Multidisciplinary construction consultancy, Turner & Townsend, is set to launch an office in Saudi Arabia this year, a senior official told Construction Week.

Alan Talabani, managing director for Turner & Townsend’s Middle East operations, said the development would support the firm's ambition to expand its operations in the kingdom.

He explained: "We have nearly finished the process of establishing our business in Saudi Arabia, which will be a big step for us.

"As a Middle Eastern business, you have to have a presence in Saudi Arabia.

"A lot of our clients have asked us to support them in Saudi, so that was part of the rationale [in] going there."

The office is expected to open in the third quarter of this year.  

Talabani's conversation with Construction Week was published in the magazine's 12 August, 2017 issue (#664), and can be read here.
