Depa Interiors signs financing worth Dh430m with two banks
Staff Report



Dubai: The Middle East's prominent interior contracting company Depa Interiors LLC, a subsidiary of Depa United Group, yesterday signed a financing agreement with Mashreqbank and HSBC for Dh430 million to finance the Dh597.6 million Burj Dubai contract awarded to it.

The announcement was made at a press conference yesterday attended by Mohannad Sweid, Depa United Group's Chief Executive Officer, Mohammad Al Mulla, chief executive of HSBC Abu Dhabi, and Omar Bouhadiba, head of corporate and investment banking at Mashreqbank, as well as other representatives and officials.

"Depa's strong growth over the past years has always been fuelled by our ability to work with top tier partners across different sectors and business spheres," said Sweid.

"We are very happy to now be associated with two of the top banks operating in the region and on such a prestigious project."

Depa was contracted by the joint venture of Samsung Corporation, Belhasa Six Construct and Arabtec Construction LLC, the main contractor of the Burj Dubai project being developed by Emaar Properties.

Depa will carry out the manufacture, supply, installation, construction and completion of all interior fit-outs for the 899 serviced and residential apartments including corridors, lift lobbies and the amenities levels.

Hmmmmm lots off progres here... we are even at part 29!!
And the tower grows steady and the clok for the Sears tower stands on 11.59 and ticking....

And those mock up windows are already hanging there for a few months. So no wonder that they need a wash. They will be washed with automated machines who are also installed on the Sears tower.

cheers anyone :Cheers:

hmmm...

I was editing height info about Burj Dubai due to vandalism on Wikipedia and decided to go through the "Discussion" section. I found this very interesting entry...

Here are renderings of telescopes we are looking at. http://www.gsmproducts.ca/PAGES%20HT...telescope.html

A question. How do the 705m and 808m plans differ as to the height of the highest occupiable space?

I assume there is a difference, but if there is non, then why get so excited about 705 vs 808m? I still hold the opinion that height above the highest usable (occupiable) space should not count for WTB anyway. To me it's just architectural window dressing.

I'm not sure if I'm the only one who's thinking this, but I think Dubai will have a huge transportation infrastructure problem. I think Dubai would be well served with a light rail system -- monorail or underground metro. I'm not sure whether this is planned yet, or whether they are already working on it. But the sooner the build it, the easier it is.
