Oliver Plunkett

Company: Buro Happold

Designation: Managing director Middle East

After six years at Buro Happold, Oliver Plunkett was made regional managing director. He has led the firm in Saudi Arabia and sparked its renaissance with a series of landmark projects across the Kingdom and the wider Gulf nations, including the National Bank of Kuwait HQ and Queen Alia International Airport in Jordan. “2014 was a year of impressive progress on a number of iconic developments in the Middle East,” he told Construction Week. “The Louvre topped out with the dome, and in Saudi Arabia the King Abdulaziz Centre for World Culture has reached a similar stage with the tubular veil of shimmering external cladding taking shape, to name a few.”
