Construction consultancy Driver Trett has opened its first office in Kuwait to strengthen its presence in the Middle East.

The Kuwait office was officially launched by the chief executive officer of Driver Group, Driver Trett’s parent company, Gordon Wilkinson, and the UK ambassador to Kuwait, Michael Davenport.

Driver Trett’s Kuwait office will be staffed by 10 people, all of whom will provide multi-disciplinary consultancy services to support construction projects in areas including commercial and contract management, planning, and dispute resolution.

Driver Trett’s country manager for Kuwait, Anthony Crowley, said the company was "thriving", adding that the Kuwait arm of the construction consultancy would help the firm more easily conduct business in the country.

“Having a physical office in Kuwait allows Driver Trett the speed and flexibility to service the requirements of our clients, attend meetings, and provide follow up support. With locally-based staff [we do not need to] fly people in from around the region or indeed the world.”

Regional managing director, Peter Banathy, added: "The opening of the office in Kuwait signifies Driver Trett’s commitment to the State of Kuwait and our dedication to serving the needs of the construction and engineering community.

“As we globally celebrate Driver Group’s 40th year, it is particularly pleasing to be opening new offices, so that we both celebrate the past, and look forward to the future.”

Chief executive officer Wilkinson added: “The local team will, of course, still have access to the group’s global team of industry experts, should the need arise.”
