Top 50 MEP contractors and consultants
Ranked top 50 MEP contractors and consultants from across the region
Welcome to MEP Middle East’s special 100th edition Power List in which we rank the Top 50 MEP contractors and consultants from across the region.
After a lot of hard work and thorough research we have decided upon the most powerful and influential companies in the Middle East industry based on the best information available to us.
“How does one measure power and influence?”, you may ask. Both are in many ways abstract, intangible and unquantifiable concepts and, as such, any measure of either is inexact and largely subjective. This is further complicated by the composition of our list, comparing both contractors and consultants which, many might fairly suggest, is like comparing apples and oranges.
However, for the purposes of this exercise we have decided upon acknowledging the importance of both in equal measure i.e. the most powerful and influential contractor is roughly on a par with the most powerful and influential consultant.
Beyond this we settled on a number of other key criteria by which to reach our conclusions. Firstly, and most decisively, we reasoned that power and influence in any industry is dictated by those who do the most business. Capital and cashflow are the lifeblood of any industry, and those with the most not only attain greater control over their own affairs but also exert control over competitors, creditors and debtors.
Another criterion considered by the jury was staff numbers, which are obviously linked to turnover and work-in-hand, but should be considered on the human level of providing jobs to engineers and other staff from the region and further afield.
Contract wins in the last year were also taken into account, along with the diversity in the range of projects secured and the diversity of markets around the region. This scale of regional presence and ability to tackle different projects types was also applied to work currently underway or completed in the last year.
Finally, the complexity and difficulty of projects taken on was acknowledged. The level of engineering expertise required to execute projects successfully and project which advanced the field of MEP engineering were given greater weight.
Undoubtedly, there will be many who don’t agree with our ranking or who feel that their company should have been included. If this is the case feel free to contact us and, maybe next year when we do this all again, your firm will be able to call itself an industry powerhouse as well.
