Dubai, UAE, 17th Oct 2017: Al Shirawi FM, the UAE’s leading single-source provider of Integrated Facilities Management, has been awarded yet another prestigious contract. The new award for the provision of IFM services for the International Humanitarian City (IHC) in Dubai Industrial City reflects the company’s growing reputation in the commercial facilities sector.

Al Shirawi FM’s scope of work under the new contract covers complete MEP, Specialised Services Management and Housekeeping.

This vast mixed-use development comprises several commercial buildings, over 1000 warehouses, 120 showrooms, 22 labour camps and the entire infrastructure that surrounds it.

The Business Village of the Department of Economic Development, where Al Shirawi has been providing services for more than seven years, and the Dubai Chamber of Commerce & Industries’ (DCCI) property are some of the company’s other active contracts that highlight its experience in managing highly sensitive commercial environments with high-profile visitors and tenants.

Navin Valrani, CEO, Al Shirawi FM, said: “Al Shirawi FM is clearly emerging as one of the largest FM companies in the industry today with several projects added to our portfolio recently. Our strength is our qualified workforce. We are agile and able to quickly mobilise our staff, which is in excess of 2,000, for large-scale commercial developments such as IHC.”

The IHC serves as a commercial and logistics centre for the distribution of humanitarian aid and hosts over nine United Nations agencies, over 40 NGOs, several Intergovernmental organisations and commercial entities. It accepts delegates from across the globe, on a daily basis.
