All through 35 years in the construction industry, I learned that many institutions, owners and contractors in Kuwait have been spending valuable time attending to daily contractual issues, losing perspective of critical goals, and often faced with litigation.
I came to realize that in addition to traditional project management and technical support services, there is a need for focused CORE services to streamline construction by meeting all milestones, and insure cost effectiveness, while avoiding situations leading to claims .
CORE CONSULT project management is built on responding to this need and is committed to recruit experienced professionals, with integrity and exceptional skills in their respective disciplines.
CORE CONSULT project management offers a diversity of consulting services ranging from development planning to project and construction management, as well as claims analysis to litigation support.

Public Private Partnership (PPP) projects are typically large, complex, risky and capital intensive projects with very large budgets (in the hundreds of millions or even a few Billion US Dollars). They are implemented in a variety of formats: Build-Own-Transfer (BOT) or Build-Own-Operate-Transfer (BOOT) or Build-Own-Operate (BOO).
Due to the complexity and huge capital budgets of such Mega-projects, and of budgetary & financial constraints facing Governments and public authorities, such public authorities are increasingly adopting the PPP framework to engage the private sector (particularly for the provision of financing and technical efficiencies), instead of the traditional Engineering-Procurement -Construction (EPC) or Design-Build-Operate (DBO) formats.
Invariably such projects involve a Government Agency/End User who offers a “Long Term Concession” (at least 25 years) to a “Developer Consortium” to Design, Build, Operate and/or Maintain a Facility/Project. The Government Agency provides Usufruct Land for the project and other facilities as applicable (such as fuel & other utilities) and enters into a “Long Term Purchase/Off-Take Agreement” for the project’s product/service with the Developer; for the duration of the concession period. In return, the Developer undertakes to Design, Build, Finance and Operate/Maintain the Project/Facility for that concession period.
Owing to the complex and risky nature of such large projects, a Developer Consortium would include Strategic Investors, capable Technology Partners, Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) and Operation & Maintenance (O&M) or Facility Management (FM) firms; to provide the necessary financing (in Equity) and the technical expertise to design, build, operate/maintain the project/facility.
The developer Consortium in almost all cases would also have to engage external Technical, Financial and Legal Advisors to navigate thru the often complex Tender Documents and Project Agreements; and most importantly to meet the requirements of the potential Lender(s)-mainly international lenders- who would provide “Non-Recourse Project Financing” (based on project assets/projected cash flow and not upon corporate guarantees). Such Advisors would typically be engaged from the Bidding Stage thru Financial Close.
The success and applicability of planning, launching, building and operating such mega-projects within the PPP framework largely depends upon a favorable Regulatory Regime and Sovereign Credit Rating. Such would protect the interest of and attract the “Primary Risk Taking Stakeholders”, notably the Developers and more importantly the Lender(s) –particularly international lenders-, who would be providing Non-Recourse Financing and Long Tenure Loans.
Fortunately, all the GCC countries have developed such regulatory regimes and have enacted related PPP Laws & Regulations. Furthermore, most GCC countries enjoy very high sovereign rating (notably: Kuwait, UAE, and KSA)
