Welcome to Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Abu Dhabi is more than a city. Like much of the Middle East, it’s a buzzing microcosm of the world, both past and present. Alongside archaeological ruins from the third millennium BCE sit the most advanced modern designs. With four-fifths of the population hailing from elsewhere, the average day is a delight for the senses with vast cultural influences resulting in a flurry of sights, sounds, tastes.

The epitome of tradition mixed with forward-thinking, conservation, and culture, UAE’s urban fabric has become the perfect canvas for our multidisciplinary talent. Each day, our engineers, architects, and consultants work to enrich Abu Dhabi’s infrastructure and its community. Since 1997, our work here has spanned the areas of water, transportation, buildings, and community planning—helping Abu Dhabi to grow and adapt to meet the needs of its population.

Our multinational and multicultural team has come together in our offices on Al Reem Island and believes in a client-centric approach to project delivery. Our approach has led to the completion of highly publicized projects such as the Mafraq Hospital & Mafraq Dialysis Center. We’ve also provided a range of services for the water and sewer networks, most recently completing a critical sewerage master plan that will support decision-making to rapidly improve facilities to meet a doubling in demand by 2025.
