Khansaheb Business Update

Stephen Flint, group general manager of UAE-based Khansaheb and director of the contractor’s UK-headquartered parent company Interserve, has enjoyed another solid year of business in the Emirates.
During the past 12 months, Khansaheb has completed several notable projects in the UAE, including Dubai Properties’ DoubleTree by Hilton Dubai in Business Bay; and additional phases of Majid Al Futtaim’s Mall of the Emirates capital expenditure (CAPEX) project.
During the coming year, Khansaheb is scheduled to complete works on Serenia Residences, Palma Holding’s 249-unit residential project on Palm Jumeirah; Phase 1 of Majid Al Futtaim’s City Centre Ajman expansion; a 389-key Premier Inn hotel in Al Jaddaf; a set of commercial offices in Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC); and the refurbishment of guestrooms at Jumeirah Group’s Jumeirah Beach Hotel (JBH).
While Flint cites under-capacity within the specialist sub-contracting market and rising prices as imminent challenges, he sees Expo 2020 Dubai as a significant opportunity for Khansaheb.
“The UAE’s focus on Expo 2020 Dubai continues to act as a catalyst for a range of project opportunities across the emirate, with major developments such as Dubai Creek Harbour, Jumeirah Central, and Dubai Hills now in progress,” he explained. “Khansaheb is focussing on these areas, in addition to the numerous other development opportunities in Dubai and the Northern Emirates.”
