PASADENA, CA (December 17, 2018) – The annual Middle East Consultant Awards recognize innovation and achievements in the industry, rewarding outstanding individuals and companies. Parsons is pleased to be among the companies honored at the 2018 awards ceremony—taking home not one, but two awards.
Parsons was named Technology Champion of the Year as well as Multi-discipline Consulting Company of the Year. The Technology Champion of the Year award honors a consultant that has developed or deployed a new technology that has enabled it to better serve client requirements. The Multi-discipline Consulting Company of the Year award celebrates a firm that has made a significant contribution to the region’s built environment within the past year.
In 2018, our achievements have encompassed our collaboration with the American University of Sharjah to prepare students for technology careers and our launch of DOMAIN6™, the world’s first fully converged solution to thwart attacks on operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) environments, to our high-efficiency lighting design of the Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Highway, which set a Guinness World Record as the longest highway lit with LED lights.
“We’re extremely honored to have received these two prestigious awards,” said Parsons Middle East Africa President Gary Adams. “Our talented team and technological prowess have made us innovators in the region.”
The 2018 Middle East Consultant Awards took place in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates. The winners were chosen by a panel of respected judges from various construction disciplines to ensure a balanced viewpoint and a fair result. For more information, visit https://meconsultantawards.com/.
