The Al Ghurair Centre became the first modern shopping mall of its kind in the Middle East when it opened in 1981, setting the UAE on a path to becoming a global shopping destination.

The mall currently boasts a retail area of 480,000 ft2, comprising 200 stores, 20 F&B outlets, and an eight-screen cinema run by Grand Cinemas.

The property also boasts the Al Ghurair Rayhaan five-star hotel and the Al Ghurair serviced apartments - bringing 428 hotel rooms and 192 apartments on line.

SESC were appointed as resident commissioning managers to ensure all the AGC MEP services were commissioned and running to specification. Our teams also assisted any rectification required in any of the mall units.
