UAE-based AESG is further expanding into Saud Arabia with a new office in Riyadh.
AESG has already been involved in several projects in the kingdom and is now set to enhance the delivery of its services with the establishment of a fully-staffed operations hub in the capital city.
The company has 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 comprises environmental and sustainability assessments for large scale masterplan developments, fire and life safety consultancy services for retail and residential developments, and façade engineering services for a number of high rise buildings in Riyadh.
AESG was also recently awarded a large assignment to oversee the commissioning and surveying of a large portfolio of real estate assets in Riyadh.
Saeed Al Abbar, managing director at AESG, said: “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 the government of Saudi Arabia provides a clear roadmap for economic development plans within the Kingdom.
“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.”
While AESG’s Saudi Arabia hub is located in Riyadh, the team is also 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 twenty consultants in the Kingdom by the end of the year.
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.”
