Al Fajer Properties (AFP) announced orders worth AED 245 million (US$66.8m) for aluminum and glass for its world class Jumeirah Business Centre (JBC) towers projects.

AFP is the premier developer in the Dubai World DMCC Jumeirah Lakes Towers (JLT) community and is the only developer to include a 5 floor atrium within the lobbies of its towers. JBC, situated within a free-zone, offers high end commercial properties attracting both large local companies and multi-national organizations from around the world.

In line with Dubai´s vision for greener more environmentally friendly buildings, AFP is also pleased to announce that by using the latest technologies and materials, its latest towers will be in compliance with the Green Building Regulations promoting a brighter, cleaner Dubai.

Work is well underway on its Phase 1 projects with aluminum and glass materials expected to arrive early February allowing cladding to start immediately. For Phase 2 (including the Ebony and Ivory project - a themed series of 2 all white and 1 all black specialty glass cladded collection of towers) the excavation, dewatering, shoring and piling has been completed and the green consultant has recently been appointed to ensure all requirements of the Environment, Health and Safety department are met.

Under the terms of the order, AFP has placed a contract value of approximately AED 154 million (c.US$42m) with Shenyang Yuanda Aluminum Industry Engineering Co. Ltd. (Dubai Branch) for six of its nine towers. The contract for the remaining three towers in the office chain series has been awarded to Reem Emirates Aluminium at an estimated contract value of AED 91 million (c.US$24.8m).

Commenting on the JBC order, Mr. Wang Weiyuan, the Marketing Director of Yuanda Aluminium, said: "To enter into the Middle Eastern and Gulf market with such a high profile project as well as working with the quality of a company such as AFP is a very important opportunity for Yuanda Aluminium. We look forward to continuing our success in what is one of the most exciting property regions in the world."

Mr. Derek Bruce, the General Manager of Reem Emirates Abu Dhabi also expressed his delight at winning the contract with AFP as this will be their first major landmark project in Dubai, giving them the opportunity to breakthrough and develop a base in the Dubai market. 

AFP reaffirmed its commitment to delivering the highest standards of quality and excellence in line with the reputation of Dubai, highlighting the city as one adhering to the highest standards of excellence in construction.
