Corporate Profile

As presently structured and managed, the Partnership is a full service study and design firm able to provide feasibility studies, engineering designs and contract document preparation for a wide range of engineering projects. In addition to the capabilities of its permanent full-time core staff (the Partnership does not depend or use part-time staff) it has access to on-call specialists, world wide, in various industries and fields of specialization through professional association with international consulting firms.

On its various assignments, the Partnership works on a project team basis. A design manager, usually a core member of its staff is appointed to assemble a team from the staff to perform the design effort. The design manager is responsible to one of the TAEP directors who will monitor progress and hold regular review meetings to ensure the quality and standard of the work being performed.

The Partnership's staff has a complementary range of experience on various types of projects from feasibility study, inception, where a building program or a report is prepared on a project's technical and design aspects, to final design encompassing detailed construction drawings, specifications, bills of quantities and associated tender documents.

Procedures have also been established for the management of the design operation, preparation of contract documents, coordination with Clients, issue of contract documents and follow-up with response to contractors' questions.

The Partnership’s offices in Kuwait City occupy about 600 M2 on three floors. The offices are fully networked with 38 CAD stations employing the latest in hardware and software. These facilities are under constant review and are updated and extended as necessary. The network is maintained by a CAD Manager on a full time basis who also undertakes training of the staff on regular intervals. Printing and plotting services are available in-house and hence TAEP does not have to depend on commercial establishments for their day-to-day printing and plotting requirements. Needless to say even tender packages are reproduced at the Partnership’s offices.
