The complaining firm claimed they had signed an agreement with the construction company and worked on the project for over a year. However, the latter blocked their access to the site and did not pay their dues.

An engineering firm in the UAE is demanding Dh3.3 million from a construction company after the latter allegedly failed to pay for its services. Though the lower courts earlier turned down the complainant's demand, the Federal Supreme Court has ordered a fresh trial of the case.

The complaining firm claimed they had signed an agreement with the construction company and worked on the project for over a year. However, the latter blocked their access to the site and did not pay their dues.

The engineering firm said that during that period, they still had to continue paying the salaries of experts and staff members who were in charge of the project. Expenses had also increased, it added.

The construction company, however, denied the claims, stressing that the complainant breached the agreement and did not complete the contract.

A report presented to court stated that the engineering firm should be paid Dh3.3 million for the services it provided. Both the Court of First Instance and the Appellate Court had rejected the demand, on grounds that the complainant failed to complete the contract.

The firm took the case to the UAE's top court, which had ordered a fresh hearing at the Court of Appeals.
