The office of RAFIK EL KHOURY & PARTNERS was established late in 1967 when the volume of Consultancy Work carried out by the founder to clients and design offices in Lebanon and the Middle East could no longer be done without the participation of a team of specialized engineers working together under one roof and enjoying the facilities of a modern office with a computer service and a very well documented technical reference library.

From the outset, as is evident from the list of references, the firm has, on the one hand been involved in the structural designs of delicate architectural projects where only the full interchange of ideas between architect and engineer could lead to the success of the venture and, on the other, its involvement in important engineering and structural designs per se has been considerable.

Structural design, road and bridge design, infrastructure design, the design of industrial installations and maritime works, project supervision and control including cost control are some of the firms major fields of activity, enhanced by the extensive international experience of the founder and engineering staff. The firm has also been extensively involved in structural steel design and prefabrication.

The firm has been closely involved in major projects both in Lebanon and in the Middle East, giving it a thorough knowledge of the region sustained by wide-ranging contacts throughout the Arab World.

The office maintains full time specialist engineers in the main fields of activities undertaken.

To satisfy the demands of its clients, the services of the office have been extended to include Architectural, Mechanical and Electrical works.

The firm has experience in contracts funded by major funding agencies such as World Bank, European Union, European Investment Bank, Overseas Economic Cooperation Fund, Saudi Fund for Development and others.
