About

I am a certified project management professional PMP, with civil engineering background. I have 12 years of extensive experience in construction project management in the UAE working for Contractors and Employers with multi-billion projects portfolio. Since April 2010, I have been working for DAMAC Properties as a Senior Projects Manager. Before, I worked for different contractors in various senior positions relating to project management and contract administration. I am the Founder and Principal of Construction Management Guide (cmguide.org), the professional service provider and online knowledge portal founded in 2008 for construction professionals. Since January 2011, I have been teaching construction project management to undergraduate & postgraduate students as well as supervising MSc dissertations in Heriot Watt University-Dubai Campus. Currently, I am pursuing my PhD study in Construction Management. I hold a bachelor degree in Civil Engineering. In 2010, I completed my Master's Degree in Construction Project Management with Distinction from the UK. I have many international qualifications such as Project Management Professional (PMP), Associate Chartered Member at institute of Arbitrators (ACIArb) and Professional Member at Engineers Australia (MIEAust). I was the Chairperson of the Construction Lifecycle Risk International Conference held in Abu Dhabi 2011, and I am a regular speaker and trainer in international conferences, workshops and seminar events concerning Project Management, Contract Management and Dispute Resolution.
