By Staff

Drake & Scull Engineering (DSE), the engineering subsidiary of construction major Drake & Scull International (DSI), has won a Dh198 million Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) contract on an upcoming hotel and serviced apartment complex.

Construction work on the hotel complex has commenced and completion is targetted for 2017.

Drake & Scull Engineering will deliver its MEP services for five hospitality buildings ranging between 15 and 19 floors, featuring a hotel and serviced apartments, a ballroom and an attached café; a marina, including four footbridges and one vehicular bridge; and hard and soft landscaping works.

Ahmad Al Naser, managing director of Drake & Scull Engineering, said: “DSE has started 2015 on a very positive note, after a highly successful 2014 where we picked up nearly Dh5.5 billion worth of projects across Mena and Asia… The hotel complex is an ambitious project that will enable us to showcase DSE’s exceptional engineering expertise and help augment Dubai’s hospitality and MICE portfolio. The UAE represents one of our biggest markets and so we anticipate further growth here.”
