Faithful+Gould aims to achieve approximately 30% of its Middle East revenue through industry-related activities by 2019.

Middle East managing director Campbell Gray told Construction Week that the goal was in keeping with the consultancy’s broader strategy to increase its non-property operations in the region.

The shift is designed to guard against potential vulnerability to market fluctuations, given the consultancy’s increasingly targeted service offering.

Gray explained: “The thing for us is balance. By focusing on fewer things, we’re doing less but we’re more exposed to market change. Consequently, we’re simultaneously working to diversify.

“At a global level, Faithful+Gould’s activities are spread equally across property and industry, including pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, oil and gas, and corporate real estate. [However,] in the Middle East, the majority of our activities fall within the property segment.”

Faithful+Gould’s Middle East MD went on to say that his firm was working to increase its industry-related footprint across the region.

“We’re currently diversifying into industry, with energy representing our prime focus. I would like to see industry account for approximately 30% of Faithful+Gould’s Middle East revenue by 2019,” Gray concluded.
