About Us

Prior to 2003, contracting work in Iraq was and to a great extent restricted to the governmental public sector. This in addition to International Sanctions applied in 1991 and continuing till 1997, and in the absence of any foreign investment and lack of any major industrial development, all of those factors reflected most adversely on the construction trade. Private construction was greatly hampered and could neither develop nor keep up with modern world advancement.

In 2003 however, all this changed rapidly with the introduction of major international investments, the initiation of the Rehabilitation of Iraq program and the growing need for the implementation of major industrial projects.

There were excessive demands on the construction industry and companies had to quickly develop their resources in terms of management, equipments and manpower to cope with the new demands.

Those facts were recognized by the top management of Burj Alsama. A plan was immediately put into action to introduce modern construction skills and techniques and to develop our local resources and manpower.
