Horton Interiors, one of the UAE’s most trusted design and build fit-out firms, is marking ten years in business with a new office in Abu Dhabi. Established as a Dubai maintenance company in 2012, Horton Interiors has evolved to offer a complete design and build solution, growing its client base to include some of the biggest names in the region. As well as opening its new office, the company has increased its headcount by 50% to deliver larger projects across the Emirates.
The last twelve months have seen several strategic management appointments, including Douglas Drummond (ex-Perkins & Will) as Managing Director, Neelanchana Kumar as Design Director, Abdelmouamine Bougandoura as Operations Director, and Jerry George as Finance Manager. Daniel Craig has joined the team as Business Development Manager, and Aitzaz Ahmad has been promoted to Senior Business Development Manager. The company has also rebranded and relaunched its website to reflect a forward-thinking approach combining technology, sustainability, creativity, and well-being.
Managing Director Douglas Drummond commented: “Horton has built a strong reputation over the past ten years, and we will maintain the same commitment to quality as we move forward into our next phase of growth. The demand for design and build has increased as more clients seek better value and faster project delivery. Our mission is to create and deliver unique concept designs in the quickest timeframes with the best ROI. Having skilled design, procurement, and construction management teams in-house means we can consider all aspects of a design to achieve superior results.”
Horton Interiors has a diverse client portfolio across several sectors. Some notable projects completed over the last 12 months include The Bureau Business Centre, the UAE’s first female-focused co-working centre; the first physical store for sustainable fashion retailers, The Giving Movement in Mall of the Emirates; a new regional office for architecture giants Gensler in Abu Dhabi; Allsopp & Allsopp’s new Agent Hub in Motor City; Ras Al Khaimah’s largest co-working centre; Middlesex University’s new Academic City campus. The firm is currently in phase three of renovating the J Club health and wellness destination in Jumeirah Beach Hotel.
