Dutco Styles & Wood has a new management team in place and the market outlook for the region and Dubai in particular, is seen as being at its most positive for a number of years. The team is focusing its efforts on a more selective approach to new business, and said that the success of this has been proven by the recent conversion of its workload pipeline to secured projects.
The total combined value of projects to Dutco Styles & Wood secured since the financial year end is £14m, including one contract for £7.5m. The wins include refurbishment of the four star Al Manzil hotel for the Emaar Hospitality Group Shell, the core fit out of the Jafza Convention Centre’s food court and the conversion of Jumeirah Group’s Barzar restaurant to an American-themed smokehouse restaurant.
CEO Tony Lenehan said: “The scale of the developments we continue to be involved in, coupled with the quality of the brands, demonstrates our established reputation in the marketplace. We continue to see significant momentum in Dubai and are confident that the Group is well placed to secure further high-end projects in the region.”
