UAE-based AESG has announced that it has grown its regional workforce by 115%, owing to a surge in the volume of large commissioning and multi-specialty projects that it has won in recent months.

The firm has added project management specialists, façade engineers, fire and life safety consultants, commissioning managers and both sustainability and environmental consultants to its talent pool.

“A unique advantage of working with AESG is that clients are offered a comprehensive set of services from a single organisation. Providing all services as a unified package with dedicated project managers and streamlined processes has enabled us to deliver more integrated solutions. As there are strong interlinks between these service disciplines, our process is also more coordinated and efficient,” said Saeed Al Abbar, director at AESG.

As part of the AESG Specialist Consultancy Services bouquet, the firm offers fire and life safety, façade engineering, sustainable design, waste engineering and environmental consultancy.

“A building façade has a significant influence on fire and life safety, energy efficiency and sustainability. Having the expertise within one offering and employing tools such as building information modelling (BIM) and parametric design allows us to deliver a more optimised and integrated end result,” added Al Abbar.

AESG’s commissioning division has been awarded several projects this year, spread across the residential, hospitality, retail and critical infrastructure sectors. In addition to bolstering the skillsets in its workforce, AESG plans to penetrate new geographies and market verticals on the back of its enhanced talent pool.

“Our mission is to position AESG as a global market leader in consulting services by being the first UAE-owned and incubated engineering consultancy firm to penetrate global markets. Over the last 12 months, the company inaugurated its first operations hub outside the Middle East by opening an office in London, established a new division for fire & life safety, and entered into partnership with Tecnalia, one of the largest research organisations in Europe employing more than 1,300 people,” he added.

In recent months, the company has delivered multiple projects including a major residential development on Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi, which includes over 25 buildings, in addition to projects in the Dubai Creek Harbour and Dubai Business Bay.
