AbdelMonem Refaat, Principal Architect at SSH, presented to delegates attending The Big 5 Talks series of events as part of the Dubai edition of The Big 5 International Building & Construction Show, being held on 26-29 November 2018.
The Big 5 is a touring conference and exhibition that gathers global construction expertise into one place for four days of product research, discovery and business. The event enables industry professionals to network and meet experts with detailed knowledge of all aspects of the construction sector.
The Big 5 Talks series covers design, building information modelling (BIM), project management and architecture. AbdelMonem’s talk entitled ‘Architectural Dimension on the Rising Demand for Modest, Sustainable Housing’, presented the case for affordable housing in the GCC and how the architecture and engineering community could meet the incrementally growing demand for more modest homes across the region
With more than 16 years of international experience, AbdelMonem specialises in creating commercial, hospitality and residential projects, and master planned developments. As Principal Architect at SSH, he has taken the lead on landmark projects for some of the region’s top-tier developers, which enables him to share his extensive knowledge to delegates at the event.
“It was a fantastic experience to be able to speak at The Big 5,” said AbdelMonem of the event. “Key stakeholders need to consider a more sustainable model for housing in the region. This event is a great platform to put forward SSH’s view on this issue.”
The Big 5 2018 is open daily from 11:00am to 7:00pm and runs until 29 November 2018 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
