Quwat Construction Company, a company registered to do business in Afghanistan, is looking for a U.S. construction firm to joint venture with in Afghanistan to bid on large projects with the U.S. government (USAID, Army Corps, etc) and donors investing in infrastructure.
The principals of Quwat include:
- An Afghan-American engineer with 28 years of experience in design and management of large infrastructure projects in the U.S. and Afghanistan. He has recently managed a total portfolio of $400 million in construction projects across Afghanistan.
- An Afghan-American entrepreneur who has run a consulting firm in Afghanistan for three years. Her firm was involved in the management and operations for the roll out of a large telecommunications project in 2006 across all 34 provinces, and provided services to the government of Afghanistan and various projects for USAID and Asian Development Bank.
The Quwat team has unmatched contacts on ground, and consists of engineers and managers with experience running large projects in country.
Target projects are in $25 million-$200 million range.
The ideal partner for Quwat would be a U.S. based firm with experience working in Iraq. Core strengths should include roads, camps and barracks. Experience in water infrastructure and resources preferred. We have been approached by some firms but are looking for an ideal partner that will allow us to take maximum advantage of the large projects coming on line.
