Projects underscore GLI’s significant contributions to the GCC hospitality sector
Greenline Interiors (GLI), part of the Greenline Group, has won the AED 140 million contracts for the Wafi Hotel project in Dubai and Shaza Hotel in Riyadh. The projects will see GLI bringing its superior fit-out services to Riyadh and Dubai, where the company has also recently been awarded the Bay View Hotel and Jewel of the Creek projects.
Samir Badro, Chairman and CEO of GLI, commented: “We are pleased to have been awarded the Wafi Hotel and Shaza Hotel contracts as they give us new footholds at both home and abroad. Shaza Hotel will strengthen our GCC presence by bringing our expertise to Riyadh, while Wafi Hotel will allow us to continue to support the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, by contributing to Dubai’s thriving hospitality sector. Our proven expertise in craftsmanship and high quality fit-out services has earned us a substantial and growing portfolio of hotel projects, and we are delighted to be adding to this.”
The Wafi Hotel project will be completed in two phases, with phase one consisting of 475 hotel rooms and 97 apartments, while phase two has 26 suites, 2 ambassador suites and 1 royal suite (all without soft furnishing), as well as partial public areas. The scope of work at Shaza Hotel in Riyadh includes the fit-out works for 205 rooms and partial public areas.
