What makes us the premier design firm in the MENA region and Sub-Saharan Africa?
The answer comes in one all-encompassing word: Versatility.
Versatility is what allows us to meet the requirements of diverse projects and respond to the needs of different individuals. Versatility is what allows us to innovate and adapt wherever we are in the world. Versatility is also how we always manage to reconcile cost-effectiveness with great quality.
Our extensive range of engineering and design services plays a great role in enhancing this versatility as well:
ECG’s engineering services cover MEP, infrastructure, transportation and process engineering, in conjunction with a range of supplementary engineering services. These include civil and environmental engineering, together with fire protection, lighting, communications, security, and building management systems.
Our design services, on the other hand, cover Front-End Engineering & Design (FEED), Conceptual Design, Preliminary Design, Basis of Design Reports (BODRs), Schematic Design, Design Development, Detailed Design, Design Optimization, Construction Documents, Value Engineering and Computer Simulations.see projects related
We will admit we are perfectionists. When it comes to architectural design, we want to be innovative, functional, beautiful, environmentally friendly, and above all we want to leave a legacy for the generations to come. We also want to bring all that to every possible structure. Whether it be a bridge or a highway, an exterior or an interior, we want it to shine.
Although this perfectionism keeps us up all night, it also pays off. We are very proud of our contributions to some of the most prestigious projects in the region: From landmark high-rises and mega residential compounds, to business parks and LEED compliant buildings, and from acoustics and vertical transportation to conveyor systems and much more.see projects related
Wastewater & Sewage Treatment Plant at Medical Union Pharmaceuticals Factory
The project aimed at conducting an environmental impact assessment of the effluents resulting from the manufacturing of antibiotics and other pharmaceuticals. It also aimed at providing suitable technical solutions for the treatment of industrial wastewater and sewage. In this context, a treatment plant was designed for the treatment of liquid waste and the safe disposal of sludge. Work also covered the modification of the production process in antibiotic ointment tanks to reduce the loss of antibiotics and reduce the pollutants inhibiting bacterial activity.
For further environmental protection, the following measures were taken:
- Reducing discharge from antibiotic ointment tanks to decrease the load on the treatment plant and to maintain the bacterial activity necessary for biological treatment within the plant.
- Mixing sewage with industrial wastewater to augment the fertilizers (nitrogen and phosphorus) required for bacterial reproduction.
- Utilizing the treated effluent (instead of drinking water) for the irrigation of green areas; in this context, a bulk of about 450 m3 of drinking water was saved on a daily basis.
- Eliminating foul odors and minimizing soil and groundwater contamination.
