About Alpin

Thought leadership for the built environment

How we began and where we are today

For the past decade, Alpin has grown to encompass some of the world’s leading voices and thought leaders in the field of sustainable development and climate change, so much so that what started off as a niche advisory service has grown into a holistic service offering that incorporates all of the elements and aspects that would play a role in creating a sustainable development or policy. 

The essence of our 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 sector. We draw from a trusted pool of highly experienced, regionally 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.

In 2020, Alpin joined Setec, an independent French engineering group based in Paris, amongst the world leaders in multidisciplinary engineering. Joining resources and taking on the most complex and daring projects possible all over the world, both entities contribute to building a more sustainable, secure, better connected, and more agreeable world to live in.

Alpin’s global headquarters is ideally located in the world’s first sustainable city, Masdar, in Abu Dhabi, UAE, along with branches in Dubai and Kuwait. Alpin also boasts a large presence in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, with multiple offices in the country, including Riyadh and Dammam. We also work with a network of consultants spanning from Paris and London.

Giving back to the world we live in

Alpin supports Thought Leadership

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

Firmly focused on the future and fully aware of the role that engineering must play in the fight against climate change and the ecological and social transition, the employees of the SETEC Group have collectively chosen their philosophy: to be “Engineers & Citizens.” As citizens, they express their sensitivity to these issues and want to be active in transforming our ecosystem. As engineers, they provide practical solutions, and as an engineering company, they aim to be the promoters of sustainable projects.

Creativity. Innovation. Passion.
