Company Profile

We have been dedicated to professionalism since 1974 through our wide selection of specialized engineering services that are practical, innovative and economical.

As one of the top leading companies in the Middle East we are a union of four companies each specialized in a specific field.

Being the oldest branch, Soil Mechanics has more than 35 years of experience in soil investigations, foundation studies and slope stability. Furthermore, “Reinforced earth” has been specialized since 1978 in Retaining Earth Walls and Retaining Earth Abutments for bridges under seismic loads. This technology has an innovative and important difference with the regular concrete walls and facings. It presents much more practical, efficient, esthetical and economical solutions.

In order to meet the ever growing regional needs, “Reinforced Earth offshore” was created and offers the same services overseas as an extension of “reinforced earth” .

“Sols renforcés” has been offering since 1992 shoring work solutions ranging from excavation to nailing, anchoring, piling, and shotcreting through a highly qualified team of experts and up to date shoring softwares, drilling rigs and equipments.
