HLS has been appointed under a contract of US$ 26.7 million (OMR 10.3 million) by Leighton Middle East, the Habtoor Leighton Group’s (HLG) Omani arm, to execute the complete MEP project on a hotel at the Saraya Bandar Jissah complex near Muscat. The scope of works on the five-star, 206-room hotel includes fire fighting, extra low voltage and fuel handling systems.

The Habtoor Leighton Group (HLG) also awarded HLS a US$ 10.1 million (AED 37 million) deal to carry out the MEP works associated with Abu Dhabi International Airport Company’s (ADAC) Midfield Terminal central utility plant buildings. HLS will provide the core MEP works for generator transformer buildings, water fire pump houses, switching and distribution substations, administration buildings and guard houses.

HLS also secured a US$ 10.6 million (AED 39 million) contract for the MEP works on the Hub Zero Family Entertainment Centre, part of Meraas’ City Walk development in Downtown Dubai. The fast-track project, being built by a Besix-Orascom joint venture (JV) and managed by Samsung C&T, is scheduled for completion in January 2015.

In response to the Oman award, Thrasos Thrasyvoulou, HLS managing director said: “These are very exciting times for our company. The Saraya Bandar Jissah hotel project marks our entry in Oman, a market of high prospects in the coming years as the country endeavours to become a MICE [Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions] hub.

"We are very proud to be associated with such a prestigious project and look forward to working closely with the client and main contractor to deliver the project to the highest quality. The award of this luxury five-star Jumeirah hotel adds to our unparalleled experience in delivering hospitality establishments of the highest standard."

Thrasyvoulou also expressed his satisfaction at his company’s continued success in its home market of the UAE and his appreciation of the trust shown in HLS by the clients involved.

“We are equally proud of our two new project awards in the UAE – one in Dubai and one in Abu Dhabi – that cement HLS’ reputation in delivering premier projects for prime clients such as ADAC and Meraas.

“The Hub Zero is a fast-track project to be delivered in less than a year for a strategic client. We look forward to working closely with Meraas, Samsung C&T and the Besix-Orascom JV in what we hope is the first project of many projects and in establishing a strong long-term relationship with the esteemed developer.

“We are honoured for the trust shown in our company by a reputable government organisation such as ADAC in Abu Dhabi and we look forward to working closely with them and the main contractor in delivering the project to the highest quality.

"We would like this to be the stepping stone to getting involved in more phases around the Midfield Terminal area in the years to come.”
