Contracting and Engineering Works (CEW) Company of Lebanon was established in 1981, by Engineer Mohammad Rashed Hamadeh.
During the early 1980's, the government set forth national plans for development in all respects: Roads, water, national waste development, telecommunication etc.
CEW was awarded to handle Projects on the western side of Beirut, and work with the Council of Grand Projects for the City of Beirut as an official body.
In the late 1980's Lebanon went into a setback because of the economic and political situation. As a dynamic response to the decline in construction demand, CEW expanded and diversified its services and established RMC for Ready Mixed Concrete to supply the high demand for concrete in the private sector.
RMC's business lasted for 14 years.
CEW has also completed many Water projects, Roads, and Bridges in the City of Saida in South Lebanon. In Lebanon, CEW is classified as Class "A" for Water-Works, Road Works, and Building Contracting. Under CDR's own classifications, CEW is
pre-Qualified for projects up to 40 Million USD in all type of construction.
Al Ghurair CEW L.L.C. was formed though a strategic joint venture relating Abdullah & Hamad Al Ghurair Investment and CEW S.A.R.L.(Lebanon).
CEW's team has a wealth of experience in a variety of fields working under one common goal: "To escort and shape expertise in order to tailor the appropriate answer to the client's need. To provide optimal solutions under the prevailing constraints and deliver the best value for the client's money"
