The company’s Chairman, Board of Directors, CEO, and COO were present during the inauguration ceremony to show full support for the groundbreaking project.
According to the company’s senior executives, the housing facility reflects Imdaad’s commitment to ensure the welfare and high quality of life of all its staff members.

With functional spaces, the entire four-storey premises measuring 299,902 square feet are fully equipped with modern technologies and equipment such as solar system for hot water, air cooling chillers, central gas system, water treatment station, WiFi connection, and central television services.
Jamal Abdullah Lootah, CEO, Imdaad, said: “We are proud to inaugurate the new Imdaad Manzeli Staff Accommodation, which has been developed because we want our employees to live in a fully functional living space that can offer them that bespoke feeling of home. The high-technology staff accommodation has been designed to cater to our employees’ needs to make sure that they are well taken care of. Imdaad wants its employees to be safe, secure and comfortable and this is evident by the building’s amenities not only in phase one but in the succeeding phases as well.”
A central laundry station is available for the employees’ use as well, while the roof top can be utilized as an area to wash and dry clothes. Additionally, the building is manned by security guards round the clock to ensure the safety of all residents. The building, including parking areas, is equipped with a closed-circuit television system controlled from the site supervisor room on the ground floor.
