#9: Emad Azmy, ASGC

During the past year (April 1, 2017 till May 31, 2018), Dubai-based contractor, ASGC, has been the main contractor for a number of reputed projects, including City Walk Phase 2 in Dubai, Green Community expansion Phase 1, Enterprise Command and Control Centre, and many more. Which, in turn, catapulted ASGC to bag the sixth position in this year’s Power Hour.

Since it was established, ASGC has delivered commercial complexes, high-rise buildings, hotels and resorts, industrial projects, and landmark social infrastructure developments. Amongst these are blue-chip names such as Sustainability Pavilion, Six Flags, Mohammed bin Rashid Library, Dubai Arena, Bluewaters Island, Taj Hotel, Marina Bloom, MediClinic Parkview Hospital, and Dubai International Airport Improvement Works.

Azmy tells CBNME: “We are committed to staying agile in an evolving industry, particularly given the global economic and political shifts that are currently taking place. To meet the market’s opportunities, we are investing in innovation —particularly technology innovation. We understand that every single industry will go through massive digital disruption over the coming years. That is why we appointed our first chief information officer in 2017, to help the company in the adoption of new technologies that will add value to ASGC’s partners, customers, and employees.

“We are using technology in the UAE construction projects to boost efficiency, quality, and safety, leaps and bounds away from our sector’s traditional practices. Ultimately, the outlook for ASGC is positive for 2018. Our clients can expect more from us this year as we hand over exceptional projects.”

He continues: “Geographically, we are looking at expanding in existing markets and to new ones. This year, the largest geographies for this year for our operations are UAE, Egypt, Angola, Kenya, and Ghana. Lastly, this year, ASGC is focusing on diversification into infrastructure and on Africa expansion.”

Under Azmy’s leadership, ASGC has become a preferred partner to government-related enterprises in the UAE. The company has won a number of awards and appreciations in the market and continues to receive the client’s recognitions and appreciations on its high level of performance on the projects, quality, and on time delivery.
