Dutco Balfour Beatty LLC was originally established in 1976 when Dubai Transport Company (DUTCO) and UK–based Balfour Beatty joined forces to undertake the mega-project that was the construction of Mina Jebel Ali. After completion of the project, Dutco Balfour Beatty LLC then engaged in major civil works projects, which included the Arrivals Terminal at Dubai International Airport, “G” station power and water desalination facility, and, more recently, the construction of the Dubai Mall - the largest shopping mall in the world.
In addition, DBB has been involved in many major infrastructure projects including Sheikh Zayed Road Interchange numbers 3, 4, 5 as well as the Business Bay development creek extension, the Dubai Airwing Facilities at Dubai International Airport, the Marina Bridge Package, the development of Qaffay Island, as well as major building projects including Marina Heights, the Sheikh Hamdan Awards Building, the Emirates Airlines Training Centre and the IBIS and Holiday Inn Express hotels on Sheikh Zayed Road.
The company is accredited under ISO 9000, ISO 14001 & OHSAS 18001 and was awarded the Dubai Quality Award in 1996. In 2007 DBB was awarded the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Business Award in the construction category. DBB maintains a high degree of health and safety awareness with a ‘zero tolerance’ target.
