DUBAI, October 14, 2018

Cundall, an international multi-disciplinary engineering consultancy, has appointed Lee French to head up its civil engineering and infrastructure team in the Middle East region.

French brings with him a wealth of multimillion-dollar project experience across many sectors including lifestyle, masterplanning and infrastructure, said a statement from Cundall.

This combined with his reputation for total professionalism; integrity and commitment makes French a much-welcomed addition to Cundall’s Middle East operation, it stated.

In his new role, French's primary focus will be to enhance Cundall’s regional operations and the civil and infrastructure brand in the Middle East.

A chartered civil engineer (member of the Institution of Civil Engineer) and chartered construction manager (member of the Chartered Institute of Building), French is a champion of innovative sustainable approaches in building infrastructure.

Cundall is now very well-established right across the region with a fantastic portfolio of projects and I am really looking forward to being part of the continued development and growth."

"At Cundall, we have made it our mission to create fantastic built environments and have a positive impact on our communities. At this juncture, on the release of our new sustainability roadmap, we have a real opportunity to work with our Mena clients to deliver on that promise and create truly amazing sustainable building and infrastructure projects," he noted.

During the 17 years with Cundall, French has led and managed design teams and projects all across the UK, the Middle East and Africa region.
