How was it winning the GCC Project of the Year award last year? How has the journey been since then?

Winning the GCC Project of the Year award for our Lapita Dubai parks and resorts project was a great achievement for the company and for the team. It is a top quality project that was completed in a short span of time. It was easily recognised by the judges and clients in the industry. That, by default, puts a lot of responsibility on us to maintain such a high-level standard and we are eager to maintain that leading position through the coming year.

The journey was challenging, because we embarked on a new market and with new clients. We have, in fact, been invited to start direct a dialogue with clients, which is a new trend that we found based on the good reviews and reports we received in the last three to four years.

That again puts quite a lot of ownership on us to perform and maintain a high level of service that we provide to our clients and to the industry. Over and above, most of our existing clients prefer to work with us due to our quality workmanship and completion of projects on time. We always do our best in satisfying our stakeholders and making progress in all our projects.

What are some of your current projects?

We have been growing in size, volume, number of projects and staff. We have increased the number of employees from 700 to above 2,000. We have decided to expand because of the workload we’re taking on board. Our current projects include:

Polo Residence

The Polo Residence is another landmark in addition to the impressive list of Future Metro MEP projects. This development located at Nad Al Shiba, Dubai, comprises the construction of 24 buildings, each with basement, G+4 floors and roof. Future Metro is associated with MAG Group FZ LLC & EG to execute the MEP scope of works.

Zero 6 Al Juraina

Zero 6 Al Juraina, located at Sharjah, is a shopping mall project that is being developed in conjunction with HH Sheikh Khalid Sultan Al Qasimi. The main contractor of this project is Omis and the client is Alef Group, Sharjah. The development comprises a newly built shopping mall with basement, G+1 and roof. This community mall will have retail spaces, cinema, supermarket, medi clinic, nursery, food and beverage, and retail outlets. Zero 6 is intended to be a landmark development within Sharjah that will attract the very best retail tenants.

Damac Akoya Oxygen 450 & 216 Villas

Future Metro is proud to be associated with the Dubai’s first green residential address called the Damac Akoya Oxygen project. This prestigious project is located 25 minutes from the centre of the city along the Umm Suqeim Expressway. The projects consist of five star hospitality, desert-inspired luxury spa, unique yoga enclave, water play fountains, organic fresh market, green dining, school and nurseries, retail and other modern day amenities.

Future Metro MEP scope will have six different kinds of villas totalling 450. We will be the MEP contractor and will collaborate with Commodore Contracting.
