Doha, Qatar, March 25, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- “My leadership strategy is very simple. – Honest, hard work, attention to detail and quality assurance of the end product. These principles ensure that we continue to build trust with our esteemed clients.” – UCC, CEO Moataz Al Khayyat
The UCC has undertaken a number of substantial and testing projects over the last few years and suffice to say it is understandable how the parent company has become one of the leading contractors within Qatar. UCC’s impressive portfolio boasts such landmarks as the Mall of Qatar, a state of the art hub of commerce that upon completion will stand as the largest centre of its kind within the country. The $820million US Dollar project is set to feature a large luxury hotel, a range of international eateries and over 400 outlets amongst other eye-watering spectacles that appear to have become part and parcel of such a project set in Qatar. Other notable completed projects include The Banana Island Resort by Anantara, Lekhwiya Stadium at Al Duhail, and the full-scale restoration of the Sheraton Doha Hotel and Convention Centre.
UCC’s CEO Moataz Al Khayyat noted:
“We have undertaken a diverse array of projects over the last three years, ranging from palaces, hotels and football stadiums to delicate marine works and expansive island resorts. Currently, UCC has many projects on the drawing board and under tender, ranging from resort complexes such as at Salwa, waterfront developments, football stadia, and of course, the completion within this coming year of one of our flagship properties, the Mall of Qatar.”
Al Khayyat went on to point out that Urbacon is currently in such a position within the highly competitive market due to the commitment both he personally, and his company makes to clients. Ensuring a timely, safe and professional build is the top priority for the company all whilst keeping to a set budget and adhering to the highest of quality standards. “UCC has set itself apart from its peers with its ability to successfully perform and deliver a wide range of diverse projects on a design-build turnkey lump sum basis,” Al Khayyat explained. “UCC has achieved this by employing experienced professional staff at all levels, by building up a substantial in-house workforce of skilled workers, and by developing an extensive procurement chain in the local and international markets.” Commenting on UCC’s rise to the top, Moataz Al Khayyat paid tribute to the company’s well-established heritage, as it is an offshoot of the very successful Al Khayyat Group. “Our motto, ‘We Build Trust,’ in fact, originates from the vision of the Al Khayyat family many years ago when the business was first founded in Syria,” he said. “Throughout the last 30 years, we have maintained this vision, and we as a collective aim to fulfill it with our continued commitment to the requirements of our esteemed clients. UCC is proud to continue to carry forward this legacy.”
Having launched in 2011 and employing a relatively small number of staff the UCC has gone from strength to strength highlighting its employee count exceeds a total of 12,000 men and women to date. Al Khayyat seized the opportunity to open a number of intensively specialised subsidiary companies such as Highness Interiors servicing sprawling palaces and other enterprises that carefully protect and enhance aqua-marines in the province. Mr Al Khayyat is focused on diversifying his portfolio of companies to follow the ideology surrounding the Qatar National Vision 2030. By definition the forward thinking national endeavour is built on the four pillars of economic, social, human and environmental development; all of which Mr. Moataz’s companies currently service making him a key player in the country’s 15 year plan. Al Khayyat explained. “Development aligned with this vision will entail growth in all sectors. Urbacon has already developed from being just a design build turnkey contractor to becoming a diverse portfolio of companies all aligned with the vision for the development of the country for the benefit of its residents.
