Techno Engineering & Associates (TE&A) was established in 2004 in Bucharest, Romania and ever since than it has gained a strategic leading position through its operations in Central and Eastern European markets, which have broadened over time to the wider MENA Region by establishing offices in Bulgaria, Qatar and Kuwait.
As part of its broad array of engineering consultancy services, TE&A has successfully assisted major international contractors to pursue a wide variety of claims and disputes through Dispute Boards, International Arbitration and Litigation under various forms of contract, yet predominantly under the entire suite of the FIDIC conditions of contract, by mainly establishing TEA’s clients entitlements to extensions of time and related additional costs thereof.
This was made possible by carefully selecting international and local personnel who have extensive experience and skills in contract management and interpretation of contracts, planning and delay analysis expertise, quantum analysis and quantity surveying abilities and equally important, local legal expertise to ensure that claims not only have merit under the respective contract, but those merits are secure and robust under the applicable law. The engineers and the experts in our company come from virtually almost every discipline and specialty, and they usually work in teams. Their roles may range from purely scientific or technical, to coordinating or managerial, or any combination-depending on the type and size of the client’s project.
TE&A’s success is down to its ability to provide one-stop-shop in-house packages enabling us to provide contractors with contract management assistance, planning engineering support, quantity surveying, claims preparation, adjudication referrals, counsel services and representation in formal adjudication, arbitration and litigation proceedings.
The projects to which these consulting assistances and claims services relate are mainly Eastern European, North African and Middle East major infrastructure developments in the transportation sector, national road renewal, national motorway programmes, regional road developments, buildings, wastewater treatment and extensive major rail renewal and new programmes.
As a consequence of its success, TE&A has opened offices in Sofia which enabled it to further develop business in Bulgaria and to secure a major Metro renewal project in Istanbul, Turkey (1bn Euro) in addition to other significant rail infrastructure projects in Algeria.
