Atkins Acuity has reclaimed its spot in the Construction Week Power 100 annual ranking. The strategic and financial advisory consultancy that is part of SNC-Lavalin Group, is led by Kathleen McGrail as its managing director for the MENA region.

The 2019 list featured Johan Hesselsøe, who held the same position for the MEA business operations. Hesselsøe, who is now the managing director of the MEA business for Faithful + Gould, was replaced by McGrail.

McGrail oversees Atkins Acuity’s strategic, financing, and technical consulting services. She has been associated with the company for eight years in key roles, growing and developing the Acuity business. Furthermore, McGrail boasts more than 20 years of experience in transformation, program and change management.

As part of its ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact, the SNC-Lavalin Group member recently released a report to inform consumers about the potential implications that the crisis may have on the Middle East’s transport sector.

Atkins Acuity delivers strategic planning in transport; energy and water; cities and urban infrastructure; portfolio, programme, and asset management. The company’s services also include ensuring bankability of infrastructure and real estate projects.
