Hirsch Bedner reveal Middle East expansion plans

Interior design specialists Hirsch Bedner Associates say it is set to expand activity across the Middle East with upcoming projects in Saudi Arabia, Libya and Jordan.

The company has mapped out plans for further expansion in the regional market following a year of growth in 2013. Its Dubai operations has increased its revenue in the last two years by 50% to $10m –  almost 10% of total global revenue

New developments include the Grand Hyatt Mecca in Saudi Arabia, the Corinthia Hotel Benghazi in Libya and the Saraya Aqaba Resort in Jordan.

Leila Abdulrahim, director, HBA Middle East said: “This year has been a major success for HBA MENA, with prestigious projects completed such as the new Al Manzil living room concept in Dubai, both of which earned HBA Dubai recent awards, along with the St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, and the St Regis Nations Towers, in Abu Dhabi which opened this year.

“There is huge potential in the region, especially following the Dubai Expo 2020 win, with several prestigious hotel brands pledging to more than triple room numbers by the time the Expo comes around.

“We have plans in motion to emulate the success of 2013 and secure further world-class projects in the Middle East and wider region.”
