$22m Musanada contracts for school maintenance, FM
Contracts form part of Abu Dhabi Education Council initiative
The Abu Dhabi General Services Company, Musanada, has awarded three contracts worth $22million for an MEP programme for schools across Abu Dhabi.
The contracts, which span three years, form part of the Abu Dhabi Education Council’s (ADEC) initiative to develop infrastructure in schools. Three specialised companies were selected to maintain schools and educational facilities across the Emirate.
“Musanada has sought the expertise of three leading international companies that are well established in the area of facility management,” said Musanada CEO HE Mohamed Khalifa Al Fahed Al Mehairi.
“The contracts have been awarded to the three companies which we believed will deliver on our commitment to ADEC of providing Abu Dhabi with world class learning environments, and a leading education system by 2030.
“We have carefully selected the new contractors after a thorough examination which has proven their excellence in their own domains and in successfully implementing similar projects in other international markets.”
Brookfield Multiplex will provide services for 112 schools across the cities of Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, while Cofely Besix, will be responsible for the maintenance of 98 schools across the two cities.
The third awarded company, Imdaad Equipment, will offer its services to 114 schools in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and across the Western Region.
Musanada has placed the contractors on a programmed maintenance system that will periodically asses the exact time and cost of each operation, to ensure deadlines and budget requirements are met.
According to Hamad Al Daheri, ADEC director of infrastructure and facilities operations, the council provides environmental elements that are appropriate, safe, clean and stimulating for students.
“Providing such premises is in line with our strategy to provide Abu Dhabi with sustainable development. ADEC conducts periodical maintenance follow-ups, to avoid any problems that may occur in school buildings, ensuring maximum safety and security standards for our students,” he said.
