History

Al Geemi & Partners was established as a partnership in 1980 by the esteemed Bin Hamoodah brothers and Mr. Monther Farah. The driving force behind the establishment of the company was the demand for a local-based contracting company that was capable of undertaking the projects offered by the construction boom during that time. Al Geemi was integrated into the Bin Hamoodah Group, a diverse set of companies owned by the entrepreneurial brothers.

More major projects soon followed, with Al Geemi playing a prominent role in the development of Abu Dhabi’s most fundamental infrastructure and prestigious buildings. Projects included the construction of Abu Dhabi’s Eastern Ring Road and Western Ring Road which connected the downtown areas to the rest of the country, the continuation of Salam Street, the ADNOC FOD head office building and other high rises for prominent Emiratis.

After a few years, the company expanded its scope to include projects outside the mainland in areas such as the Western Region, where main onshore oil fields are located, the Eastern Region, Asab, Ruwais, and Al Ain. There, it constructed a wide range of projects which included airport runways, town centers, and storage facilities for crude oil with its main clients being the Abu Dhabi Government, its municipalities and affiliated companies.

Currently, the company has become one of the largest local engineering and infrastructure companies operating in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi with 4500 employees and the expertise of undertaking a wide range of large-scale infrastructure and building projects.
