"Strengthening sustainable built enviornments in the UAE calls for concerted action from all partners in the construction sector supply chain."

He continued: "Small and medium enterprises form the strongest component of our economy, and through the special membership packages for SMEs, we are providing them the opportunity to network with their peers and also benefit from the unique insights offered through our specialised industry sessions hosted regularly.

"Through our corporate membership for SMEs, they also benefit from sharing their competencies with industry leaders, innovating new technologies that are suited for the market and contributing to building a more sustainable economy."
