Dr Kassem Rahal joined UAE-based Al Rostamani Pegel (ARP) in August 2014 as its general manager. Within this relatively short timeframe, he has managed to secure some high-profile projects in the UAE amid tough market conditions. One of the projects in ARP’s pipeline is the much-anticipated Dubai Frame, an ambitious endeavour by Dubai Municipality that is being constructed at Zabeel Park.
In addition, the contractor has its hands full with high-profile contracts, such as The Atria by Deyaar in Business Bay, Marina Arcade in Dubai Marina, and Boulevard Crescent by Emaar Properties. ARP’s revenues in 2015 grew by 35.6% over 2014 figures.
