About

History

Al Shafar Interiors is the interior fit out subsidiary of construction conglomerate Al Shafar General Contracting (ASGC) established in 1997. ASI was born out of a vision to deliver exceptionally smooth turnkey fit out solutions to high-end clients across the UAE.

ASI’s primary objective is to provide sophisticated finishes and custom made products for different project sectors. The company’s philosophy combines quality and aesthetics with years of experience to produce the highest levels of customer satisfaction. The company possesses extensive experience in all aspects of the planning design and construction process. Professional teamwork, expert decision – making and effective communication are qualities we have long embraced in the delivery of each and every project.

Al Shafar Interiors maintains a state of the art woodworking factory located in Dubai Investments Park (DIP). With both a manufacturing facility as well as complete in-house project personnel, Al Shafar Interiors is the partner of choice where performance and quality is guaranteed.

Our Approach

ASI’s entire operations are centered on building and maintaining valuable client relationships. We strive to understand our client’s current and future needs at all stages of the project. Part of our responsibility to our clients is to identify alternative methods of construction, quicker and more economical processes, and to help them identify future requirements within the project’s scope. We try to understand these requirements before construction commences, thus ensuring that unforeseen project variations and demands are integrated into the desired project outcome. As a result of creating and nurturing these client relationships, a high percentage of our projects stems from repeat business. We have a rich culture of sharing new ideas and dedicate ourselves to exceeding client expectations in project delivery.

With a diverse and innovative portfolio of projects, we have gained an enviable reputation within the UAE fit out industry for delivering projects with an uncompromising quality. Our ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2007 certification is testament to our quality dedication.

We are committed to delivering projects that have economic, social and environmentally sustainable outcomes, benefiting clients and end users alike. As a result we maintain a carefully selected network of suppliers who share our mutual vision for an economically sustainable fit out solution.
