Dubai is rightly known for skyscrapers and other marvelous building projects. High rise buildings in Dubai perform several functions for growth of several industries in the whole emirate. They not only solve problems related to residence and business accommodation but also provide boost to tourism industry. Apart from high rise buildings, the building of hotels, parks, artificial islands and other business and entertainment projects are continuously under construction in Dubai.
The construction and building sector is on the rise in this emirate since past several decades and there is no reason that will not achieve further growth in coming future. A recent report shows that UAE has world’s 2nd fastest construction growth. It is mainly due to the progress of Dubai. An important aspect that favors construction sector is the upcoming Dubai Expo 2020. The preparation of this international event has transformed the previously-isolated area of Dubai South in to a business hub.
There are several other large and small building projects underway in different parts of Dubai. They provide massive opportunities for the construction company formation.

Following are important steps required for setting up a construction company in Dubai mainland and any of the several free zones there.
- Commercial license is required for starting a construction company. For this purpose, the relevant authority is DED (Dubai Economic Department). Different free zones have their own respective authorities that provide building license for construction companies. There are different types of licenses required for different types of construction activities including building contracting license, building maintenance license, wrecking & demolition license, steel constructions contracting license and several others
- You will require professional license to conduct activities related to engineering, design and project management
- Construction companies are also required to hire engineers or consultants. These professionals can start their activities after acquiring building permits
