We began our journey in the Philippines working with public authorities and multinational financing institutions that funded development works in the country. Our first project was a preliminary economic study and master plan for the port of Mariveles for the Asiatic Integrated Corporation.
In the 1960s and 1970s, we worked as consultants for clients such as Asian Development Bank (ADB) and International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) - part of the World Bank Group. These projects primarily focused on feasibility studies, and technical assistance to critical transportation and urban infrastructure such as public roads and highways, water resources, and ports, at locations such as Iligan-Butuan, Laguna de Bay, Cotabato Port and the Island of Mindoro.
These long-term projects helped formed the basis of our deep knowledge of local culture, clients, engineering ecosystems, and key economic and infrastructural development activities in the Filipino market.
We believe that despite the prolonged global Covid-19 pandemic that created flux to the country, infrastructure development and construction is one of the most resilient and well positioned sectors to drive recovery due to increased investment, productivity and sustainability goals.
