AESG posts triple digit growth in 2018

DUBAI, December 31, 2018

Dubai-based AESG, a specialist consultancy and commissioning firm with expertise in building engineering and design, has registered triple digit growth in 2018 following introduction of new services in the region and expansion across verticals.

Following its concerted efforts to better cater to the region’s growing demand for specialised consultancy services by diversifying its services portfolio and expanding its geographic footprint, AESG, has posted growth figures of over 150 per cent for 2018.

With a strong project pipeline that increased by over 90 per cent in the last 12 months, the Dubai-based consultancy expects to build on this momentum through 2019 and has recently undertaken a strategic expansion to better align its divisions and services with the needs of the market.

"By expanding our portfolio, both in terms of geographies and market sectors, we have successfully gained traction in a number of new markets and verticals," remarked Saeed Al Abbar, the managing director at AESG.

"This has resulted in new and strong partnerships with key clients which provides us with a robust and stable platform for growth even in the current challenging economic climate," he stated.

"In fact, financial pressures are driving clients to become ever more focused on maximising value on their projects. This, in turn, drives demand for consultants that can offer more tailored, strategic and higher value advice. For AESG, which is committed to working closely with clients, understanding their needs and introducing innovative ideas and approaches based on these requirements, this presents a significant opportunity for further growth in the year ahead," he added.

Through 2018, AESG invested heavily in increasing its workforce by 167 per cent, establishing new offices in Saudi Arabia, employing senior directors in the UK, and doubling the office space at its headquarters in Dubai.

Along with this, the company has realigned its business units to better cater to the needs of their clients with verticals in building engineering and design, land development and infrastructure, industry and oil and gas, strategy and advisory and commissioning and innovation.

According to AESG, these investments and approaches will together enhance the company’s ability to deliver more compelling and holistic offerings to clients, ideally positioning it to rapidly address and capitalise on new market demands.

Offering an example of how the company continues to offer new services based on client needs, Al Abbar said: "Recognising the global trend towards health and wellbeing, we have built expertise in designing healthy workplaces and have carried out a number of Well certified projects."

"In addition to this we see the need for the building industry to move towards net zero developments and we are already working with Clients in this space off the back of some research we developed around net zero buildings," he stated.

"In recent months, the company has also expanded its offerings in building simulation, notably in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling, parametric design techniques and the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) for data and asset management," he added.

In recognition of these achievements, AESG has received a number of industry accolades through 2018 which include the Commissioning Company of the Year at the Climate Control Awards and the Sustainable Consultancy of the Year at the Middle East Consultant Awards as well as top honours for Al Abbar who was recognised as the ‘Sustainability Leader of the Year’ at the Abu Dhabi Sustainable Business Leadership Awards and the 'Executive of the Year' at the Big Project Middle East Awards.-TradeArabia News Service
