Project story

Standard Chartered, the leading international banking group, has a brand promise - here for good - that guides the company to always be there for their clients and always do the right thing.

It is perhaps this commitment, which echoes Mace's own values, that has led to such a long and successful relationship.

Macro began working with Standard Chartered in 2009 when we were appointed to provide integrated facilities management services at the bank's offices in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. Since then our relationship with Standard Chartered has expanded to 42 countries across four continents.

And it is not just Macro that is supporting Standard Chartered's ambitions to drive investment and trade and create wealth across the world. As Macro's parent company, Mace is providing project management services across more than 40 countries, as well as cost consultancy expertise for their retail and commercial projects in those locations.
