Gulf Development International and RWS Strategies announce collaboration agreement on modular construction program


March 8, 2018

(London, United Kingdom, 12/1/2017) Gulf Development International (GDI) and RWS Strategies are pleased to announce an agreement to promote and sustain a market for a modular building system in France. The collaborated effort will focus on developing a plan for introduction to French international hotel brands, affordable housing schemes in general, and housing for activities related to the Paris Olympics in 2024. 

GDI is an official representative partner of the world’s largest provider of modular buildings. Through this arrangement, GDI is allowed to introduce modular products to potential customers and intermediaries.

“The agreement with RWS allows us to pursue opportunities and provide solutions for a global event. The Paris Olympic Games will bring together people from all over the world. With that comes the demand for housing and other infrastructure, and the modular building system is an effective way to meet those needs as it reduces design and building timeframes while improving quality,” said Mike Chihoski, President and CEO of Global Development for GDI. 

“GDI brings a set of capabilities and experiences that are unique in the marketplace. Their end-to-end methodology, financial network and modular building relationships will help develop housing and hospitality, among other uses, to the marketplace faster,” said Ray Spano, Director of RWS Strategies.  

The initial agreement is for a two-year term.
