With over 16 years of experience, Mohamed Ali is the design director at RMJM.

He was involved in the development of over 35 projects, ranging from high to mid-rise residential buildings to hotels, mixed-use, retail, commercial, industrial, and office buildings.

Emaar, Meraas Holding, Sorouh, DSOA, TDIC, TECOM, Omniyat, RAK Properties, Sharjah Holding, PIF, Masar, Thakher, Misk, and Qiddiya are among RMJM’s existing clients.

Mohamed feels that they add a fresh new perspective to the countries’ growth, particularly to mixed- use commercial and residential complexes where densification creates an ‘urban hub.’

“I think architectural thinking is quite often about how to manage the complexity of different stakeholders, that’s why I consider architecture as a puzzle with an infinite number of pieces; every piece counts and makes a difference.

My passion is to find the missing components, pull them together and execute into a fantastic workflow,” feels Ali.

Design, in Ali’s opinion, is a recurring process of sculpting visionary ideas into realistically buildable structures.

Technology has returned the glory of history’s great architects and enabled them to construct the most complex projects.

His role is to build virtual mockups and do electronic snagging prior to construction.

Ali is one of the industry’s leading innovators, with several of his projects focussing on bridging the gap between design and technology.

In addition to architectural design, Ali is the founder of RMJM PIM, a studio that combines the latest technologies and international design standards with a collaborative mentality to produce seamless and efficient delivery services.

Its goal is to reshape the real estate sector by offering clients full control over time, cost, and quality by incorporating design and construction intelligence into the project lifecycle.

“Transparency is my leadership model: the ability to listen and act while remaining responsible for the final decision.

” It’s a difficult task that requires a lot of strength in order to maintain a great balance between capabilities and requirements. “It’s yet to be accomplished simply by being,” adds Ali.

RMJM’s versatility is demonstrated by its ability to complete projects of various sizes.

As a result, the company’s initiatives attain a degree of long-term viability that does not detract from the company’s long-term portfolio of work.

Ali’s job as a design director is to use a holistic approach to design and consider the local environment to create places that seems inclusive, lively, and meaningful.

He provides consistent leadership for activities such as project planning and direction, programming, design, technical application coordination, graphic portrayal, client relations, winning work, and publish-grade documents.
