CIOB to enter Middle East

The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) is to establish a number of regional centres across the Middle East in order to support members working throughout Gulf states.

"Construction professionals in the Middle East operate across borders on a regular basis, and the establishment of a regional support network throughout these key areas of activity will allow us to better serve the needs of industry and the professionals operating within it," said Fabio Casula, the CIOB's head of international.

The Institute says that establishing a network of regional support centres will enable it to better assist members than other strategies such as a single main office.

Its goal is to play a major role in supporting industry, professionals and key development projects in the Middle East as well as creating a link with the Indian Sub Continent.

"We have had tremendous response and feedback from the industry and our members and have acknowledged the importance of focusing on the Middle East as a region rather than reacting to market activity in individual areas.

The CIOB will announce its plans at a forthcoming construction event in Dubai, on the 23rd November.
