United Arab Emirates (UAE)

COWI Gulf A/S UAE Branch (COWI UAE) is part of COWI group, a leading international consulting group whose parent company is based in Denmark. COWI has been present in the UAE since the early 1990s.

COWI's first project in UAE was in 1990. The project involved assessing concrete damages in bridges and tunnels for the Dubai Municipality. With this COWI soon established itself as the expert within this field and carried out services on Dubai Municipality HQ, Shindagha Tunnel, JAFZA port, Dubai Drydocks, Nadd Al Sheba Palace, DUBAL and numerous smaller assignments. Since then, COWI UAE has grown and expanded its operation.

In 2011, COWI's offices in the UAE became part of the COWI Group's Major Business Line "Bridge, Tunnel and Marine Structures" and are today fully dedicated to these three specialist areas. It is now in the high end of the consultancy market, ensuring high quality deliveries.
