Debuting in the Power 100 list this year is Rami Al Qaisi, who sits at the helm of Dubai-based RAQ Contracting.

Under Al Qaisi’s leadership, the contractor has been working on projects with repeating clients including DP World, Dubai Silicon Oasis, Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), Wasl Properties, among others.

The contractor closed 2019 having achieved its set targets; and the company expects to close 2020 with revenues topping $265.4m (AED975m).

In the past 12 months, the contractor delivered Dubai Airport Free Zone’s commercial complex as well as 13-building project for Jebel Ali Free Zone.

Additionally, the contractor also commenced implementation works on nine Expo 2020 Dubai projects; RTA bus stations; a consolidated engineering complex for Galadari Engineering Works; and a ‘built-to-suit’ project for Jaguar Land Rover.

Al Qaisi says that one of the main challenges the contractor faced was while working on Expo 2020 Dubai projects.

The RAQ team encountered language barriers that made communication difficult, but the company managed it and went on to “fast-track the projects”.
