Top 20 contracts signed in 2014

According to figures released by Ventures Middle East earlier this year, there were $83.5bn worth of construction projects to be delivered across the GCC in 2014 – up from $70bn last year.

And a report on the market by accountancy firm Deloitte stated the industry is now valued at $1.3tn, with $938bn of projects in the pipeline and the remainder either already tendered, in design pases or under study.

Throughout the last 12 months there have been scores of contracts signed across the GCC, covering infrastructure projects, transport, oil and gas and retal and hospitality.
