Gulf Engineer's Consultants


2010 Construction Week POWER 100

25 September 2010

Their firm may be only two years old, but sisters Shatha and Nada Al Fahad make up in ambition what they may be lacking in experience. Most of GEC DAR’s current projects are conceptual, or competition entries, but as a Kuwait firm headed by two female engineers they are certainly a rarity in this part of the world. Nada Al Fahad believes that the Gulf region is lacking firms that are able to deliver quality designs to realistic budgets, and has pledged to put GEC DAR at the forefront of redressing that. Prominent projects on board include a social centre and building for Imams and Preachers in Kuwait, and the Amwaj Centre in Saudi Arabia.
