Faithful+Gould has had a productive year. The international consultancy’s Middle East revenues grew by 15% for the period ending 31 March, 2016, during which time the firm’s book-to-bill ratio – the ratio of work won to revenue earned – was 140%. Its revenue is forecast to grow by 20% for the period to March 2017.

In the UAE, Faithful+Gould is working with notable clients, such as Majid Al Futtaim, Miral, Emaar, wasl Asset Management, and Investment Corporation of Dubai, and is supporting some of the Middle East’s biggest projects, from Emaar’s Dubai Creek Harbour in the UAE to Halul Real Estate Investment Company’s Doha Oasis in Qatar.

Doha Oasis includes a high-end residential structure, comprising 14 nine-storey buildings that feature penthouses and 245 apartments. Its mixed-use podium will comprise housing and retail components, an indoor amusement theme park, a food court, cinemas, and cafes.

The consultancy boasts 500 staff across the Middle East, and its global workforce is 2,400-strong. Its Management Development Programme was formulated in 2014 to harness and develop talent, and offer employees the opportunities to broaden their business skills.

Faithful+Gould also launched the Women’s Business Network to improve gender diversity in its workforce and enable more women to attain senior-level positions in the company. Currently, 20% of the firm’s staff are women.

Campbell Gray, managing director for Faithful+Gould’s Middle East operations, said he believes these initiatives will help the consultancy overcome recruitment challenges in the region.

“Getting the right people is a typical challenge for the region – the kind we live with on a daily basis,” Gray told Construction Week.

“The mobilisation of big teams is why companies such as ours do so well: because we have deep resources and a reputation that attracts good people,” he added.
