These have been a significant 12 months for David Barwell and his team within the context of Aecom’s Middle East operations. Last year, the consultancy marked its first half century in the UAE, having arrived in Abu Dhabi in 1965.

At a global level, the group achieved an annual revenue of around $18bn during its 2015 financial year. Aecom, which scooped the Consultant of the Year prize at the Construction Week Awards 2015, boasts clients in more than 150 countries around the world.

Between June 2015 and May 2016, the company completed contracts at Taweelah Aluminium Extrusion (TALEX), and Etihad Rail Stage 1 in the UAE. In Bahrain, Aecom fulfilled its project management and client representation responsibilities at the Dragon City Mall development.

In Saudi Arabia, the firm concluded works related to Phase 1 of Jeddah’s Stormwater Drainage Programme, and its pre-programme management activities at Jeddah Metro.

During the coming year, Barwell’s team will continue to support a range of GCC projects, including Abu Dhabi International Airport’s Midfield Terminal Complex (MTC), Bahrain’s Diyar Al Muharraq development, and Qatar’s Hamad Port.
