Atkins has been appointed to set up and run the Regulatory Authority for the building and construction sector in Abu Dhabi. The project is being overseen by Al Ain Municipality, one of three municipalities in the Emirate, with Atkins’ staff working in the Municipality offices.
Atkins has recruited and motivated skilled and experienced safety professionals, despite being constrained to short term contracts. We ensured the work in our organisation added to their CVs and capability by providing Continuing Professional Development opportunities, including training to become a regulator, mentoring and on-site experience with different types of safety challenge in the construction industry.
Atkins worked closely with the three Abu Dhabi Municipalities and demonstrated the importance of an integrated regulatory system across the region.
