The Start

Stemming from a late-night conversation on how the construction industry could be better, the founding partners - Luke, Martin & William - took it upon themselves to create the ideal answer - Compass was born


Small Steps

A loyal client-base was nurtured, serviced by a dynamic team of project managers, stepping outside of the UAE, taking on new geographic territories to deliver Muscat Duty Free in Oman



Big Strides

As word-of-mouth and clients’ needs grew, we evolved to support new challenges, with the addition of a Cost Management division, as well as venturing into our 3rd GCC country, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia


Move Making

A Riyadh office was established to support the Kingdom's Vision 2030

Our expertise were recognised via industry wins: 
‣Start-up of the Year - Middle East Consultant Awards 
‣Interior Fit-out Project of the Year, Flamingo Room - Commercial Interior Design Awards


Giant Leaps

Known for our reputation of pleasing clients, we were approached & accepted to acquire the UAE operations of US HQ'd Cumming Corporation

With amplified in-house experience we embarked on opening strategic offices in Jeddah & Abu Dhabi, whilst also venturing to support our clients in our 4ᵗʰ GCC country, Bahrain
