Lyndon Hives
Preconstruction Director, McLaren Construction LLC, UAE

Originally from the United Kingdom and from a Quantity Surveying background, I have over 28 years of experience in the construction industry.

I achieved the qualification of MCIOB (Member of the Chartered Institute of Building) in 1997 following lengthy part-time studies and my Professional Interview and later successfully achieved fellowship of the Institute. (FCIOB)

I have actively participated in the Institute both in the UK and in the UAE, holding the position of Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Branch for 2 Years and Vice Chairman of the Dubai Branch for 3 years.

Having worked for various Large National Construction companies in the UK, both in a QS and Estimation role, my final employment in the UK was as Preconstruction Manager for John Sisk and Son Ltd.

I was asked to then assist in setting up the UAE Business in 2009 and successfully set up and ran the Preconstruction Department for both Dubai and AD between 2009 and 2011.

Having been approached by McLaren in 2011, I joined the company when we had less than 10 employees and as Preconstruction Director has been heavily involved in growing the business successfully up to circa 350 employees in the UAE, in addition to the 800+ we have in the UK Business.

McLaren successfully deliver projects in all sectors, but with a strong focus on industrial, logistics, cold storage and production facilities along with aviation projects with a number of Blue Chip Clients and focusing on repeat business and building relationships.

As well as a strong reputation for project delivery to a high level of quality and safety and in a timely manner, we have the additional benefit of being able to offer construction finance options through our partnership with UKEF (UK Export Finance).
