BRE Global has launched its Sabre security assessment and certification scheme in the Middle East.

Designed to ensure security across nine key areas of building operations and design, from assessing risk to reviewing policies and procedures, Sabre will be available to regional developers through WSP.

The Canada-headquartered engineering consultancy is the first Sabre licensed organisation outside of the UK.

Andrew Lloyd Jones, WSP’s principal consultant of security risk management, and the first certified Sabre-registered assessor in the Middle East, said: “The Sabre certification allows developers to showcase their commitment to the security of building occupants and visitors, whilst assessing the continual improvement of security-related policies through regular recertification.

“Sabre is not designed as a simple badge of compliance; the certification seeks to drive improvement and encourage developers and operators to implement and demonstrate industry best practice,” he added.

Sabre certification can offer assurance for tenants, clients, and visitors that security has been considered throughout the design and operation of a building, according to its creators.

BRE Global is an independent, third-party approvals and certification organisation that is headquartered in the UK.
