Populous opens doors on new base in Dubai

by Andrew Manns | 26 Sep 2018

Global architecture and design practice Populous has opened an office in the Dubai World Trade Centre, its first in the Middle East and Africa (MENA) region.

The move coincides with the company’s additional announcement at the beginning of the week that it would also open an office in Dallas.

Ben Vickery, senior principal and Dubai office lead, said: “Establishing an office in the Gulf will enable Populous to be closer to our clients, consultants and contractors in the region, improving communication and co-ordination for current and future projects in the Middle East”

“I’m very excited about the opportunity to bring Populous unsurpassed experience to our Middle-East clients. A strong regional presence will enable Populous to offer our truly world-class, cutting-edge design experience with local knowledge, experience and support.”

The Dallas and Dubai openings extend Populous' presence to 17 offices worldwide.
