Carillion and our joint venture partner Al Futtaim first moved into Cairo during 2008 to work on the Cairo Festival City development, a mixed-use urban community, for Al Futtaim Group Real Estate.

The first contract in Cairo was for the construction of the Retail Mall which had an initial construction value of EGP 2.05Bn and a programme duration of 40 months completing in November 2013. The whole development covers 3 million square meters and is adjacent to the Cairo Ring Road and at the entrance to New Cairo City.

The development has over 300 shops, 95 restaurants and cafes, and provision for a 17 screen multiplex cinema. The car parking provision is in excess of 7,000 spaces. In addition, we constructed as part of the Mall, the first Ikea in Africa.

In 2010, Carillion Construction was awarded a second contract in Egypt for the site wide infrastructure at Cairo Festival City. This contract, EGP 1.38Bn was procured with funding via the UK Export Credit. Carillion's joint venture with Al Futtaim (AFC) supported the contractor as a sub-contractor.

The Infrastructure comprises of all underground utility networks, including sewage water, irrigation, gas, fibre optics, medium voltage, low voltage, force main and 14 km of road works with street lighting and landscaping including a 500m cut and cover boulevard tunnel. A separate sewage and water pumping station were constructed along with a district cooling plant and associated distribution pipework.

Future opportunities in Egypt are significant and exciting with other private international developers seeking to bring further new and exciting projects to the market in the country.

United Arab Emirates


Carillion has a long and successful history of working in United Arab Emirates delivering exemplar projects across the scope of our capabilities: construction, infrastructure and facilities management.

We have two partnerships in the country:

  • Al Futtaim Carillion - Construction & Infrastructure
  • Emrill - Facilities Management

Carillion's roots in the country go back to the early days of the region's growth and development. Commencing activities in mid-1950's under the banner of George Wimpey & Co. Ltd, then in the 1970's as Al-Futtaim Wimpey LLC. In 1994, the Company became Al-Futtaim Tarmac after the Wimpey/Tarmac asset swap and subsequently Al-Futtaim Carillion LLC after the Tarmac de-merger in 1999.

In 2002, Carillion and Emaar Properties set up Emrill to provide Facilities Management and Services in the Emirates. The venture focussed on the growing demand for new building management following the property construction boom. In 2010, Al Futtaim joined the partnership creating a 3-way joint venture.

Both Al Futtaim Carillion and Emrill are award-winning organisations at the forefront of the construction and facilities management markets in the Emirates. Projects have included building and operating Dubai Festival City, various projects for Emirates Aluminium Limited, servicing the headquarters of Etihad Airways and the construction of the iconic Yas Viceroy Hotel (pictured) at Abdu Dhabi's Grand Prix circuit.
