Contractors.Direct has recently announced its strategic collaboration with DMCC to provide its free zone tenants with the option to streamline the commercial fit out process through use of its platform. DMCC customers and tenants that select a qualified contractor from the platform will be eligible to apply for project financing for as much as AED 3.5 million and spread the cost of their project over three years.
“DMCC is committed to providing its new and existing member companies with comprehensive property solutions, this collaboration with Contractors.Direct will deliver greater value to our customers by expanding the variety of property solutions available to them.” said Paul Ashton, Executive Director – Property, DMCC. “The platform will offer a smart, quick and reliable tool that will guide our customers in their search for fitout services,” he added.
Contractors.Direct streamlines the process of choosing a contractor by not only providing a suite of certified and qualified entities to choose from, it also qualifies the business’ project requirements to ensure that the opportunity is viable for both parties.
“We are ourselves a DMCC company and we are thrilled to be able to bring our comprehensive suite of services to fellow tenants. Being able to advise and help these companies make better informed decisions when choosing contractors will dramatically reduce project risk.
