Amey's consulting team has secured Grade A Civil Engineering Registration for its business in Qatar meaning it can tender for projects that would not normally be open to international firms.
Completing the registration has taken over a year and has involved establishing a permanent business in Qatar, undergoing written exams and submitting a case to the Engineering Committee at the Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME).
Steven Yule, Amey’s international business development manager, said: “Obtaining Engineering Registration has been one of the more significant challenges during my four years working for Amey in Qatar. Through the professional commitment and support of our dedicated engineers, and through the wider support of our colleagues in the UK, we have achieved a major milestone for Amey’s committed presence in Qatar.”
Richard Allen, Amey’s business director in Qatar, added: “Achieving Engineering Registration in Qatar supports our international growth aspirations, and further demonstrates our commitment to the local and regional market.”
Amey has had a presence in Qatar since 2012, providing a range of professional services to the country's highways authority, Ashghal, as well as providing asset management advisory services into a number of work streams for Kahramaa, the state owned utilities provider.
