Founded over 30 years ago in 1985, National Aluminium Ginco is one of the UAE’s most recognisable names when it comes to architectural aluminium fabrication. With its 35 year-plus history in the country, the Ginco Group subsidiary, National Aluminium – managed by brothers Arash and Arman has enjoyed a unique vantage point as Dubai hit various world firsts. These have come in the likes of the Burj Khalifa or Dubai Creek Tower, the latter whose 145 barrette piles were tested to a world record load of 36,000 tonnes and laid 72 metres deep.

Despite such notable advancements, challenges for façade companies in the UAE have “increased dramatically during the past few years”, as Feras Farah, National Aluminium Ginco’s operation manager and head of business development, tells Construction Week. “Clients, consultants, and regulations have become more advanced, demanding, and increasingly focused on the performance of the triangle – quality, cost, and time.”

With these challenges in mind, alongside the cost pressures inherent to the GCC’s construction sector, innovation has become the life-blood of any construction firm and National Aluminium Ginco is no exception to this new normal.

In the near future the consultant will do all their inspections through drones. Moreover, the full construction process, from start to finish, will soon incorporate the use of this technology.

Mr Feras Farah, National Aluminium Ginco said that “Incremental increases in cost, time impacts, and materials prices, have meant that we have had to implement ‘out-of-the-box solutions’ in terms of materials, drawings, and the access and use of novel installation techniques.”
