P&T moves into new Dubai office
Dubai, March 5, 2011
P&T Architects and Engineers, a Hong Kong-based international consultant, said it has relocated its Dubai office in a move that reflects the organisations’ long term commitment in the region.
The firm said it recently moved into an expansive office facility at the new Sheikh Hamdan Awards Complex Building in Dubai.
P&T Architects and Engineers is working on a diverse range of projects including landmark buildings and complex developments across the Middle East from its UAE regional base, said a company statement.
The Dubai office is also strongly supported by the organisations’ strength in China and Asian markets, it added.
'The importance of Dubai in the Middle East and the global market continues to grow,' said James Abbott, group director, P & T Architects and Engineers in Dubai.
'The relocation of our office in Dubai is a testament of P&T’s commitment to further build on our successful growth to the 6th largest global architectural practice and to continue to deliver benchmark projects for our valued clients in the strategic Middle East region,' he added.
In 2004, P&T was firmly established in the UAE, winning a number of high profile projects including City of Arabia, one of the largest private development projects in the region and a key part of Dubailand.
That major entry into Dubai was followed by a succession of projects in Ajman, Abu Dhabi, and Ras Al Khaimah.
More recently, from the Dubai office, P&T has been working on projects in Riyadh, Baku in Azerbaijan and Kampala in Uganda. P&T now provides services for the whole of greater Mena region from the Dubai office.
P&T, formerly known as Palmer and Turner was established in Hong Kong in 1868. In 1982 the P&T Group was formed to enable expansion in both disciplines and areas of service.
P&T, which employs over 1,800 personnel around the world, is one of the largest architect and engineering consultants in the Far East and has well established reputation for quality landmark buildings and developments.-TradeArabia News Service
