Following our 40th Anniversary book launch and exhibition, we’d like to share with you ‘More Than Architecture’ – the first ‘moment’ from our book ’40 Moments:40 Years’.
Established in 1976
Brewer Smith Brewer Gulf (BSBG) was established in Dubai in 1976, and has played a part in the development of some of the UAE’s most striking architecture ever since. Now in its 40th year, the practice draws on expertise accumulated in the Middle East and North Africa to present innovative and creative architecture of a consistently high standard; something which has garnered BSBG a significant reputation throughout the region.
More Than Architecture…
As a multi-disciplinary practice, BSBG is more than architecture – though that remains its most prominent discipline. Engineering, Interior Design, Contract Administration, Construction Supervision, Lead Consultancy and Authority Approvals are just a selection of the design and construction solutions BSBG provides, using innovation, technical excellence and a distinctly personalised service as the foundations of delivery.
A Wealth of Experience
The practice has an internationally diverse and talented design team with a deep-rooted understanding of the region’s social and cultural landscape. Design capabilities continue to advance to new levels, and client relationships strengthen – based upon BSBG’s focus on budget and programme – with no compromise on quality.
The success and development of BSBG can be largely attributed to the vision and directives of Managing Partner, Alistair McMillan, who gave the practice a definitive direction when he joined in 1995, and has been responsible for its development ever since. The advancement owes also to the resolve and commitment of each individual member of the team.
A Leading Practice
As the practice and the projects have grown, the culture and the expertise has strengthened, and BSBG is now one of the leading full service practices in the Middle East.
