The Abu Dhabi office of Broadway Malyan is considering making up to six redundancies, following the completion of several of its major projects in the region.
A ‘review’ of the Abu Dhabi operations is taking place, despite the recent approval of the practice’s masterplan for a new 680 hectare waterfront community on Yas Island (pictured).
Ian Apsley, director of Broadway Malyan, said: “We are currently consulting with six members of permanent staff over possible redundancies as part of a review of our Abu Dhabi-based operations.
“[This is] to ensure that we perform as effectively and efficiently as possible in terms of delivering on commitments to existing clients and with a view to securing future business. As the outcome of the review becomes clear we will prioritise communication with our employees.”
Apsley revealed that the Abu Dhabi team expanded by 50% over the last 18 months and has now completed projects such as Al Bandar, as well as concept masterplans for Yas Island and the 10×10’ project in Iraq and seven schools for the Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC).
He added: “The review will ensure that we sustain a healthy, robust and profitable regional business to deliver a committed pipeline of projects.”
UK headquartered Broadway Malyan has 15 offices around the globe including Shanghai, São Paulo, Singapore and Mumbai.
