Contractors.Direct, digital startup company that facilitates stakeholders’ access to pre-qualified contractors in the commercial fit-out sector, has collaborated with Dubai Multi Commodities Centre Authority (DMCC) to provide its free zone tenants with the option to streamline the commercial fit-out process.
DMCC customers and tenants that select a qualified contractor from the platform will be eligible to apply for project financing for as much as $952,899 (AED3.5m) and spread the cost of their project over three years.
Speaking about the collaboration, executive director - property, DMCC, Paul Ashton, said: “DMCC is committed to providing its new and existing member companies with comprehensive property solutions. The collaboration with Contractors.Direct will deliver greater value to our customers by expanding the variety of property solutions available to them. The platform will offer a smart, quick and reliable tool that will guide our customers in their search for fitout services."
Contractors.Direct, which is a DMCC company, aims to simplify the process of choosing a contractor by providing a suite of certified and qualified entities to choose from and qualifying the business’ project requirements to ensure that the opportunity is viable for both parties.
Commenting on the company's collaborative efforts with DMCC, founder and chief executive officer of Contractors.Direct, David Cook, said: "Being able to advise and help companies make better informed decisions when choosing contractors will dramatically reduce project risk. Combined with the ability to spread the cost of the project over three years, business owners can find themselves with the opportunity to benefit from a compelling offer and safeguard their investment into their new office space.
Providing the opportunity to businesses to grow or reshape sustainably especially given the current economic climate is necessary. By using our platform to facilitate their project, these companies will be able to avail contents insurance as a value-added benefit."
