrated FM suppliers. Doing proper maintenance of their buildings and realising the value of the investment in their buildings.
