For the fourth year in a row, WME’s MEP team position themselves among the elite of the industry.
Moving up the ranks, the MEP team clinched the 9th spot this year among the top engineering firms across the Middle East region.
Talking to MEP Middle East about the company’s regional footprint and focus, WME’s MEP Director, Nicholas Bycznski says: “Our core business is in Dubai, generating 75% of our Middle Eastern work. Through our existing portfolio and clients we will continue to generate a mix used workload in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Saudi has opened up in 2018 and we see a very solid work stream being generated in retail, hospitality and entertainment over the coming years. We have many partners that are already generating work in KSA and we are hoping to increase our workload through these channels, with a small portfolio already generated for this region. Oman and Bahrain are small markets but some unique expertise are required to deliver projects there. We don’t envisage a huge workload generation [from Oman and Bahrain] but we will be reactive to opportunities as they arise.”
On some of the challenges facing the business, Bycznski says: “Our objectives in 2018 are to diversify from Dubai whilst envisaging a downturn in residential projects, leaving Dubai to focus on the delivery of Expo and completion of existing projects already in design.”
