Dewan Architects positive on UAE real estate
Posted by Bob Brunskill

Dewan Architects & Engineers, a leading architectural and engineering consultancy firm in the Middle East, has expressed optimism about the UAE real estate sector's growth prospects following its participation at Cityscape Global 2010.

The event, which ends today (October 7th) at the Dubai World Trade Centre, featured a speech by Dewan chairman and founder Mohammed Al Assam entitled "Adopting a credible, coherent and practical architectural style in the Middle East".

Mr Al Assam noted that the Middle East market appeared to be rebounding after the global downturn and pointed to recent Dubai Chamber figures that showed that over $700 billion-worth of construction projects are either at design stage or already under way in the UAE.

"We are glad to report that we are continuously moving forward with all of our projects. In fact, we received an overwhelmingly positive response at Cityscape Global and we regard our participation here as a great success," he said.
