Long-term Relationship with MBC Group


MBC Group (Middle East Broadcasting Center) is the largest and leading private media company in the Middle East & North Africa region. In 2002, nearly a decade after the London launch of MBC1, the 1st private free-to-air Arab satellite TV channel, MBC Group moved its headquarters to Dubai Media City, United Arab Emirates, where it remains with its operations spanning throughout the region.

Sharing MBC’s culture of excellence, Black & White Engineering are proud to have formed a long-standing relationship dating back to 2010, working on a variety of projects from due diligence, to office and production/film studio design.

During this last year we have been responsible for the concept design of a 13,000m2 film production studio and the detailed design for 6,500m2 retrofit of an existing studio/office building hosting MBC’s Al Arabiya News Channel along with a confidential global news provider.

Both these projects were delivered in collaboration with MBC’s in-house technical design team and our sub-consultant partner network which further establishes our growing portfolio in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

“We continue to expand our portfolio of projects within KSA, these are among 11 projects we have been involved in within the last 12 months alone. We pride ourselves on repeat business from our clients and in this case, we are delighted to support MBC in new developments within the GCC. Our excellent relationship is testament to the team who have been involved since our first project 10 years ago and we look forward to growing our partnership for years to come.’’ says Jamie Darragh, Technical Director, Middle East region.
