AESG boosts regional presence with new Saudi office

DUBAI, May 13, 2018

AESG, a specialist consultancy and commissioning firm headquartered in Dubai, UAE, has announced the launch of its new office in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, as part of its regional expansion strategy.

With offices in Riyadh, Abu Dhabi and London, the Emirati firm focuses on five core departments: Energy and Sustainable Development, Environment and Waste, Façade Engineering and Acoustics, Fire and Life Safety and Building Commissioning.

The company is now set to enhance the delivery of its services in the kingdom with the establishment of a fully-staffed operations hub in Riyadh.

"By clearly outlining targets across various sectors such as the built environment, waste management, energy efficiency and the use of resources, the vision set by Saudi government provides a clear roadmap for economic development plans within the kingdom," remarked Saeed Al Abbar, the managing director at AESG.

"We can see that the concepts of sustainability and resource efficiency are deeply embedded within the NTP 2020 and this aligns very strongly with our core competencies as a firm," stated Al Abbar.

AESG, he said, has an established track record in Saudi Arabia having worked with a number of private and public sector organisations as well as government entities over the past few years including the Public Investment Fund (PIF).

This work includes environmental and sustainability assessments for large-scale masterplan developments, fire and life safety consultancy services for world-class retail and residential developments and façade engineering services for a number of high-rise buildings in Riyadh.

Most recently, AESG was awarded a large assignment to oversee the commissioning and surveying of a large portfolio of real estate assets in Riyadh.

“Through our extensive body of work, we have established strong links with key clients in both the private and public sector who valued our offering and were eager for us to establish a more permanent presence in the Kingdom,” he added.

While AESG’s Saudi Arabia hub is located in Riyadh, the team is also highly active in Jeddah and the Eastern region. The company is set to soon announce the appointment of its country manager and is on track to increase the size of its team to over 20 consultants in the kingdom by the end of the year.

This investment is driven by the demand for AESG’s unique suite of specialist and technical advisory services.

Outlining AESG’s strategic roadmap for Saudi Arabia, Al Abbar said: "Our objective in any market and our key strength is to work alongside clients when they are faced with their greatest challenges. This has been the blueprint we have adopted in KSA and it has proven successful to date."

"We are committed to investing in the Saudi market and our goal is to support the Kingdom in achieving its NTP 2020 and Vision 2030 objectives.," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
