An international group of multi-disciplinary consultants, which specialize in the core disciplines of real estate development, public policy, water works, power generation/distribution, urban and regional planning, and more...
We think globally and work globally... Offices on three continents and projects around the globe.
We treat construction job sites like an on-site factory that manufactures a building.
“After earning degrees in Planning, and in Health Policy Management, I needed to find some direction before grad school. Volunteering on an East African materialsDIRECT project over the summer was a life-changing experience! I can hardly wait to finish my MPA and start changing the world.”
