For nearly 60 years, SSH has played a leading role in shaping the Middle East’s built environment and infrastructure. Established in 1961, the company has evolved into one of the leading master planning, infrastructure, building design, construction supervision and project management firms in the Middle East, with a reputation for design integrity and a portfolio that includes several landmark projects in the region.
SSH has completed more than 1,000 projects and has been ranked the number one practice for fee-earning architects in the Middle East for a third year in a row by World Architecture Magazine. Along with its headquarters in Kuwait, SSH currently has offices in Abu Dhabi, Algeria, Bahrain, Dubai, London, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and South Africa.
At any given time, the firm is working on dozens of live projects, each with dedicated resources and personnel assigned– all utilising various Autodesk technologies that include BIM360 Design and BIM360 Docs.
“We have always been an advocate of 3D modelling and enhancing the information in our 3D modelling environment. The full implementation of BIM is a much wider context issue for the construction industry and there have been significant strides made to utilise models through the construction stages of delivery,” said Jason Palmer, Senior Architect at SSH.
However, with the adoption of remote working, the Leadership team at SSH has been faced with a raft of new challenges, requiring bold and innovative solutions that fully utilise the available technology.
