At A&P we rely on the expertise and commitment of our long-serving employees to consistently offer the best possible and uniform product to our Clients. It is indicative that more than 60% of new work is with repeat clients, who trust our teams to dependably deliver their projects on time and to the highest quality standards.
Together with its parent company J&P (Joannou and Paraskevaides), A&P has played a significant part in the development of the area of our operation in the last 40+ years, with subsidiary companies across practically all Arabian Gulf countries, and having undertaken some of the most important, cornerstone projects in the region and farther. Our involvement on some of the most significant and prestigious projects is a testament to the group’s strengths and fundamental principles of dependability, quality and commitment. We are widely regarded as one of the foremost MEP contractors in the area, and our relentless drive for excellence, integral to the principles of our founders, has been the key factor in building and safeguarding our reputation.
The Group employs a large number of highly qualified Engineers and Engineering Personnel, most of which have worked in the MENA region and Europe for many years and are very familiar with the conditions and design parameters specific to the area. A&P currently employs more than 6,000 employees of different nationalities throughout its operations.
A&P’s teams are fully aware of the Clients’ requirements, and we pay particular attention to our Project Teams being fully briefed and accountable for safety, health and environmental considerations, aware of the design constraints particular to the Project, and the applicable industry codes, standards, and practices. With skilled manpower and the significant and valuable experience we have amassed over the years, we have been entrusted to carry out some of the most challenging and iconic projects in the area.
The Engineering and Technical Departments use the latest technology in software and hardware in preparing designs and calculations for both the Mechanical and Electrical disciplines. The Design Office personnel are fully conversant with the latest CAD and BIM software as well as most engineering and calculation software available.
Contributing to the Group’s growth path and in line with our strategy to expand the business further and lay the ground work to achieving our Mission, are the three recent major project wins in Qatar and KSA, secured since February 2015, totalling in value approximately USD 1 Billion.
We are responding decisively to the continuously developing needs of Clients and the ever-ambitious projects undertaken in our areas of operation, by implementing the measures necessary to maintain our edge through innovative methods, self-assessment, and a conscientious and constant effort towards improvement.
A&P is undergoing a transformation as necessitated by the rapid expansion of its operations and assumption of work in new areas. Systems and procedures have recently been enhanced to better address needs, and the corporate setup has been augmented to facilitate the support of all areas.
The Group is already reaping the benefits of these measures, which will be further enhanced and expanded with the imminent shift to the new Group Headquarters at Dubai South (Dubai World Central) Offices.
A&P is on a growth path having implemented the necessary procedures to ensure that all conditions and support mechanisms are in place so that this may materialise. Recent major project wins fall in line with the management’s strategy and plans, and confirm the Group’s position as one of the foremost MEP contractors in the MENA region.
