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
Manateq Headquarters in Ras Bufontas
The building maintains the highest technical, functional, operational, and aesthetic standards, with state-of-the-art facilities and services. This comes in line with Manateq’s requirements of efficient, sustainable, and ongoing operation and maintenance.
Over a land area of 23,000 m² and with a built-up area of 35,000 m², the building consists of four wings enclosing an internal yard. The four wings are interconnected by pedestrian bridges and rise above a lower ground floor that includes 270 parking slots, technical spaces, and other building amenities.
Each building wing consists of the following components:
- ground floor: lobbies, reception area, offices, gym, prayer rooms, toilets, kitchen, pantries, and utilities
- four upper floors: waiting area, offices, meeting rooms, and audiovisual room. The upper floors of Wing 1 and Wing 4 are designed on a shell-and-core basis.
- roof: open gardens and utilities
The external area features piazzas, gardens, ramps, surface car parks, and a drop-off. A technical yard is located in an adjacent parcel owned by Manateq. The yard provides electric power and chilled water to the building to keep it fully operational until QEZ-1 infrastructure networks are in service.see projects related
