Aurecon offers unlimited Architect of Record services in Dubai and Abu Dhabi

Jumeirah Al Naseem

Jumeirah Al Naseem in Dubai

14 July 2017 - The Middle East is a place where big dreams come to life; where projects are often described in terms of superlatives – biggest, tallest, latest, and fastest. To carry their weight, projects of this calibre require not only flawless design, but speedy and sound execution.

To support clients in bringing their boldest and bravest visions to reality, Aurecon is offering unlimited Architect of Record (AOR) service in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. With a strong cloud-based foundation, the service will provide premium consultation to architects, developers and owners in a country which is increasingly recognised for its progressive and contemporary architecture.

The new AOR service will allow Aurecon to take a lead consultant role in projects through integrating local code requirements with its engineering design solutions and facilitating a smooth approval process with the relevant authorities. As part of this service, Aurecon will act as a bridge between the design ideas of the architect and owner and the practical considerations for construction. 

This service will harness digital solutions enabling the company to collaborate more effectively with multiple stakeholders in a typical mega project in the two Emirates. By creating a virtual reality experience of the design during development, clients will have better visibility over timelines and costs over the course of their projects. 

Team building

In addition to launching the AOR service, Aurecon has also announced several major appointments to strengthen its regional team: Rudi Rautenbach, Risk Advisory Lead, David Moore, Country Manager of Qatar, and David Martin, Head of Utilities & Masterplanning, will each bring increased skill and experience to the growing Aurecon leadership team in the region.

Rudi RautenbachRudi Rautenbach is an experienced professional in the built environment segment with core skills in leading risk management as well as asset management on major projects. Proficient in the ten knowledge areas of the project management body of knowledge (PMBOK), he has a track record of developing new risk and asset management models, and risk management policy strategies. His project portfolio includes a tall tower in Dubai and dozens of major energy, transport and infrastructure projects in Africa.

David MooreDavid Moore has been with Aurecon since 2001 and is particularly experienced in the design and construction of bridges and other transport infrastructure in the Middle East. He is currently leading Aurecon’s Design Verification Engineering team on the Doha Metro project, directing and coordinating a large multidisciplinary engineering team. David replaces Roy Fullard who takes on a new role within Aurecon, managing a major project in Dubai.

David MartinDavid Martin is a seasoned expert in environment and planning in infrastructure and utilities projects, and brings over 33 years’ experience to his new role. He has overseen and managed multidisciplinary teams of transport planners and infrastructure engineers on a series of major development projects. His specialisations include delivering inputs for sustainable development and security, as well as fire and life safety for masterplanning projects. 

The new appointments and service will further strengthen Aurecon’s capabilities to add value to their clients’ businesses, according to Aurecon’s Regional Director for the Middle East, Ermis Marques.

“Our focus on bringing clients’ ideas to life means evolving our services and the talent we employ to ensure our team is ready to take on the biggest challenges our clients may face today and in future,” he said.
