Emad Azmy is an Egyptian civil engineer who co-founded Al Shafar General Contracting with chairman Mohamed Seif Bin Shafar in 1989.

The firm started off working on low-rise buildings, but within six years had gained the necessary approvals from Dubai Municipality to build towers and it has gained a reputation for delivering large-scale projects ever since.

The company has evolved into a group with 16 other operating divisions, including firms in the MEP, interiors, civils and building materials markets.

The company has completed more than 270 projects including the Vision Tower, Emirates Crown and Business Executive Towers in Dubai, as well as developer Damac’s first residential tower in Abu Dhabi, known as Oceanscape.

It is currently on site on a $100m-plus project for al Habtoor Group to build a new Waldorf Astoria hotel on the Palm Jumeirah and has recently announced a two-year contract to build 21 new low-rise apartment blocks in the Jumeirah district of Dubai for Meraas Holding.

The company said the latest award “stands as a witness to the growing confidence in the Dubai real estate market and to ASGC’s capabilities in delivering complex projects”.
