The Middle East Consultant Awards, now in its fifth year, acknowledges the region’s best multi-discipline construction consultants, architects and the multitude of specialists in structural engineering, MEP, urban design, sustainability and other fields that make up all the facets of the construction industry. This 2019 edition attracted more than 160 nominations from regional consultants across 20 categories.
Commenting on the awards wins, Cris Dedigama, CEO of SNC-Lavalin’s Atkins, Middle East & Africa, said: “Fostering a diverse and an inclusive working environment is a key enabler for growing our business and developing the best talent across the region. Congratulations to everyone involved in this great achievement, and we look forward to continue leading the way for promoting gender diversity in the construction industry.”
