Saudi Civil Defense approves fire and life safety consultancy AESG


UAE-based AESG, one of the leading specialist engineering and advisory firms, recently announced it has successfully achieved the status of Saudi Civil Defense approved Fire and Life Safety (FLS) Consultants. This follows two years of focused effort by the firm in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to establish itself as a fully licensed Saudi professional entity for engineering services, train and certify its FLS resources, engage with regulatory authorities, and demonstrate its alignment with the country’s Saudization agenda.

As per the source, The firm will work to ensure Saudi developers comply with the new Saudi Building Codes thereby reducing their risk of potential loss of life or property damage by a factor of 100. The firm’s extensive presence and commitment to the Kingdom will grant the country’s developers access to a pool of highly qualified consultants, thereby enabling them to strictly adhere to the FLS requirements of the new Saudi Building Codes which were issued in 2018 and implemented in July 2021.

Commenting on the value of adhering to the stipulations of the FLS code, Saeed Al Abbar, CEO at AESG said, “Becoming a fully licensed Saudi engineering firm and Saudi Civil Defense approved FLS Consultant is a further step in our commitment and expansion to the Saudi market. AESG’s international experience throughout the Middle East, Asia, the UK and Europe, coupled with our deep local understanding of the Saudi market enable us to work closely and effectively with clients and local authorities to deliver the best outcomes.”

With the Saudi Civil Defense FLS approval, AESG’s consultants will now work closely with the authority to ensure new and existing building designs and implementations comply with the Saudi Building Codes. “Our efforts mean that developers of the giga-projects taking place in Saudi Arabia have easy access to qualified, locally based Fire and Life Safety experts. This fulfills a pressing need for these professionals and will ensure these ambitious projects can proceed at pace, and in-line with highest safety standards,” said Al Abbar.
