According to *Tradearabia news report, leading global professional services company Turner & Townsend has announced the opening of two new offices in Saudi Arabia to further extend its coverage across the Gulf region.

The offices in Riyadh and Al Khobar are strategically located to provide specialist services to clients in the Kingdom, benefiting from investment driven by the government’s Saudi Vision 2030.

The company said Saudi Vision 2030 was driving demand for construction in the country. With more than 4,700 active construction projects worth an estimated $285 billion, the sector is showing increasing potential in both the residential and commercial segments.

Turner & Townsend has operated in the GCC region since 2006, supporting government entities and multinational corporations with the delivery of iconic regional programmes which have shaped the construction industry and raised industry standards across the region.

The company operates 106 offices across the world and specialises in programme management, project management, cost and commercial management and advisory across the real estate, infrastructure and natural resources sectors.  

On the new offices, Regional Managing Director Alan Talabani said: "We are extremely excited to extend our services offering to the kingdom at this time of unprecedented changes. These new offices will help us continue to provide high-quality consultancy and drive better performance for clients and their investors in the GCC region."

The company is progressing with staff transfers supplemented by external recruitment. It is anticipated that by the end of 2018, Turner & Townsend’s Saudi business will add significant value to company’s regional operations and targets.

Simon Trafford, the Saudi resident director, said the construction market priorities in the kingdom are aligned with the country’s Vision 2030.

"We are delighted that we have opened our offices in good time allowing us to be a part of a construction market with an enormous potential," he added.
