Facilities management company Farnek has signed two new multi-million dollar contracts with global database software leader Oracle and UAE-based Place Management, to provide cleaning, maintenance and support staff at key locations in Dubai
The contract with Oracle’s Middle East head office, located in Dubai Internet City, is for three years and includes housekeeping services, the provision of office attendants and customer-facing office staff.
“Oracle is one of the world’s largest multinational corporations and our experience working with similarly high profile clients means that we have a thorough understanding of the operational requirements,” said Markus Oberlin, CEO, Farnek. Calling the Oracle contract special, he said the company “will also be providing front-of-house staff for the Oracle ‘O Bar’, where VIP clients and guests are hosted, and we will put in place a team of experienced staff members with a hospitality background.”
The one-year contract with strata company, Place Management, will cover total facility management requirements for its Global Lakeview Tower building in the Jumeirah Lake Towers area of Dubai, including mechanical, electrical and plumbing services; preventive maintenance strategies; general cleaning; façade maintenance; and lifeguard services.
“Our integrated service capabilities will support Place Management’s commitment to ensuring that tenants are guaranteed the highest quality environment, and that building standards are brought up to the highest level in line with the client’s brand positioning,” said Oberlin.
The agreements will engage around 75 of Farnek’s cleaning, maintenance and service staff. Farnek uses a range of eco-friendly chemicals for more than 80 per cent of its cleaning activities, which reduces water consumption and carbon emissions.
