Broadway Malyan braced for Abu Dhabi redundancies

The Abu Dhabi office of Broadway Malyan is considering making up to six redundancies, following the completion of several of its major projects in the region.

A ‘review’ of the Abu Dhabi operations is taking place, despite the recent approval of the practice’s masterplan for a new 680 hectare waterfront community on Yas Island (pictured).

Ian Apsley, director of Broadway Malyan, said: “We are currently consulting with six members of permanent staff over possible redundancies as part of a review of our Abu Dhabi-based operations.

“[This is] to ensure that we perform as effectively and efficiently as possible in terms of delivering on commitments to existing clients and with a view to securing future business. As the outcome of the review becomes clear we will prioritise communication with our employees.”

Apsley revealed that the Abu Dhabi team expanded by 50% over the last 18 months and has now completed projects such as Al Bandar, as well as concept masterplans for Yas Island and the 10×10’ project in Iraq and seven schools for the Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC).

He added: “The review will ensure that we sustain a healthy, robust and profitable regional business to deliver a committed pipeline of projects.”

UK headquartered Broadway Malyan has 15 offices around the globe including Shanghai, São Paulo, Singapore and Mumbai.
