Rowell has over 30 years of experience spread across geographies and sectors
Following the inauguration of its European hub in London, AESG has now appointed Alan Rowell as its UK country director. The firm says it is now ready to capitalise on the ‘rapidly changing dynamics within the United Kingdom (UK) and European Union (EU) construction markets’.
His initial focus will be to work with architects and end customers, including developers and building owners, to help understand and address their requirements, according to a statement from AESG.
“The realities of climate change, political and economic uncertainty, sustainability and carbon management have defined the UK construction sector in recent years. These are challenges which demand a new approach and AESG can provide a fully coordinated team of specialist consultants to deliver a unique offering in this market. At the same time, the London office will work closely with our Dubai headquarters, to deliver projects across Europe and the Middle East. Alan brings a wealth of expertise in multidiscipline projects which will no doubt lead to our success in this objective,” said Saeed Al Abbar, director at AESG.
Rowell has over 30 years of experience in specialist engineering consultancy in the UK, Europe, Middle East, Far East, India, North Africa and China. He is said to have proven experience in building services design, multidiscipline design and design management, and has led teams to deliver complex national and international projects across sectors.
AESG believes its growing investments in the UK will help it to introduce and implement industry best practices in all its geographies of operation, given that frameworks developed in the UK are sometimes used as a template in developing local building regulations around the world.
Speaking about his appointment and goals, Rowell stated, “Our team includes architects, engineers, manufacturers and scientists and therefore boasts an unrivalled talent pool. Our aim is to add value to every project and bring something entirely new to the UK market. We want to work with clients and collaborators that share our values of honesty, integrity and respect as our presence here is a long-term venture built on trust-based relationships that are mutually beneficial and offer long term repeat business.”
