Drake and Scull International (DSI), has picked up a US $7.9 million (AED29 million) MEP contract for 15 new buildings in Abu Dhabi as it pushes forward with regional expansion plans. GASCO awarded the contract for the design, supply and installation of all internal mechanical and low voltage works on the buildings, including a new main control building at GASCO’s Onshore Gas Development (OGD) III in Habshan. DSI has not yet announced a completion date for the works. Khaldoun Al Tabari, executive director of Drake & Scull International, said: “Abu Dhabi is one of the most important locations for DSI as huge investments are being made on capital intensive projects. “DSI is presently completing the MEP works for different developments in the emirate, well within the time frame and the budget of the contract.” DSI has already completed a $17 million contract to design, supply and install the electro-mechanical works related to an administration complex, accommodation building, police camp and oil spill centre at Al Dhabiyya. Ahmed Al Naser, the newly appointed operations manager for Abu Dhabi, reinforced the company’s commitment to both fast-tracking projects and working to tight project deadlines: “DSI is extremely proud to be associated with these strategic projects in Abu Dhabi. “True to our reputation for timeliness and quality, the contracts are being honoured in a time bound and streamlined fashion.” Drake & Scull has been contracted for numerous projects across the UAE, including a 60,000-tonne cooling plant at Jumeirah Beach Residence and another contract from Dubai Festival City to design, build and operate one of the largest district cooling systems in the Gulf.
