Who we are

How We Work

At Dar, we speak the languages of our clients and peoples.

Our understanding of our clients’ and cultures’ social, political and economic contexts shapes our endeavors. We know how to closely and carefully listen to their needs in some of the world’s most spoken tongues.

Having worked with more than 950 clients from over 63 countries, we know that long-lasting individual relationships are what matter. Individual relationships are our foundations of the future.


Nothing is difficult that cannot be accomplished given sufficient imagination, commitment and determination.

Our Impact

By combining our understanding of the local with our global expertise, we provide solutions for our communities which are enduring.

In the Middle East and Africa, our projects have helped people to thrive both socially and economically. In Saudi Arabia, we helped build the world’s largest all-woman university. The 60,000 undergraduate students attending Princess Nourah Bint Abdulrahman University will forge Saudi Arabia’s brighter future. Our expansion of the great Suez Canal in Africa will usher Egypt’s economy into a new era of global trade. And in Angola, our water, parliamentary and electricity projects have helped the country rise after decades of civil strife.

Through these-and thousands of other projects, we participate actively in the development of our societies.
