The Al Fara'a Group's construction services have supported many of
the UAE's major public and private sector initiatives over the past 25 years.
This unmatched record of successful projects has enabled the Group to develop
its own best practice knowledge base, systems and procedures. As a result, our
intellectual capital assets and skills are second to none. This is reflected in
the strengths we bring to our construction services.
In addition, our depth of infrastructure ensures substantial savings in time and
supply costs for our clients. Our strengths in managing cross-functional teams
and complex operational clusters enable us to procure, supply and build to any
requirement at competitive prices, leveraging efficiencies arising from our
economies of scale.
The Group's reputation and ability to deliver premium client value is based on
its technical expertise, project management methodologies and the capabilities
of the staff.
Each project begins with feasibility reports and value analysis. This enables us
to establish project costs, assess risks, and find the best client value
propositions. This phase is followed - depending on the work package - with
design decisions, procurement, execution and commissioning. At each phase
quality management is achieved through adherence to Total Quality Management
principles and practices, along with ISO and HSAS standards for safety and
Design and build capability
The Group's professional expertise and corporate asset base gives us the scope
to carry out design and build projects, giving clients the benefit of working
with a single entity. This reduces potential conflict to a minimum and provides
a single point of responsibility for project delivery. The Group's sole source
responsibility includes quality, costs and schedules, and the achievement of
multiple, parallel objectives.
A key component in the Al Fara'a Group's success to date has been the way we
improve the value of client deliverables through best practice value
engineering. One of our core strengths, we have developed this practice and
built it into our corporate knowledge base to ensure that the maximum value is
delivered in any project. Our job plans consist of the following steps:
Preparation, information and analysis - identifying crit ical client
requirements for both project deliverables and the work package,
Creation - generating design and work scope alternatives for line items
Evaluation - assessment of each alternative for impacts such as cost
effectiveness, practicality, quality and fitness to purpose
Development - development of full-scale alternative work packages
Presentation - presentation to the client
Follow-up - further modifications and implementation
The result is cost optimization without compromising deliverable quality and
Our experience gives us virtually unique insights into the challenges of
achieving project milestones in dynamic, changing markets where conditions and
value chain linkages fluctuate significantly over project lifetimes. Our
project teams, based on a matrix configuration of disciplines and business and
operational specialisations, are expert at risk management, forecasting,
estimating and project costing. This ensures that construction projects are
fairly valued, and any potential cost savings are passed on to our clients.
