TBY talks to Sausan Bahnasi, CEO, Golf Scaffolding Factory (Member of RS Group), on the sector.

Sausan Bahnasi

What differentiates Golf Scaffolding from its competitors?

Golf Scaffolding is a highly specialized formwork engineering solutions provider that offers a variety of services to the construction and building industry. Our ability to offer safe and sustainable formwork systems that are flexible to contractors and consultants for complex project requirements, while being able to support them on site with a wide range of technical services, has helped us win several big contracts. What truly sets us apart from the competition, though, is the quality of our work. We are one of the first companies in the country to be certified under the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System.

How would you assess the strength of the market and its reaction to broader economic factors?

After the 2008 crisis, the economic slowdown affected every sector of the local and international economy. However, since 2013 we have witnessed a strong recovery, especially in Sharjah. The last three years have been very strong in terms of company expansion and participation in projects across the UAE. Furthermore, there is a renewed demand for infrastructure improvement and new buildings, especially in newly developing areas like eastern Sharjah and the Northern Emirates.
