RMG Engineers opened a branch in Iraq in 2011 starting with limited activities, which can be summarized as follows:

  • Field Construction Observation and Material Testing.
  • Geotechnical Subsurface Investigations.
  • Structural Design Review.
  • Foundation Designs.

The primary project for RMG Engineers was New Erbil Food Distribution Center, which is a large commercial investment project, invested and contracted by Redyar Construction Contracting Ltd, for information on this project visit: www.erbilfdc.com

The project consists of three phases, phase one consist of five main buildings of approximately10, 000 meter squares, Mini cold storage building with 40 Mini cold storages, Medium cold storage building contains 16 medium size cold storage and a Large cold storage building of 3500 meter square  in addition to the infra structure (Water, Sewer, Storm and Electrical & communication Networks) Phase two will consist of a mega cold storage building of 12,000 meter square, a whole sale dry food building of about 14,000 meter square, a three level Sam’s Club/Costco style club market and a 20 story business tower. The third phase of the project consists of many warehouses for food sorting, food packing machinery and equipment, recycling area, a bank building, a police and fire station buildings, weighing stations, a small motel, mechanical workshop area and a gas station.

The project faced stoppage and financial difficulties after disputes started between Iraq Central Government and Kurdistan Region Government, Oil price drop and the war with ISIS. Construction is re-scheduled to resume mid June 2016.

Site Over Lot Grading:

The over lot grading contractors participated were:

  • Alfaw Iraq Government Company
  • Ahmed Fadhl Earth Movers LTD
  • Kawani Construction

The subdivision area is little over 500,000 meter square, and the total amount of the earth moved of cut and fill up-to-date is estimated around 1,250,000 meter cubes. RMG Engineers performed all compaction tests, proctor tests, limits and other necessary tests.

Sub-Base Material:

Two layers of 20cm thick, per specification compacted sub-base material was placed underneath each foundation of buildings and roads of phase one. RMG engineers performed Proctors, CBR, gradation, soil classification and limits in addition to other necessary tests. All tests performed according to the project specifications, ASTM, AASHTO and BS standards.

Concrete Work,

The approximate amount of concrete work for phase one so far is around 75000 cubic meters. This included foundation concrete, slab on grade concrete and parking lot concrete.

RMG Engineers performed on site and laboratory testing according to the applicable standard specifications.

Steel Structure,

The steel structures were observed during construction by RMG Engineers. Torque tests performed on the Bolts and Nuts during construction.

Mr. Sayeed MuhamadConstruction DirectorDarin Group

We used RMG Engineers for our fast track1000 prefabricated two bedroom homes in Ainkawa. RMG Engineers performed their duty in professional manner. They work well under a short time frame and have provided excellent service. To my believe one cannot find a better private firm in Kurdistan to assist in quality control quality assurance in addition to the professional reports. They investigated most of the technical parts of the prefabricated houses such as the thicknesses of the steel members, sandwich panels in addition to the specification compliance of mechanical and electrical parts and their installation. Also RMG Engineers provided final approval of the project before we pay the supplier company.
