Middle East and Africa
Our regional team supports projects in more than 50 countries, spanning 2 continents
Have a project in the Middle East or Africa? We’ll support you. Our regional team has built a reputation as a reliable, agile and trusted supplier, working in partnership with colleagues in the UK and in-region contractors.
If there’s a crisis, we have technical officers based in embassies and missions throughout the region. In a part of the world not unknown to rapidly fluctuating tensions, we have the diplomatic skills and established, trusted relationships to resolve a wide range of issues at speed.
Having our team in region with additional support from UK colleagues allows us to better serve customers’ needs and respond quickly – both in day-to-day activity and in overcoming potential delivery challenges across the region. Our teams in the UK include architects, interior designers, surveyors, project managers and technicians with extensive experience on government projects.
If you need to speak to someone about your project urgently, our senior regional management team are based at the British High Commission in Pretoria.
