HLG Contracting has unveiled a new name and brand identity for its operations in the Middle East.
Effective immediately, the company that built Al Habtoor City will be known as BIC Contracting (BICC).
Moustafa Fahour, CEO and managing director, said: “This new name signifies our company’s core strength and focus on being the building and infrastructure contracting company of choice; combining international expertise and local experience.
“Refreshing our focus reflects our commitment to delivering strong outcomes for our clients and safe working environments for our people, as we look for opportunities that leverage our extensive track record and strong commitment to the region.”
This is the second rebranding for the contractor in less than two years. It changed name to HLG Contracting from Al Habtoor Leighton in November 2016 after UAE-based Al Habtoor Holding sold its stake in the company.
Australia’s CIMIC Group (formerly Leighton Contractors) retains a 45% shareholding in BICC.
Among HLG’s most recent major contract awards is the concrete raft foundation for one of Uptown Dubai’s two super tall towers.
In mid-2017 it won a $168mn contract with Dubai World Trade Centre to build residential towers for Expo village, part of Expo 2020 Dubai (pictured).
