AESG sets up fire and life safety unit in Dubai

DUBAI, January 26, 2017

AESG, a leading consultancy practice in the Middle East, has announced the establishment of its dedicated fire and life safety consultancy division.

The new division is fully licensed by local civil defence authorities and provides a holistic portfolio of 11 critical services, among which are building fire and life safety strategy and design, qualitative and quantitative fire risk assessments, fire systems design and engineering, fire safety audits and fire protection system design, said a statement from AESG, which is a board member of the Emirates Green Building Council.

The new department draws from a wealth of experience that AESG has already gained in the field through its involvement in many large-scale, high-profile projects such as Al Hamra Tower in Kuwait, The Opus Business Bay and Al Jalila Children's Specialty Hospital, it stated.

Speaking at the launch, Saeed Al Abbar, the director at AESG, said: "We are excited to extend AESG’s scope of services and capabilities with the opening of this new fire and life safety division."
 
"As new opportunities emerge from the success of our ongoing activities, we will look to continue our expansion both in terms of geographies as well as offerings," he added.

The opening of the new division adds to a series of strategic growth investments that AESG has made over the last 12 months, said a statement from the company.

Last year, the company expanded its environment consultancy and commissioning division and branched out into the global market with the establishment of a hub in London.

Division director Peter van Gorp, who is a regional veteran with over 20 years of experience in the specific area, said: "There are no straight-forward solutions in fire safety, only intelligent choices which are made by qualified professionals with extensive real-world experience."

Commenting on the market need for AESG’s services, he said: "Skyscrapers and high-rise buildings are commonplace to city skylines in the Middle East and these large developments require sophisticated fire and life safety strategies."

Initially, AEGS will focus on providing advisory and engineering services to clients in the building, industrial, and oil and gas sectors.

"There is a tremendous amount of oil and gas related activities in the region which require detailed planning to develop optimised and effective fire engineering solutions," stated van Gorp.

"At AESG, we have invested not only in developing technical knowledge, but also in ensuring that it is translated and incorporated into the services we deliver," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
