AESG expands regional presence with new Saudi office
Economic and sustainable development targets set by Saudi government for 2030 open new opportunities in the development and energy sectors, firm says
Consulting and commissioning firm AESG, has expanded its regional presence with a new office in Saudi Arabia.
AESG has already been involved in several projects that form part of Saudi’s Vision 2030, and are now set to enhance the delivery of their services in the Kingdom with the establishment of a fully-staffed operations hub in Riyadh.
In line with the Saudi Vision 2030, the Kingdom has set clear economic and developmental KPIs to be achieved.
Saeed Al Abbar, managing director at AESG said: “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 the government of Saudi Arabia 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.”
AESG has been operating in the Kingdom having worked with a number of private and public sector organisations as well as government entities over the past few years including the Public Investment Fund (PIF).
This work includes environmental and sustainability assessments for large scale masterplan developments, fire and life safety consultancy services for retail and residential developments and façade engineering services for a number of high rise buildings in Riyadh.
Most recently, AESG was awarded a large assignment to oversee the commissioning and surveying of a large portfolio of real estate assets 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,” said Al Abbar.
AESG team is also active in Jeddah and the Eastern region.
The company is set to soon announce the appointment of its country manager and is on track to increase the size of its team to over twenty consultants in the Kingdom by the end of 2018.
