• About

Since 1961, SSH has been committed to delivering architectural and engineering consultancy services throughout the MEA region, employing over 1,000 people within offices located in Abu Dhabi, Algeria, Bahrain, Dubai, Kuwait, London, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa and North Africa.

Our team of international and regional talent is focused on returning a high level of quality and value to our clients, forging strong, long-term relationships with both them and our industry partners, employees and investors.

SSH is small enough to be a trusted partner that can provide high levels of local understanding and commitment to the markets, intimacy, innovation and agility to quickly respond to market and client changing conditions, yet big enough to be trusted to deliver large, complex and sometimes challenging programme of works, with a proven track record of delivery to key regional clients.
