The American Concrete Institute announced earlier this month the opening of a new regional office in Dubai.

The Middle East Regional Office, headed by Ahmad Mhanna, ACI’s newly appointed Middle East Regional Director, will focus on advancing the development, dissemination and adoption of ACI consensus-based knowledge on concrete and its uses in the region.

“This office will lead efforts to establish and nurture a wide range of strategic relationships between ACI members, chapters, companies, governmental bodies, educational institutions, partners and other construction industry organizations throughout the region and beyond,” said Mhanna.

According to the organization, the opening marks ACI’s first presence outside the United States since its inception in 1904.

“In addition to strengthening strategic relationships and increasing access to the Institute’s consensus-based technical and educational resources, it is the intent of the American Concrete Institute that our Middle East Regional Office serves as a vehicle for increasing the awareness of regional concrete design and construction practices,” said Ronald G. Burg, P.E., Executive Vice President, American Concrete Institute.

“All of us in the global concrete community can learn from and be inspired by the tremendous concrete innovation happening here in the Middle East.”
