The Alpin Experience

Thought leadership for the built environment

How we began and where we are today

Since our initial creation under the Griffin Group in 2007, the Alpin family has grown to encompass some of the world’s leading voices and forward thinkers on everything to do with sustainable development, building commissioning and BIM. Each of these elements within our specialist services work in tandem. Our highly tuned BIM design process helps aid transparency throughout the commissioning process, which in turn helps us deliver more cost effective, sustainable buildings.

The beauty of how we work lies in our flexibility, giving us the ability to match the very best consultants to your project’s needs, no matter the size or diversity. We draw from a trusted pool of highly experienced, locally based project managers as well as world-class in-house consultants to create a winning team. This lets us and our clients focus on what’s really important – the delivery of outstanding projects that not only support our quest for a more sustainable future, but are also fully commercially viable. It’s a recipe that works, and the proof lies in our long-standing relationships with clients and partners who choose Alpin time and time again.

Our global headquarters is ideally located in the world’s first sustainable city, Masdar, in Abu Dhabi, UAE. We also work with a network of consultants spanning from San Francisco and London to Jeddah and Sydney and have branch offices in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, as well as strategic partners in Munich, Germany.

Giving back to the world we live in

Our work goes beyond simply building outstanding projects. We are passionate about spreading our knowledge on sustainability, commissioning and BIM and educating the thought leaders of the future. By using education as a tool to affect positive change, we strive to arm generations to come with the skills to continue this vital work.

From university training projects to coaching and support, our consultants have educated more than 3000 professionals in every aspect of green buildings, sustainability, commissioning and BIM. On the sustainable front, Alpin is a member of the US Green Building Council and we have also worked with Habitat for Humanity to explore the financial benefits of using green building technology in their projects.

Our Approach

At Alpin, we pride ourselves in taking the time to fully understand your vision. We are with you right from the beginning – even before the design of your project has taken shape. We will weigh up the risks, provide creative input, innovation and commercial solutions, to ensure that your project meets and indeed, surpasses, the aspirations of all those involved.

It is our promise to offer you the very highest calibre of support, regardless of the size or scope of your project. Our highly experienced team has worked in nearly every region in the world, representing five continents and conversing in 11 languages.

Over the years, we have had the privilege of working with development teams from across the US, Europe and the Middle East in various aspects of consultancy and training. We are passionate about seeing your sustainable project succeed and are here to guide you through every stage of the process, from pre-design right through to construction and operations.

Creativity. Innovation. Passion.

Our passion and vision for driving the development industry forward and affecting positive change is the reason we do what we do. We’ve made it our business to deliver the very best sustainable, built environment solutions – no matter the size or scale of the project. We always strive to find your best fit and draw from our highly talented pool of global thought leaders to ensure your project’s success. By employing cutting edge 3D BIM technology throughout the entire process, we provide everyone involved with a better vision of exactly how the project will take shape.

BIM also advances our goal of sustainability by enabling us to preempt any challenges and more accurately pinpoint construction requirements, therefore helping to reduce waste and promote a more cost-effective, sustainable project all round. This in turn has a positive impact on the whole commissioning process, helping us improve our efficiency and ultimately, streamline the delivery of your project.

We strive to make sustainable living more accessible by delivering innovative commissioning, sustainability and BIM solutions across the entire spectrum.

At Alpin we strive to give all our clients a positive experience right from the very start. We embrace the ‘can do’ spirit, and our talented, professional team will always encourage creativity to ensure we source the very best solutions for your project.

Flexibility is really important to us. Whether that means scaling our resources to match your project’s needs, or investing in new cutting edge technology to deliver a more creative solution, you can rest assured we’ll rise to any challenge. Working with a mix of fresh talent and top-tier industry professionals also allows us to bring a wide range of diverse skills to the table.

We know that entrusting the financial resources behind a project to someone else is no small matter. At Alpin, you can rest assured that we have your long-term financial health in mind. That’s why we only focus on projects that we can really add value and success to.

At Alpin, we love to inspire people with innovative ideas. We thrive by thinking outside the box and finding creative solutions to projects across a variety of locations and sensitive cultures.

That’s why we draw on the support of world class professionals – scaling our resources to meet your project’s needs. We strive to ensure our work has an immediate impact, not only on the environment that surrounds it, but also on the people. We love to give back, with at least 1% of our profits also going towards charitable causes.
