If you have a firm of your own no matter if it is one of the Dubai architecture companies or of any other type, there will be many things which you have to see in your consultant. You need to see that the consultant will be able to provide all the things your firm needed and he should be better than the consultants of other firms. When you need so many abilities in one person then you have to keep in mind that you also need to pay him a good amount. There are many companies of engineering consultancy in Abu Dhabi and you can hire a consultant from there too when you need one. You have to see the following in a consultant before hiring:
Your consultant should work along with your existing team of workers and you have to see that they should be able to work in a team like a team member and they should work with them in a good environment instead of being angry on your workers. There are many things through which you can see that how much able they are of working in a team. You can have a mock up with them and give a scenario to see how much able they are.
Another things is that you have to see how much communicative they are with you and with the workers they are working with. They need to communicate with you and provide you all the information and the problems going and make you aware of their decisions. When you are making the in-charge then you have to respect their decision because they will take them according to the situation but you should be aware of their every move.
You also need to see that how much persistent that are with their work and in their behavior. There should be no mood swings while working because they have to work in critical conditions and if they do not have control on their behavior then they will not be able to provide you better results. You can check that by giving them a critical situation and pressurizing them with different techniques to get to know what they will do in that certain condition. Practical interview is very important and necessary to be held in this field of work to hire consultant.
