Design Infinity, leading fit-out supplier, has been named the UAE’s first qualified Gypsum Installer.

Design Infinity has earned the esteemed title of becoming the UAE’s first qualified Gypsum installer after successfully completing the Knauf Advanced IQP qualification. The Knauf Advanced IQP (Intertek Qualified Personnel) certification is a collaboration between Intertek and Knauf. This advanced partition training covered all aspects of the Knauf partition systems, including product knowledge, system solutions, understanding of standards and fundamental installation methods. Knauf is one of the leading manufacturers of gypsum-based building materials and has become the first recognised institution for drywall works and installations in the UAE.

Geetha Nayak, co-founder and managing partner of Design Infinity commented: “Our team now has the full understanding of passive fire resistance principles. As a company, we always focus on providing excellent services to our clients. This achievement will definitely aid us in providing exceptional service to our projects.”

Amer Bin Ahmed, managing director at Knauf Middle East, said: “We are very pleased to offer IQP accredited courses in partnership with Intertek at the new Knauf Training Centre. The new programmes will ensure higher quality and safety standards for buildings, enable us to continue our vision for quality, sustainability, health and safety, and also train professionals with excellence through a growing range of available courses. The new partnership with Intertek will improve skills and knowledge through the accredited qualifications. This initiative will help to create and retain a greater talent pool for the overall industry and to set a high standard for the region when it comes to professional training.”

“It’s an immense privilege for us to welcome Design Infinity to be the first fit-out company to become certified with the IQP accredited courses. Today marks great history for inordinate partnership as part of Knauf’s goals towards continuous improvement (Knauf CI), sustainability and quality”.

This is a new milestone for Design Infinity because it allows them to expand their market presence by being the first fit-out company in the UAE to offer this newly certified service to clients for their interior installations.
