ACE Moharram Bakhoum is a multi-disciplinary engineering and project management consultancy company, based in Egypt.[1]


The company operates in more than 40 countries, working on both private and publicly financed projects.[1]


According to the company's website, ACE Moharram Bakhoum was established in 1950 as a private partnership between Ahmed Moharram and Michel Bakhoum. The first projects executed by the partners was a storage area for printing machines constructed in the basement of a building in Cairo, followed by the design of a pharmacological factory. In the 1950s, the partners made their entry into the field of bridge design, for which they later became widely known[2]. By the 1970s, the company witnessed a regional expansion. In 1970, the first phase of the 6th of October Bridge was opened[3]. This bridge, which is considered the main artery of the Egyptian capital, was the first prestressed concrete bridge to be entirely designed, constructed and the construction supervised by Egyptian firms[4]. ACE Moharram Bakhoum was the designer and construction supervisor[5]. By this time, ACE had been involved in numerous high-profile projects in Egypt and the Middle East region, and the expansion of its activities to include other disciplines was necessary[6].[7]
