Geotechnical engineering

One of the most fundamental aspects of any land development project is the need to determine a site’s characteristics to ensure the interaction between the structure and subsurface materials, soil and rock. Intertek’s accredited geotechnical services and construction materials testing specialists can perform a wide variety of subsurface explorations and tests necessary for your projects. We are a partner you can trust to bridge the gap between raw site materials and finished structures. We can help prepare your project or building design for success, offering a wide range of geotechnical engineering consulting, drilling services and expertise to give you the assurance you need.

A thorough subsurface exploration can result in a more cost-effective foundation design, reduce construction delays caused by unforeseen conditions, and help prepare you for potential geohazards. All projects are supported by internal quality assurance and safety plans that give you the subsurface and site information necessary for a successful project.

Environmental engineering

Barwasim provides environmental engineering services to support public and private clients through development and upgrade of water, wastewater and solid waste infrastructure and treatment facilities; subsurface investigations and associated geotechnical design; and identification and remediation of hazardous materials.

This expertise includes a variety of services for the development, analysis and upgrade of public works infrastructure. Our experience includes providing design, inspection, and monitoring for water supply, treatment, storage and distribution; wastewater conveyance and treatment; and landfill, recycling, and waste-to-energy facilities. Barwasim also works with government and industrial clients to resolve contemporary environmental issues, manage health and ecological risk, and help reduce financial liability.

Barwasim offers clients a detailed understanding of regional regulatory requirements and market conditions. Field personnel frequently travel and are available for a wide range of project assignments.

Sustainability approach

Barwasim equipment and systems that are designed to meet the population's essential service needs — including roads, bridges, telephone pylons, hydroelectric power stations, etc. — based on all-round sustainable principles. This means the infrastructure is environmentally friendly from end to end, and that includes economic, financial, social and institutional factors.

With urban areas growing exponentially, especially in emerging countries, sustainable infrastructure approach is showing its worth as a more efficient, productive and environmentally friendly option. Furthermore, according to the World Bank, these facilities prove more profitable as they make for more reliable services and greater resilience to extreme weather events, as well as lessening the impact of natural threats to people and the economy.


Infrastructure makes our daily lives possible in the manner to which we’ve grown accustomed and we don’t give it much thought. It’s only when there’s a problem, something stops working, we outgrow current capabilities, or repairs are required that people take notice of the water treatment facilities, sewer lines, roads, utility grids, bridges, and railways that underwrite our daily lives.

Proper and consistent infrastructure planning and management is vitally important, and well thought out asset management is crucial to the daily lives of millions of people. Navigating the planning approval system is not straightforward, however, which is why Barwasim employs experts who live where they work and know the fabric of the environment that they work to sustain and improve. We have a relevant and long-standing track record of successfully delivering preeminent and internationally significant infrastructure projects, alongside a portfolio of local, community-based initiatives.


At Barwasim, we work with you to create the maps you envision. We provide all of our cartographic services, from concept through delivery, in the most efficient and cost-effective means possible. This includes giving you the copyright and all of the native files so that you can use your maps in whatever ways you feel are necessary for your products. In effect, our goal is to become an extension of your project team.

Whether you have one map or 100 maps to create, our staff is well-equipped to provide you with exactly what you need, when you need it. We look forward to working with you on your next graphics project and becoming part of your production team.

We take pride in our ability to work well with diverse people and situations. It’s team strength that we believe positions our clients for success through thoughtful collaboration.

Project full study

The project full study of a project is a detailed analysis of a preferred facility development strategy as determined in the master plan study. Barwasim fully determine the outcome, which will provide the most, cost efficient and effective delivery of its services. The preferred options for developing facilities to accommodate service delivery can then be determined. The project full study done by our experts will confirm the need for a specific capital project(s) to be undertaken to enhance the delivery of services and assess the viability of the project outcomes in capital and recurrent financial terms. Barwasim's project full study investigates the project objectives as described in the functional brief. The feasibility study will review the viable range of options available. These options should then be evaluated against a set of agreed criteria. The feasibility study generally recommends a course of action and a realistic estimate of the total project end cost and life cycle cost.

Project risk assessment

A well-defined and integrated risk management process maximizes value through judicious use of time and money. Barwasim's risk management specialists identify and evaluate project risks, manage risk registers, facilitate qualitative risk assessments, conduct quantitative risk analyses, and develop risk mitigation strategies. In conjunction with project stakeholders, we develop qualitative risk assessments; integrate those assessments into robust, quantitative cost and schedule risk analyses; and monitor and mitigate risks accordingly.
