Dubai-headquartered engineering consulting WME has joined forces with Egis, a global player in the landscape.

In its third deal in 2022, Egis has acquired WME for an undisclosed sum. The deal follows an early-year acquisition in Hong Kong (Sunland, 130 staff) and one closed last month in the Netherlands (Nebu Transport Services, 10 staff).

The addition of WME significantly bolsters Egis’ footprint in the Middle East, with the majority of the firm’s 550 employees working across the region. WME also has offices in the United Kingdom, India and Singapore.

Founded just 10 years ago by Peyman Mohajer, WME is an engineering consultancy specialised in the design and delivery of projects in the built environment. The firm’s offerings comprise civil, structural, mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering, technology and IT security, architect of record and infrastructure engineering services.

Among the notable developments the firm worked on in the Middle East include Solitaire Mall in Jeddah, several pavilions at the Expo 2020 in Dubai, and the W Hotel and Nikki Beach Hotel & Resort in Dubai.

“WME is an ideal fit for Egis. The quality of the skillset it brings will drive substantial value for our employees and clients in the Middle East and beyond. In addition, WME’s presence in India is a major step forward in accelerating our development in the country,” said Laurent Germain, the CEO of Egis.

Meanwhile, for WME, the joining of forces provides the firm with “a rich talent pool and solutions portfolio, enabling us to deliver better design solutions on building and infrastructure projects for our clients,” said Mohajer. “Combining WME with Egis will create a powerful world-class engine of innovation capable of delivering a sustained competitive advantage in the region’s engineering consulting industry.”

Egis has around 17,000 employees working from 19 offices worldwide. The group generates more than €1 billion in revenues.
