The firm has been working in the Middle East since late 1970s. Its current projects are in six countries in the region, including Abu Dhabi and Dubai in the U.A.E., Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Turkey.

“Opening these offices shows our continued commitment in the region and will allow us to continue growing in accordance with our plans for the Middle East,” said Manny Velivasakis, managing principal, Thornton Tomasetti, in the release. “Many of our clients, including Turner Construction Co., FX Fowle and KPF, are operating in the Middle East, and all three of our practice areas—Building Structure, Building Skin and Building Performance—will expand in the region.”

Kyle Krall, a principal of Thornton Tomasetti, will relocate to the region in January to operate the Abu Dhabi and Dubai offices.

"Kyle has proved highly skilled at managing some of our more challenging projects, including the innovative New York Times building," said Tom Scarangello, chairman. "In Abu Dhabi and Dubai, Kyle is already heavily involved with business development and construction administration. He is ideally suited to coordinate the efforts of our worldwide offices as we expand our business in the Middle East."
