Kuwait Design Practices

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

My office is chasing some work in Kuwait.  This will be a first time for us is the middle-east.  I have heard some interesting stories from other companies which have done work there (mid-east).  If anyone can answer any of the following questions for us, it would be great.


  1. Do I need to obtain a local engineering license to practice?  If so, who do I contact to start the process?
  2. What is the design standard? (IBC, UBC, a EuroCode, my choice, etc)
  3. Are there any local engineering firms which people would recommend?  Obviously we have never worked there before.  We are debating potentially hiring a local firm to work with.  This would help solve the first two problems and also help us with construction practices in the region.
