14 December 2009
Artillery Architecture and Interior Design has opened a branch office in Abu Dhabi. This is the UK-headquartered companyĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s second international office, after Melbourne, Australia.
Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“With our new branch, we hope to develop new and strategic alliances and partnerships, as we have done in London and Melbourne. Abu Dhabi is a key region for us to move into due to its fantastic market potential, and it is crucial that we are ideally placed to cultivate that growth, as well as provide global support to our portfolio of international clients,Ă˘â‚¬Âť said David Back, managing director, Artillery Architecture and Interior Design.
The new branch is located in Abu DhabiĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s Makeen Tower. It will be headed up by Steven Charlton, who was formerly business development manager at Hamilton International.
Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“Having seen the interiors market mature in Abu Dhabi over the last few years, I canĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t help but be excited at the potential of introducing ArtilleryĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s strong ethical and green credentials into the region at just the right time for potential clients requiring something more from their consultants,Ă˘â‚¬Âť Charlton said.
Artillery UAE will initially focus on the corporate sector, offering services such as workspace analysis, test fits, sustainable design, contractor supervision and management, in addition to innovative design.
