Embattled UK construction and services firm Interserve’s claim that it was business as usual after entering a "pre-packed administration" earlier this month has been bolstered by a pair of contract wins in Dubai.Â Â
Yesterday the company said its subsidiary Khansaheb had won a £7m contract to fit out of a group of restaurants and suites in the Wafi Hotel & Mall extension for owner MKM Commercial Holdings.
And last week it announced another £7m design, build and refurbishment contract with Enaba Hospitality, to upgrade the 15-year-old, 255-room Mövenpick Hotel & Apartments in Dubai. This project is also to be carried out by Khansaheb.
At the Wafi fit-out project, Khansaheb will be responsible for the French Restaurant, All Day Dining and the Empire Gastro Bar as well as three suites and the executive lounge.
At Mövenpick Hotel, work will include upgrading the existing guestrooms, suites and corridors and ensuring compliance with the latest regulations in Dubai. The project is expected to be delivered in September 2019.
Jonathan Eveleigh, group business development manager at Khansaheb, said: "The leisure sector in the Middle East is a key sector in Interserve’s long-term strategy, so we are especially thrilled to have been awarded this project and look forward to delivering the work and demonstrating our capabilities in this area."
