CIOB to move into Abu Dhabi

The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) is to expand into the UAE Capital Abu Dhabi, it announced this week.

It said that despite reports that the construction industry is slowing down in the Middle East there is still huge interest in its qualification, advice and expertise in the region.

The move will follow the CIOB's Dubai launch last November and is part of its plan to support industry and key development projects in the Middle East, as well as creating a link with the Indian Sub Continent.

CIOB head of international Fabio Casula said: “Dubai was never intended to be the sole focus of our expansion plans.

"Abu Dhabi represents a major area of expansion of our activities and our experience, research and feedback from our members shows that, the industry and professionals in the Middle East are ready for quality rather than quantity in construction. Our institute is strategically positioned to respond to such demands.

“There are major construction projects still being undertaken in Abu Dhabi, this is a centre of activity that the industry and professionals cannot afford to miss. The CIOB will be there to respond to the challenges of the industry in the current and future climate.”
