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
IKEA Store at Cairo Festival City
IKEA, the world’s largest furniture retailer, is a Swedish company that designs and sells ready-to-assemble furniture, appliances, and home accessories. In 2013, Al-Futtaim Group opened the first IKEA store in Egypt at Cairo Festival City (CFC). Wrapped in IKEA’s distinctive blue and yellow brand colors, the store stands as an iconic landmark within the commercial complex.
As the lead consultant of CFC, ECG studied a range of design parameters and developed a group of solutions to blend IKEA’s standard layout with the mall. These aspects included the approach, visibility, utilities, structural loads, structural grid, circulation, and connectivity.
The store’s main building comprises two floors with a built-up area of 30,000 m2. The area is divided into a series of interconnected departments leading to one another, with an attached double-height hall containing a self-serve furniture area. There is also a three-floor parking structure with a built-up area of around 60,000 m², which brings the total built-up area to approximately 90,000 m2.see projects related
