Nakheel has appointed Shatha Saif Al Suwaidi as the new MD of its infrastructure project construction unit. In line with her role, she is leading the delivery of all infrastructure work at Nakheel’s master communities across Dubai.

Her current focus is said to be the delivery of key projects at Deira Islands, including the main access bridge, as well as the access bridge to Al Khail Avenue mall at Jumeirah Village Triangle, as well as projects in Al Furjan, Warsan Village, Palm Jumeirah, International City and Madinat Al Arab.

Nakheel said her appointment comes as part of its commitment to the development of young, talented UAE nationals into senior positions within the organisation. The developer notes that it employs a growing team of emirati men and women who continue to prove their ability to deliver.

Al Suwaidi holds a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Sharjah and a master’s degree in Urban Planning from the American University of Sharjah. She began her career at the Directorate of Public Works in Sharjah before joining Nakheel in 2007.

Since joining the master developer, she is said to have successfully completed infrastructure projects covering roads, bridges, power substations and utilities at Palm Jumeirah, Deira Islands, International City and Jumeirah Village, the statement said.

U+A and Aros have announced a partnership to provide design and delivery services in the UK and across other international markets. The firms will partner on large projects in the master-planning, architectural and interior design sectors.

According to a statement, the firms will leverage global knowledge and local expertise to work on “significant projects” in the UK, Europe, South East Asia and the Middle East. Residential, hospitality, entertainment, commercial and education projects are to be the main focus, through the assembly of teams best qualified to work on specific opportunities, the firm said.

“The strength of our collaboration relies on our wide range of projects from residential to master-planning, from low-rise to high-rise. Being together, we can offer extensive design solutions supported with strong technical knowledge and the proven ability to deliver projects for prominent developers and investors, many of whom are looking for opportunities in the UK,” said Pedram Rad, managing director at U+A.

The collaboration is said to already be active, with new projects being designed at the new American School in Dubai, on two residential towers in Europe and a new resort in Saudi Arabia.

The shared design ethos and pursuit of high standards has led to established relationships with the Middle East’s most prominent developers and investors, many of whom are looking for opportunities in the UK, the statement said.
