Bridging The Gaps
As we delved into the construction process, we discovered gaps between creative design and execution.
There were design professionals who lacked the contracting background. On the other end of the spectrum, you had specialized contracting companies that lacked the creative design edge. Hence, they had to work with design consultants such as architects and interior designers who provided the designs that they then executed.
Therefore, for us to be competitive in the industry as one of the top contracting companies in Dubai, we needed to bridge this gap by combining both disciplines under one umbrella company.
A Brief History
In 2005, we launched our Floral Arts division and began with landscaping design and build services for indoor and outdoor gardens. We also offered interior construction services to our clients through the same company.
The company invested time and effort in selecting motivated and able civil engineers, architects and staff who could provide the high quality of service we were offering. We also partnered with reliable sourcing partners for skilled labor.
In 2007, we opened our carpentry factory to service the needs of our interior and exterior design and construction requirements. Our carpentry and joinery division manufactured indoor and outdoor furniture, pergolas, gazebos, wall panelling and gypsum work in-house. This way, we were able to provide custom designed products manufactured to our design specifications, allowing for greater quality control.
We met the increasing demand for pools by opening our in-house pool contracting division in 2008. Pool construction is a complex process. To manage this effectively, we hired professional pool engineers.
Hence, we were able to provide a complete design-build package for our clients through the five cornerstones of Milestone – landscaping, interiors, pools, building contracting and carpentry.
