The selection of the final F,F& E and O,S & E Items to procure for the Ancient Sands properties and hotel occurred yesterday in Cairo. The Orascom procurement team have sourced a range of samples according to the brief provided by Kenetic International and today we will view the set of samples in order to facilitate placement of the final order. Items up for consideration are swimming pool area parasols, laundry baskets, kitchen knives, amenities trays and much more! All items should be received between February and April of next year.
Says Managing Director, Martine Trebucq, “What has proved interesting in Egypt is that it is very difficult to find items that will be available in the market for repeat future purchase. Models seem to have a 6 month life cycle and then are often no longer available in the market. The best way to ensure consistency of design is to have items made according to bespoke specifications and we have done this through the procurement of FFE for the project as a whole”
This activity is the final procurement for the common and hotels area of the project will allow us to finish the attention to detail procurement to transform Ancient Sands into a truly 5 star luxury environment. Already the rest of the FFE for the units and the common areas is received and in situ.
