Emaar wins maiden Property Management Company of the Year award
Cushman & Wakefield adjudged highly commended in the new category
Emaar Community Management (ECM) won the unanimous vote of the judges enroute becoming the first company to win the Property Management Company of the Year award.
ECM has engaged several FM companies through its community management platform – and the judges recognised ECM for its transparent and fair approach to offering contracts.

Sustainability has been at the heart of all its operations. And campaigns and initiatives on lowering energy demands, awareness drives, use of smart gadgets and devices (such as energy-efficient LEDs, timers, motion sensors, solar panelling etc.) and automated reports to manage environmental and energy issues all play their part in managing its master communities better.
Its performance has had an overreaching effect, as ECM has been appointed to act as consultants for various international and local projects in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and India.
Jaymin Patel, senior association manager, Emaar Community Management said: “In the last year or so, we have put in a lot of effort into understanding the right way to manage facilities, into energy centric facilities management. There has been a lot of learning from the Emaar end, along with hand-to-hand working with our service providers.
