Brief History

For over two decades, the Filipino Registered and Licensed Architects (RLA) and it's allied professionals in the UAE have been involved in nation building thru various sectors of the construction industry namely design, project and construction management, interior design, technical support, landscaping, product representation and others services showcasing their highest level of competency, reliability and dedication. However, over the same period of time, the absence of a duly chartered and accredited Filipino architecture organization to consolidate and unite these advantages has been a reality that proved to be elusive.

In the year 2010, The United Architects of the Philippines (UAP) in the UAE, Abu Dhabi and Dubai respectively, has been formally approved by the UAP-IAPOA (Integrated and Accredited Professional Organization of Architects) during its annual National Convention held last 24th of April of the same year in Manila, Philippines thus making these chapters the official representations of all Filipino RLAs in the Emirates . These chapters were officially chartered last July 23, 2010.

Now, we are proud to welcome you to our website - the official e-portal of the Filipino Registered and License Architects (RLAs) in Abu Dhabi. We hope that this will give you an overview of who and what the UAP Abu Dhabi chapter is all about.
