Emrill, a joint venture formed by UK’s Carillion and local firms Emaar and Al-Futtaim, has won a three-year facilities management (FM) contract with Dubai Airports.

Emrill is expected to start immediate deployment of 700 employees to provide integrated cleaning and janitorial services at Terminal 3 and Concourse B and C of the Dubai International airport.

The contract is perhaps the most significant to date for Emrill, which counts Aldar, Etihad Towers, Ramada and International Hotels Group among its current clients.

Dubai Airports accommodated 70 million passengers in 2014. It is the largest transport hub in the Middle East, accommodating nearly as many passengers as all of the airports in Saudi Arabia combined as of 2014. It serves more than 100 airlines flying over 260 destinations globally.

Emrill managing director Jason Ruehland said the contract award was an important win for Emrill. “We are honoured to be awarded the huge task of contributing towards the efficient management of one of the fastest-growing airports in the world,” Ruehland said in a statement.
