Having been with Australian-headquartered Multiplex since 2003, Marcus Truscott is the managing director for the company’s Middle East operation.
The contractor’s recent regional projects include the Etihad Eco-Residence, developed by Masdar. The Abu Dhabi-based complex, Multiplex says, is among the most resource-efficient buildings in the region, thanks to its use of solar thermal water heaters, its low window-to-wall ratio, and the adoption of solar-reflective index coatings that can deliver an estimated 63% reduction in total energy consumption.
Late last year, Multiplex won an award to build the Address Residences Jumeirah Resort and Spa in Dubai. The contractor is also part of the joint venture building Dubai’s ICD Brookfield Place.
