2019 CW Power 100: Grant Porter, Atkins Mideast and Africa, at #32
EXCLUSIVE: Newly formalised CEO of UK construction consultancy returns to Construction Week Power 100
Chief executive officer of Atkins Middle East and Africa, Grant Porter, sees the deployment of Atkins’ end-to-end business capability and the firm’s “deep experience for gigaprojects in Saudi Arabia, and supporting the continued growth of the UAE” as the biggest opportunities for the group in 2019.
He says the key challenge facing the group’s Middle East and Africa business lies in building its design capability in Saudi Arabia while maintaining “quality delivery” and “building local talent in the kingdom to service the significant pipeline of opportunities”.
This year, Atkins will further develop and deploy its cloud platform globally.
