UAE private villa sector sees increase in FM jobs
Belcare has seen a 100% increase in business over the past year
The facilities management division of Dubai-based contractor Belhasa Projects, Belcare, has reported a 100% increase in business from UAE's private villa sector.
The company said that business from the division has doubled in the past year, driven by demand from owners of private villas in Dubai for facilities management services besides maintenance works for swimming pools and landscaping.
Jaideep Mathur, business unit head of Belcare, said: “Although the company has been providing swimming pool and landscape maintenance services for more than 30 years, Belcare was started only three years ago to service villas in gated communities and select locations in Dubai.
He added: "While the majority of the customers have annual maintenance contracts with us, we also take up one-off jobs in certain areas.
"In the coming months, we are also embarking on an awareness campaign to reach out to more customers.”
The firm has also undergone a corporate identity change, involving a revamped logo, a change of livery on its fleet of vehicless and the launch of a 24-hour customer helpline.
