The Association of International Consultants and Contractors came into being in 1988, following several years of studies and intimate cooperation among four of Iran’s major engineering associations representing 1252 consulting and engineering firms. It brought to a harvest the Iranian engineering community’s longstanding desire to establish an umbrella organization charged with the task of mobilizing the country’s immense engineering potentialities to coordinate and promote exports of technical and engineering services. Currently 37 leading companies representing a wide cross section of the Iranian engineering industry make up the backbone of the association. However, given the fact that there are over 5000 registered engineering firms in Iran, enhanced cooperation among these firms figures prominently in the association’s list of priorities.

The Association’s principal objectives can be summarized as follows:

  • To coordinate and harmonize the activities of commercial and industrial sectors with technical and engineering services.
  • To identify and publicize technical and engineering export potentials with a view to bring about an overall expansion in the country’s non-oil exports.
  • To help identify potential markets for exports of technical and engineering services.
  • To help organize overseas export promotion missions.
  • To provide consultancy services regarding international contracts, filling out questionnaires, preparing international tender documents, as well as helping engineering firms prequalify for financial facilities granted by the World Bank, Islamic Development Bank and other credit sources.

Introduction

The origins of the art of designing and building in Iran date back six thousand years. What has remained of the great wealth of architectural masterpieces created by our forefathers demonstrates how deeply this art is rooted in our rich ancient culture.

Construction industry in its contemporary form, however, made its appearance in our country about 70 years ago. Prior to the 1960s, virtually all major development projects in Iran were handled by international contracting firms mostly on a full turn-key basis, while Iranian engineers played only minor roles. After the revolution and particularly during the past decade, Iranian engineers have taken great strides in transforming Iran’s rather fledgling construction industry into one employing advanced technology and modern managerial methods.

Thanks to a highly coordinated national reconstruction program launched in 1990s, Iranian firms, especially those in the private sector, have greatly expanded their technical know-how and capabilities, becoming efficient designers and builders. The diversity of projects executed by Iranian engineering firms over the last decade or so is an enucing testimony to our country’s considerable technical resources and capabilities. The fruits of these capabilities are embodied in the huge dams, petrochemical complexes, onshore and offshore gas and oil installations, port facilities, power plants, state-of-the-art telecommunications networks, steel mills, construction material and equipment manufacturing plants, world-class airports, bridges, roads, highways, railways, extensive irrigation and drainage networks, urban sewerage systems, and water treatment facilities. What follows is a brief sectoral overview of Iran’s diverse capabilities and resources.
