Contractors submit proposals for Dubai Properties framework agreements
17 January, 2018 | By COLIN FOREMAN
Dubai Properties has received proposals from contractors for framework agreements that will cover construction work on the local developers’ upcoming projects.
The proposed framework agreements will be used for a wide range of projects that vary in scale and include apartment buildings, villas, hotels and infrastructure.
Once a pool of firms has been selected, Dubai Properties will then select companies to work on individual projects when needed.
Consultants across a variety of disciplines are also signing up to framework agreements with Dubai Properties.
According to regional projects tracker MEED Projects, Dubai Properties has $230m of projects in the pre-execution phase together with $1.8bn of projects that are on hold and could be revived. The developer has $4.2bn of projects in the execution phase. Major projects Dubai Properties has developed in the past include Business Bay, Culture Village and Jumeirah Beach Residence.
The move to establish a framework agreement with contractors is a departure from the traditional method of tendering used by most developers in Dubai and highlights the growing risks that developers face when procuring construction services.
The supply chain has struggled with severe cash flow constraints due to late payment and certification in recent years and some firms are now unable to deliver projects.
