Asite has been awarded a five-year contract with Aldar Properties to work across their future project development pipeline.

Ritesh Narain, EVP of MENA and India said:


“Asite is extremely excited to start our journey with Aldar Properties and their innovative project portfolio.

The demand for a cloud-based platform that enables open information sharing across the entire supply chain has been increasing in the UAE for some time now and we’re thrilled to be able to bring Asite into this dynamic market.

The UAE is no-doubt one of the most exciting regions in construction; their history of creating the world’s most impressive buildings remains at large, from Burj Khalifa – the tallest building on Earth – to bringing the first world expo, Expo 2020 Dubai, to the Middle East, Africa and South Asia.

Our partnership with Aldar Properties marks the beginning of Asite’s expansion into the UAE market, and this is an exciting step in cementing our presence and supporting continued growth in the region.”

“Innovation and digital transformation are central to Aldar’s business strategy. Partnering with leading digital engineering companies like Asite enables us to enhance operational efficiencies, increase knowledge sharing across our supply chains, and deliver a seamless customer journey.

PropTech is transforming the way real estate companies operate and we are witnessing more businesses in the UAE and the region reaping the benefits of investing in cloud-based platforms to deliver sustainable value to its stakeholders.”


Asite’s robust and secure CDE will provide a holistic view across Aldar’s vast and wide-ranging capital projects, including streamlined document management to store, track, manage, and access all project assets from one centralized repository.

Advanced task management and extensive project reporting, alongside collaborative BIM (cBIM) – incorporating standardized naming conventions and design coordination to mark-up project models – will also help Aldar to build better across their portfolio.
