Arab Engineering Bureau (AEB) was established in 1966 by the late Jamal Abdel Halim. Beginning with just seven employees in 1991, when the firm was acquired by its current CEO Ibrahim M. Jaidah, AEB's human resources have grown to a current figure of over 600 highly qualified professionals from 33 different nationalities who speak 40 different languages.
"AEB is a global multi-disciplinary architectural design consultancy that operates across the Middle East, including Doha, Abu Dhabi and South East Asia, with offices in Manila and Kuala Lumpur," said Ibrahim M. Jaidah to WhyQatar Magazine at Cityscape Qatar 2014. AEB recently established an office in Muscat, Oman. "AEB has completed numerous commercial, residential, civic, institutional, educational and historic preservation projects for a variety of public and private clients throughout Qatar, Abu Dhabi, Oman, Kuwait, Egypt, Yemen and Sudan," he added.
"AEB has been chosen numerous times to create landmark projects. Notable early projects include the Barzan Tower, acclaimed as one of the most famous buildings of the Doha skyline, and award-winning projects such as the Diplomatic Club and Al Shaqab Institute for Girls," noted Jaidah.
AEB works across extensively divergent project scales, typologies and environmental conditions.  Having undertaken projects of all sizes, from private villas to billion-dollar projects, AEB's extensive portfolio includes over 1,500 in-house completed projects.
 "At this moment, real estate in Qatar is growing at a phenomenal pace and will continue to record similar or even faster growth in the coming years. Like any country in the world, Qatar has suffered the consequences of the global recession. But that is over now. We are going through a very interesting stage of growth," noted Jaidah. "As consultants, we have a better feel for momentu. We are seeing big tenders now. Yet, the new airport has opened and many road related infrastructure projects have been executed. The government is spending billions of USD to meet the infrastructure demands, and accordingly, the private sector has to spend similar amounts to cater the complementary requirements. This would create excitement in the market," explained Jaidah who also believes that the new labor law will serve the contractors and the workers alike. "A more comfortable workforce can produce a better product," Jaidah confirmed.  
"When demand calls us, we definitely comply," said Jaidah. "Recently, demand is calling us to be in Dubai, and now we are in the verge of finalizing all official paperwork for opening our offices there," he added.
