SETS Goes Up The Ranks: 176 Worldwide


For the second year in a row, SETS has been included in Engineering News Record’s (ENR) list of the Top 225 International Design Firms. This year, the company has improved in its ranking from 184 to 176 worldwide, and is now among the top 10 design firms in the Middle East.

The ranking gives SETS stronger grounds with leading international design companies in terms of visibility. It also gives it high recognition by many of its distinguished clients.

In an e-mail to the company’s family, Dr. Isam Kaysi, SETS’ Chairman, thanked all employees across disciplines, positions and departments for their effort. “This achievement would not have been possible without the contribution and dedication of all  engineers, architects, designers, business developers, technicians, managers, directors, administrators and project managers in the different offices and sites” he said, adding: “We are proud of you for setting your sights high, and making every effort to maintain the highest standards”.

In the 2017 Top 225 International Design Firms list, firms are ranked based on their 2016 design revenue from projects outside of their home countries, measuring their presence in international commerce. The full rankings are available here.
