Geoharbour Middle East Construction is looking towards reinforcing and expanding its presence across the Middle East with the move to leverage its diverse range of ground engineering services across construction and development companies in the region.
The company has expressed its eagerness in providing these companies, particularly across civil main contractor groups, with services that are integrated with the latest geo-engineering technologies on an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) basis, including ground improvement, bored & driven piling works and all types of shoring works.
According to the company’s senior executives, Geoharbour’s strategic expansion initiative is already underway as it has already marked its presence with the opening of a regional office in Dubai and branch offices in Abu Dhabi, Saudi Arabia, Oman and Kuwait.
“In spite of international market fluctuations, we are still witnessing a large influx of projects in the region's construction segment. In line with this, we are also seeing an increased demand for geotechnical services,” said Wiliam Chen, executive director, Geoharbour Middle East Construction.
“Looking to play a key role in addressing this demand, Geoharbour has embarked on a strategic expansion move that aims to benchmark our presence in the region. In fact, we are now working closely with leading contractors on important projects in the region, offering our key range of world class, fully efficient and totally reliable geotechnical services, which makes use of the latest technologies thereby resulting in a win-win situation among parties.”
To date, the Geoharbour Group has over 50 patents to its name, including the High Vacuum Densification Method (HVDM), which enables soil consolidation by using a pressure gradient acted within the ground.
The company has successfully completed over 200 mega projects and concluded soil improvement across more than 15,000 hectares that was used in the preparation for infrastructure works of projects like the Project in Palm Deira Dubai, Ground Treatment Works for oil refinery of Saudi Aramco in KSA, Singapore Changi Airport, Malaysia Expressway, and other key undertakings like petrochemical works, power plants, logistic facilities and industrial plants to name a few.
For its Middle East operations, the company is looking to leverage its services like soil improvement, piling and foundation engineering, geotechnical design and consulting and package solutions.
