The Dubai office of AECOM was inaugurated under the patronage of HH Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and Minister of Finance of the UAE, HE Mirza Al Sayegh.
The event was attended by government officials, senior industry representatives and AECOM’s Middle East based clients.
Located on the 43rd floor of U-Bora Tower, Business Bay, the new office brings together AECOM’s operations in Dubai and the Northern Emirates under one roof.
It covers an area of 17,000 square feet with seating space for 170 employees.
David Barwell, AECOM chief executive, Middle East, said: “The new office reaffirms AECOM’s commitment to supporting Dubai’s ambitious growth plans, while the added business efficiencies of co-locating our employees within better facilities will ensure we can continue to stay competitive in this challenging market and offer our clients an unrivalled service.”
Prior to moving to the U-Bora office, Dubai based AECOM staff were based in Monarch Tower, 1 Sheikh Zayed Road, with two further offices in Dubai Healthcare City.
AECOM employs around 3,500 staff across the Middle East with further offices in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain.
