Al Habtoor Engineering

The birth of the Al Habtoor Group all started in the 1970s with Al Habtoor Engineering, a small construction. The company went on to become one of the leading construction firms in the region, successfully delivering numerous large-scale projects throughout the Middle East – including, in 1999, the Burj Al Arab, the iconic symbol of modern Dubai.

In 2007, the Group policy shifted its core activities to hospitality and automotive. Al Habtoor Group decided to sell its majority stakes in Al Habtoor Engineering to Gulf Leighton, the Leighton Group’s original operating company in the Gulf region. Since then, the combined entity, known as Habtoor Leighton Group (HLG) has developed an extensive track record in large-scale projects across the region. Today, HLG is one of the leading diversified international contractors in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

HLG focuses on five core market sectors:

  • Infrastructure
  • Building
  • Rail
  • Oil and Gas
  • Mining
