Services company reveals locations of new offices in Saudi Arabia
Turner & Townsend, the global professional services company, has announced the opening of two new offices in Riyadh and Al Khobar in Saudi Arabia, as it looks to further extend its coverage across the Gulf region. In a statement, the company said that the new offices are strategically located to provide specialist services to clients in the Kingdom, benefitting from investment driven by the government’s Saudi Vision 2030.
It added that Saudi Vision 2030 was driving construction in the country, with more than 4,700 active construction projects worth an estimated $285 billion – thus highlighting the sector’s increased potential in both the residential and commercial segments.
“We are extremely excited to extend our services offering to the kingdom at this time of unprecedented changes. These new offices will help us continue to provide high-quality consultancy and drive better performance for clients and their investors in the GCC region,” said Alan Talabani, regional managing director, about the new offices.
He added that the company was progressing with staff transfers, which would be supplemented by external recruitment. It is anticipated that by the end of 2018, Turner & Townsend’s KSA business will add significant value to the company’s regional operations and targets.
“We are delighted that we have opened our offices in good time allowing us to be a part of a construction market with an enormous potential,” Simon Trafford, Saudi residential director for Turner and Townsend, said, while also pointing out that the construction market priorities in the Kingdom are aligned with the country’s Vision 2030.
Turner & Townsend has operated in the GCC region since 2006, it has worked with several government entities and multinational corporations, and helped deliver several regional programmes which have had a significant impact on the regional construction industry and raised industry standards.
The company operates 106 offices across the world and specialises in programme management, project management, cost and commercial management and advisory across the real estate, infrastructure and natural resources sectors.
