Azizi Developments, a leading private developer in the UAE, is ensuring the safety of its residents through the appointment of NAFFCO FZCO as part of a multimillion deal for the supply and installation of firefighting, fire alarm and emergency lighting systems at Riviera in MBR City.

The well-being and safety of its customers has always been at the forefront of Azizi’s priorities, with the developer only collaborating with top-tier service providers. Established in the UAE, NAFFCO was founded to become the world’s leading producer and supplier of life safety solutions. By recognising the importance and convenience of having easy access to multiple safety services, NAFFCO became specialised by offering complete solutions under one roof for all types of high-quality firefighting equipment, fire protection systems, fire alarms, addressable emergency systems, and security systems as well as of custom-made vehicles, such as fire trucks, ambulances, mobile hospitals and airport rescue firefighting vehicles (ARFF).

Mr Farhad Azizi, CEO at Azizi Developments, said: “After a comprehensive review of all life safety solution consultancies, there is no doubt in our minds that NAFFCO is the absolute best fit. We look forward to working with this outstandingly reliable partner – one that has a wealth of expertise and an exceptional track record in protecting lives, the environment and properties. Their impressive 15,000-strong team, which includes 2,000 passionate and vastly knowledgeable engineers, as well as their highly advanced solutions which are already being exported to more than 100 countries worldwide, make NAFFCO the absolute best-in-class, effectively matching our stringent requirements for Riviera.”

Founder and CEO of NAFFCO, Eng. Khalid Al Khatib, commented: “We are delighted to partner up with Azizi Developments, a trusted and leading private developer in the UAE. Working hand-in-hand with an organisation that catalyses the development of Dubai, as well as the well-being of its residents, much like ourselves, is a true pleasure. We take our passion to protect very

seriously and look forward to applying our innovative solutions for the safety of Riviera’s residents.”

With its products being certified by UL, FM, BSI, LPCB & Global Mark, consistent with international standards, its Quality Management System, ISO 9001, having been certified by BSI & UL-DQS, and its Environmental (ISO 14001) and Occupational Health & Safety (ISO 45001) Management Systems having been certified by UL-DQS, NAFFCO is the ideal safety partner for Azizi’s renowned waterfront lifestyle community in MBR City.

Riviera will, upon its completion, comprise more than 16,000 residences spread across 71 mid-rise buildings, overlooking an extensive retail boulevard, a canal walk with artisan eateries and boutiques, and Les Jardins — a lush-green social space.

With its strategic location near the upcoming Meydan One Mall and the Meydan Racecourse — home of the Dubai World Cup — as well as Dubai’s major business, leisure and retail hubs, Riviera is one of Azizi Developments’ most sought-after projects. Designed to introduce the French-Mediterranean lifestyle to Dubai, which is not merely about architectural art, but also about a certain ‘joie de vivre’ — a celebration of life and exultation of spirit — Riviera represents a new landmark destination that will add unique value to the UAE’s real estate landscape.
