Al Baha Engineering Consultants first opened its doors for business in 1992 due to the initiative of engineer Abdulla Mohammed Tayyeb Khoory. From day one, ‘quality’ has been the watchword of the firm, helping to build a large base of loyal clientele who are still continuing with their trust on us for all their construction requirements year after year.
The establishment of our firm coincided with the commencement of that extraordinary phase of development in Dubai which catapulted the emirate into the limelight and marked the beginning of its remarkable journey establishing itself as the prime investment and tourist destination in the region. Al Baha gained immence expreince and enhanced its expertise manifold during this phase and has since emerged as one of UAE’s leading consultancies.
Al Baha is part of the Al Khoory Group, which was established in 1972 by its Chairman Mr. Mohammed Tayyeb Khoory. Al Khoory Group has remained a key player in the region and has contributed enormously to the growth of the private sector in Dubai and UAE. During its 45 years of existence, Al Khoory Group has established itself as a reliable and committed conglomerate with diverse and proven excellence in all of the major fields, including real estate, hospitality, trading, automobiles and manufacturing.
