News from our Environmental Assessment & Remediation Team,

spotlighting our global projects and programs.

November, 2008, dawned with the opening of our latest branch of Woods Hole Group Middle East in Dubai, as part of TechnoPark near Jebel Ali on the border between Dubai and Abu Dhabi. This strategic office location in TechnoPark was chosen to take advantage of opportunities for environmental and engineering work in the two most active Emirates of the United Arab Emirates. Our offices, in the Metito Building, are modern and spacious, with easy access to major highways in Dubai.


The opening of the Branch Office crowns more than a decade of work in the UAE, beginning in the mid-1990's with some of the earliest offshore EIAs ever performed for the oil and gas industry in Abu Dhabi. Other branches in the Middle East include our headquarters in Riyadh, as well as a branch in Bahrain.

Present work in Dubai includes installation of a real-time video beach monitoring and analysis system for the Dubai Municipality, as well as other environmental work with various Dubai companies.

Woods Hole Group Middle East Dubai is managed on a day-by-day basis by the Deputy General Manager, Mr. Christopher Lees, who successfully transitioned across the Gulf to Dubai from his three years in the Riyadh office as Security and Logistics Director. Christopher is presently building up the staff and completing office opening and staffing formalities.

Please feel free to contact Mr. Lees (clees@whgrp.com) or Dr. David Aubrey (daubrey@whgrp.com, the General Manager of the office) with any questions you may have.
