Turner & Townsend to launch Saudi office in 2017
"We have nearly finished the process of establishing our business in Saudi Arabia," the company's Middle East managing director told Construction Week
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.
