In working with our clients, our technical team takes a consulting-led approach which involves our intimate participation from the very early stages of project design, right through to project completion.

We believe this allows our clients to achieve real value for money on their project delivery.

Our directors, Mr Lionel de Silva and Mr Dushy Thiru, have worked extensively in Africa, Asia and the Pacific throughout their engineering and commercial careers and have a strong understanding of the needs and challenges within local developing communities.

Many of the road projects involving our bridging solutions in the Pacific region were funded by the Asian Development Bank and other international funding agencies.

We understand the criticality of expert bridge design in the early stages of a project and its role in the development of good road infrastructure within a community. Our knowledge, skills and extensive experience enable us to provide high standards of professional service in any environment.
