Our first business was reconstruction sub-contracting in immediate post-war Iraq, in 2003. We were subsequently selected to be a prime contractor to the US Government Departments of Defense and State. Success came quickly, as measured by contract extensions, repeat business and new clients, all by word of mouth. From the outset our criteria were to provide an overriding attention to detail and quality, and a proactive and sustainable approach to getting results for our paymasters and all other stakeholders. These criteria continue to be relevant in our selection process, whether for staff or contractors.
Reconstruction contracting led to technical services support and project management for foreign Governments, supra-nationals, strategic investors and the NGO/NFP sector. We contracted to USAID, UNAMI, the Governments of Japan, Australia, Denmark and Iraq, NGOs, and the commercial sector.
We developed expertise in natural resources dominated economies, specifically those with massive geo-political, logistics and financial challenges.
We count amongst our clients Shell, BP, Exxon, Chevron, Schlumberger, Baker Hughes, Halliburton and many other International Oil Companies, Drilling Contractors and Service Companies, providing multiple in country support services including project logistics, manpower services, facilities management, civil engineering, construction, agency, procurement and soft services.
We operate as consultant, contractor, principal, agent or joint venture partner.
More recently we have gained renewable energy experience for which we supply in country project management and oversight services.
