Firm aims to have 20 consultants in the Kingdom by the end of the year
AESG has launched a new office in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The new office will enhance the delivery of services within the kingdom and is in line with its regional expansion plans, according to a statement from the firm.
The firm focuses on five core disciplines: energy and sustainable development, environment and waste, façade engineering and acoustics, fire and life safety, and building commissioning.
“By clearly outlining targets across various sectors such as the built environment, waste management, energy efficiency and the use of resources, the vision set by Saudi government provides a clear roadmap for economic development plans within the kingdom. We can see that the concepts of sustainability and resource efficiency are deeply embedded within the NTP 2020 and this aligns very strongly with our core competencies as a firm,” explained Saeed Al Abbar, MD at AESG.
AESG has already worked on several project in the Kingdom in the private and public sector, including government entities such as the Public Investment Fund (PIF). The consultancy has offered environmental and sustainability assessment services for large scale masterplan developments, fire and life safety consultancy services for retail and residential developments, as well as façade engineering services for a number of high rise buildings in Riyadh.
“Through our extensive body of work, we have established strong links with key clients in both the private and public sector who valued our offering and were eager for us to establish a more permanent presence in the Kingdom,” he said.
AESG was recently awarded a contract to oversee the commissioning and surveying of a large portfolio of real estate assets in Riyadh. The firm is also active in Jeddah and the eastern region.
Discussing AESG’s roadmap for Saudi Arabia, Al Abbar comments, “Our objective in any market and our key strength is to work alongside clients when they are faced with their greatest challenges. This has been the blueprint we have adopted in KSA and it has proven successful to date. We are committed to investing in the Saudi market and our goal is to support the Kingdom in achieving its NTP 2020 and Vision 2030 objectives.”
