Our history began in July 2007 when we moved into our first office in Dubai. Three of the five pioneering staff who made that initial move are still with us today, and we still have ten of the team who joined us in our first year!
Together with our clients, we didn’t just weather the storm of the 2008 global financial downturn – we grew through it with projects in Abu Dhabi, India, as well as in Dubai. We continued to grow through the following financial years with projects further afield in Azerbaijan. We became very adept at shaping to suit circumstances by working in new locations and new sectors. As we continued to recruit, we sustained to pick up new and competitive skillsets. Our sector focus has evolved with these skillsets from hotels to residential, to retail, to aviation, to technology and data centres.
From our humble beginnings, we have matured as a business and have created greater focus on more specific specialist sectors whilst maintaining our flexible approach into others where we maintain that sector experience. We have gained extensive success along the route, continuously winning industry recognition awards while working in a wide variety of sectors.
Our skills are embedded in our culture and how we communicate across the globe – our one global team approach is and will always be our biggest asset. Today, as our team continues to grow, we commit to bringing in more innovative and simple sustainable solutions to our clients than ever.

What our clients are saying
We highly value the support from Black & White as our Master Design Consultant. We engaged with Black & White early in the process for Master Planning and based on their successful performance, we have progressed with them into the Design phase. Black & White had delivered an industry-leading design on time and budget for a very challenging project that will position our business for success moving forward. Thank you and we look forward to more success with Black & White moving forward.
