With 29 years of experience in the design, procurement, construction, and delivery of major projects across the building, electro-mechanical, infrastructure, and marine sectors, Kardous was appointed to his role earlier this year.
In his current job, Kardous succeeds Mohammed Al Rais, who resigned from his position in April. Kardous joined Hill in 1997 as part of the team managing the Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Mosque project in Abu Dhabi.
Prior to that, he was the real-estate development manager at the firm rebuilding Beirut City Centre. Kardous started his career in 1982 with a regional architectural practice.
