HKA has announced that Crispin Cockman has rejoined the company as a Director, and will relocate from the UK to be based in HKA’s office in Dubai.

According to HKA, Cockman is a Chartered Quantity Surveyor with approximately 35 years of experience across major construction projects across various sectors of the industry.

At the 2021 Middle East Consultant Awards HKA was announced as the winner in the ‘Dispute Resolution & Claims Specialist of the Year’ category and, in April 2022, Mahmoud Abougabal joined HKA’s Expert Services Team as Director.

“Crispin is a valuable addition to our team for clients and peers alike. We are delighted that he has decided to re-join HKA after we worked together in KSA. With his technical and managerial background combined with his past experience working in the Middle East, he will be an excellent cultural fit within our organisation,” said Haroon Niazi, Partner & Head of Middle East.

The firm pointed out that Cockman’s experience as a senior manager, professional quantity surveyor and commercial manager has seen him work across the UK, the Middle East and South Africa involving work on major power plants, oil and gas installations and major commercial buildings.

He is said to specialise in the analysis of contract pricing and is also experienced in the preparation and assessment of claims on behalf of both contractor’s and employers, and in the preparation of numerous expert witness reports on matters of quantum.

In June 2022, HKA’s Nurul Sabri said that overcoming pay disparity based on ethnicity will require commitment of all levels and a strong collaborative approach.
