Emirates Facilities Management LLC, a leading provider of integrated facilities management (FM) services, will provide eco-friendly FM solutions to Emirates Transport, the UAE government-owned company mandated to provide transportation and associated maintenance services to federal and local government agencies, as well as the private sector. The arrangement will directly support the goals of Emirates Transport to promote sustainable development across every aspect of its operations.

Under the three year contract, Emirates Facilities Management will cater to 31 Emirates Transport buildings that include offices, garages and warehouses spread across the country.

Emirates Transport’s pioneering transport strategy is developed through the Centre for School Transport network that is spread across 19 business centres, seven subsidiaries and over 30 locations within the UAE. The upkeep of these facilities is integral to the success of the core business. Emirates Facilities Management will efficiently manage this wide portfolio of buildings with customised and world-class health safety and environment (HSE) procedures, round-the-clock assistance, and call centre support.

Jaber Al Ali, General Manager of Emirates Facilities Management, said: “Emirates Facilities Management and Emirates Transport share a key mission – to organise and manage maintenance services and supervise operations in a bid to simplify the work of various federal and local government agencies. Our comprehensive services will seek to complement Emirates Transport’s professional services, in accordance with the highest safety and environmental standards. With our assistance and facilities management expertise, Emirates Transport can ensure that it meets customer requirements, both in terms of environmental safety and efficiency as an integral part of their core offerings.”

Emirates Transport was recently named ‘Best Supplier’ to the Green Economy Supportive Project during the 5th RTA Safety Award 2013 for converting its gasoline powered vehicles to run on compressed natural gas (CNG), in collaboration with ADNOC.

Emirates Facilities Management’s growing portfolio of clients includes the UAE Ministry of Social Affairs, Ministry of Education, Ministry of Finance, Emirates Post, Dubai Health Authority, Etisalat Academy and Emirates Identity Authority. Emirates Facilities Management is one of the few facilities management companies in the country that has the competency to service asset- intensive industries such as utilities, oil and gas, call centres, educational campuses and hospitals.

Emirates Facilities Management employs the state-of-the-art ‘Maximo’ system, which enables effective leveraging, planning and monitoring of vital facilities management tools. Additionally, the team works with Computerised Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS) and Computer Aided Facilities Management (CAFM) to help clients with the upkeep and maintenance of their systems.
