Founded in Dubai in 2007, Beaver Gulf Group is headed by chairman and chief executive officer, Rajesh Kumar Krishna, who is leading the contractor’s revenues to the billion-dirham mark. 

The company is working on Plots 5, 7, and 8 of the Deira Waterfront’s Phase 1; as well as Phases 5 and 6 of Nshama’s Town Square development. 

As of October 2018, the company’s order book included projects worth $1bn (AED4bn), which were due for completion in 2019 and 2020.

In March 2019, Krishna told Construction Week: “We do face challenges at times, and we are not fully insulated from [payment] problems, but we tackle them head-on.”

In January this year, Beaver Gulf Group was named as the main contractor for the various selected plots within the Deira Waterfront master-planned scheme. Krishna told Construction Week at the time that the mixed-use project “features residential, commercial, hospitality, and retail units”. 

According to tender listings platform ProTenders, the contractor is also currently working on Safi Townhouses by developer Nshama, located in Dubailand. The project’s scope of work consists of 314 townhouses offering three- and four-bed units situated within the master development’s Town Square area, near Al Barsha. 

The contractor is also working on a seven-storey, mixed-use, residential and commercial building in Dubai’s Karama.
