RSP’s reach has steadily grown over the years and today, it proudly supports multiple leading & progressive governments as well as private sector Clients, including several who proudly feature amongst the world’s top 1,000 companies. Inspite of its large geographical footprint, RSP continues to provide its hallmark ‘on-the-ground’ customized service to Clients within Asia, Middle East, Australasia, Africa and Europe. With a team of 1,300 professionals worldwide, the RSP model is based on optimally utilizing the expertise of its global talent pool. RSP’s approach is therefore well-known and widely recognized.
For Clients who prefer a ‘one-stop’ service provider, RSP provides the services of a Lead Consultant with responsibility for all design services including architecture, interior design, engineering and specialist services. RSP, with its unique suite of modular services, is therefore able to customize and cater on a project-by-project basis, in accordance with each Client’s requirements.
In 2008, RSP initiated on-the-ground operations in the Middle-East and despite the recent global economic downturn, it has remained steadfast in growing its presence & services within the region. In 2010, RSP integrated & expanded its operations in Dubai, by launching a dedicated Design Hub, to serve its fast-expanding portfolio of Clients within the MENA region.
