The first of its kind to be published in the region, the guide aims to establish best practices in the specification of modern office buildings and ultimately improve the quality of office accommodation in the Middle East.

Developed in collaboration with engineers, architects, designers, agents and developers working in the Middle East, Meco says the guide addresses the current drivers for change in the industry.

''We are thrilled to be launching the first Meco Best Practice Guide, which we hope will benefit the entire industry and promote the advancement of the working environment," said Christopher Seymour, co-Chairman of Meco and Head of Property at EC Harris. "The guide is the result of extensive research and collaboration between Meco members and industry professionals.

"I would like to thank each person who was involved in the project for their commitment and for the thoughts brought into the guide."

The office market in the Middle East is seeing interest from a more sophisticated tenant and hence the quality of the office accommodation is becoming a key decision point. Moreover, many of the Middle East markets face unique conditions, which represent a challenge to those involved in the creation and management of the office stock in the region.

Founded in 2009, Meco is committed to promoting all aspects of the office cycle in the Middle East, from design to occupation.

As part of its focus on promoting an open dialogue among industry players, Meco will be participating at workspace Index Design Talks with a dedicated day on May 21. Index Design Talks is a free-to-attend seminar programme aimed at the region's architecture and design community. It will take place at Index, a commercial interiors exhibition that will run from May 19-22 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
