Cundall launches MENA Acoustics department with new appointment Share this article

Cundall has appointed Jon Lee to lead their acoustics discipline in MENA.

Jon has established himself as one of the Gulf’s leading acoustics consultants working on a wide range of projects in the region and across the globe. He is a corporate member of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and during his time in the UK held a seat the on the Institute’s Publications Committee and was presented with the Distinguished Service Award for his services to the Institute. He also helps run the Middle East Acoustic Society, promoting professional standards in all matters of acoustic practice in the region.

Jon Lee commented, “It is a great time to join Cundall and to be working alongside both familiar and new faces. As an innovative global team, Cundall’s acoustics discipline is already a leader in the field, pushing the boundaries with innovations like the Virtual Acoustic Reality® (VAR). The team is continuing a trend of strong global growth and I’m very excited with what the future will bring.”

Andrew Parkin, Global head of Acoustics said, “We are delighted to have Jon as part of our team. A number of us have known him for many years so he has fitted in well and is already contributing greatly to the work we are involved in around the world. Strategically having Jon in MENA is really important too as it helps bridge the gap between our existing teams in the UK and Australia.’

Cundall established its Acoustics Consultancy division in 2010 and now delivers projects in over 20 countries across four continents. The company has received a number of industry awards for their innovative use of the Oculus Rift to create Cundall VAR, enabling design teams to hear and see what it is like to be inside a building before it is built. The appointment of Jon has further strengthened Cundall’s multidisciplinary offering in the MENA region.

Richard Stratton, Managing Director of MENA commented, “The last three years have seen significant change in Cundall’s MENA business. Our team has grown from 30 to just over 100 staff offering design and consultancy services in building services (MEP), structural and civil engineering as well as specialist design and consultancy in sustainability, lighting, IT and audio visual serving most sectors. We have seen significant growth in our infrastructure business and in particular serving the rail sector in Doha. To compliment our engineering and specialist consultancy services for our clients, we are very pleased to now offer acoustics and welcome Jon to further strengthen our dynamic team in MENA."
