Cun­dall ap­points head for its Civil En­gi­neer­ing team.

French has been with Cun­dall for more than 17 years and has led and man­aged de­sign teams and projects all across the UK, the Mid­dle East and Africa.

French’s pri­mary fo­cus will be to en­hance Cun­dall’s re­gional op­er­a­tions and the Civil and In­fra­struc­ture brand in the Mid­dle East.

Talk­ing about the ap­point­ment, French said: “I am ex­tremely ex­cited to be re-join­ing the MENA lead­er­ship team and to be head­ing up the Civil of­fer­ing in Dubai. Cun­dall are now very well-es­tab­lished right across the MENA re­gion with a fan­tas­tic port­fo­lio of projects and I am re­ally look­ing for­ward to be­ing part of the con­tin­ued de­vel­op­ment and growth. At Cun­dall, we have made it our mis­sion to cre­ate fan­tas­tic built en­vi­ron­ments and have a pos­i­tive im­pact on our com­mu­ni­ties. At this junc­ture, on the re­lease of our new Sus­tain­abil­ity Roadmap, we have a real op­por­tu­nity to work with our MENA Clients to de­liver on that prom­ise and cre­ate truly amaz­ing sus­tain­able build­ing and in­fra­struc­ture projects. Also, be­ing able to of­fer Civil En­gi­neer­ing lo­cally from Dubai for the first time re­ally strength­ens our mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary ap­proach and so­lid­i­fies our com­mit­ment to the Global mar­ket. It is very ex­cit­ing times at Cun­dall and we are hope­ful that our con­tin­ued de­vel­op­ment will demon­strate our com­mit­ment to our ex­ist­ing Clients and pro­vide a whole new host of op­por­tu­ni­ties for the busi­ness.”

French has been with Cun­dall since 2001 and he joins the Dubai of­fice from New­cas­tle in the UK, hav­ing pre­vi­ously been based in the re­gion for four years.

French is a Char­tered Civil En­gi­neer (Mem­ber of the In­sti­tu­tion of Civil En­gi­neer) and Char­tered Con­struc­tion Man­ager (Mem­ber of the Char­tered In­sti­tute of Build­ing). Richard Strat­ton, a part­ner and re­gional man­ag­ing di­rec­tor at Cun­dall said: “It is great to have Lee back in the re­gion to fur­ther strengthen our team. He is a great as­set to the busi­ness and a fu­ture leader, bring­ing a pas­sion and com­mit­ment that our clients will come to value as much as we do.”

Cun­dall cur­rently has two per­ma­nent and two as­so­ciate of­fices in the MENA re­gion, with more than 100 staff be­tween them, and have been in­volved in a di­verse range of projects in­clud­ing Al Ain Mixed-use De­vel­op­ment and Sta­dium project, Amer­i­can Uni­ver­sity of Shar­jah, Bahrain Bay Mas­ter­plan, In­ter­sect by Lexus, Lu­sail Light Rail Tran­sit (LRT), New Hamad Port Project in its port­fo­lio.
