Building on its ongoing success as a leading consultancy practice in the Middle East, AESG announced that it has expanded with the opening of its new operations hub in London
Building on its successes as a leading consultant in the Middle East, AESG announced that it has expanded to compete in the global market with the opening of its new office in London. This move follows years of double digit growth for the company in the Middle East during which it has successfully delivered numerous projects for international clients, including many from the UK.
Commenting on the decision to grow AESG’s footprint outside the GCC region, company director, Saeed Al Abbar said, “Based on our leading position in the Middle East market, clients have increasingly requested for our services outside of the region. Opening an office in London was a natural step as many of our international clients operate in that market which is a hub for international activity in real estate development and design excellence. This aligns with our expansion strategy of focusing on markets that value high quality consultancy services.”
The new office will serve as a hub for other European and international markets. AESG has an extensive portfolio of specialist consultancy services and will initially focus on delivering these services to clients through this new European hub. These service lines address some of the most pressing challenges in urban development and Al Abbar believes they will present a strong value proposition to the international markets.
Over the years, AESG has established a strong track record of working effectively with international architecture and development firms on iconic projects within the Middle East. These include The Opus in Business Bay, Dubai and the Bee'ah Headquarters in Sharjah, both of which were designed by award-winning architect, the late Zaha Hadid, the ICD Brookfield Place and the Dubai Design District designed by Foster and Partners, as well as the UAE Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, which was designed by Santiago Calatrava.
“We have extensive experience working with leading architectural practices in Europe and opening our offices in London will enable us to build on this,” said Al Abbar. “By going global, we will be able to replicate best practices that we develop from our operations in the international markets, in our Middle East practice and vice-versa, which will only serve to further enhance the quality and value of our offerings.”
