The Middle East market is going through an interesting and challenging transition. As the oil-based countries of the region are shifting their focus more towards diversifying their economies, the desire for more liveable, healthy and prosperous cities is ever-growing. Parallel to this, new opportunities are created for innovation and the drive for the development of new industries is on the rise.

These changes offer us no shortage of opportunities for innovation, collaboration and to showcase our creativity and expertise.

Since our first project involvement in the Middle East over 40 y ears ago and now through established offices in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, we have had the honor to work with public authorities, local developers, major multinational clients, as well as some of the world’s most influential architects to deliver creative and high value technical solutions.

We continue to provide world-class services to Dubai Airports whom we recently supported in the successful opening of the new Concourse D. The prestigious Jumeirah Central Master Plan in Dubai, and Reem Downtown and Reem Mall in Abu Dhabi are just a few examples of our holistic ‘total design’ approach.

Our collaborative ways of working across multidisciplinary teams to ensure the satisfaction of our clients, our partners and our staff have never been more important. Throughout the world we aim to provide consistently excellent services, which also incorporates our concern for the environment. As designers of the built environment, we have a great responsibility to ensure that our contribution leaves a lasting, positive legacy.
