We have offices in Lahore, Islamabad and Karachi. We have successfully completed many very prestigious contracts in the country; the scope of our activities has witnessed rapid growth in our local expertise and experience.
Our work in Pakistan has been internationally recognised through projects such as the Ghazi Barotha Hydropower project which won the Energy Institute International Platinum Award and the Sukkur Barrage project which brought us the British Construction Industry Award.
We've worked on five hydropower projects in Pakistan, hugely increasing the country's electricity generation.
Since 2009 we have been providing technical assistance to the Provincial governments of Pakistan with the aim of strengthening systems for the planning and delivery of maternal, newborn and child health services throughout the country. We're also supporting the development of ‘roadmaps’ required to enhance Pakistan’s health sector’s capacity to implement effective and well managed programmes, to develop innovative and evidence-based effective policies related to reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health and nutrition, and to improve public financial management.
We're providing support to Punjab government to improve access, equity, quality and relevance of education. We have supported the rollout of an innovative non-salary financing reform in all government schools. In the first year alone, this will improve the learning conditions of 15,000 schools and the life chances of 2.8 million students.
Water and environment
In the arid Sindh province our local knowledge, stakeholder engagement and technical engineering skills are being used to restore effective irrigation to thousands of farmers. The five year, US$150 million programme, funded by the World and Asian Development Banks, is key to the long-term sustainability of agriculture.
In Rawalpindi, most people received water for only a few hours each day and the sewerage system was inadequate. We improved the water and sewerage services through rehabilitation of the existing works and construction of new water supply and sewerage facilities. We enabled the provision of a safe and reliable water supply and improved the urban situation for the population of Rawalpindi City.
