In working with BUTEC, we are capable of adding significant value to the region’s future power, water and oil & gas initiatives.”

Speaking on behalf of BUTEC, Tony Hanna, general manager, said: “In view of ALEC’s extensive experience on major regional projects, such as Dubai International Airport Concourses A & D with the associated rail link and upgrade of Terminal 1, the Dubai Marina Mall and most recently, One Za’abeel, and to BUTEC’s strong design-build capabilities in the industrial sectors, this partnership is structured to complement our respective strengths, and to create a stronger value proposition for our clients.”
