UAE-based facilities management (FM) firm Farnek has been awarded a five-year contract by Dubai Airports, the operator of Dubai International Airport (DXB) — the world's busiest airport — and Dubai World Central (DWC), to deploy 800 cleaning staff at Terminals 1 and 2, Concourse D, and in the cargo and logistics areas at DXB and DWC.

As part of the contract, Farnek will carry out cleaning management activities for landside and airside facilities, including passenger and stakeholder areas.

Additionally, the firm will manage trolley services for passenger baggage at DWC.

Speaking about the contract win, director of soft FM at Farnek, Julian Khalil, said: “Being awarded this contract in the face of intense competition speaks volumes for our innovative approach to utilising technology and sustainability in our day to day service offering.”

Khalil added that the company — which has been certified to the CIMS-GB cleaning industry management standard for green buildings  — will use its smart watch technology that is used to provide services in remote areas.

Commenting on Farnek’s contract, head of facility care at Dubai Airports, Dorothee Stein, said: “Farnek has been a preferred partner since 2014 and has a very clear understanding of our requirements."

In a statement, Farnek said that the CIMS-GB rating helped its customers secure points under the Leed for Existing Buildings and Leed Operations and Maintenance green building rating system.
