6. Samer Khoury, president of engineering and construction, CCC (Power 100 ranking: 6)
For another year, the president of engineering and construction at Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC), Samer Khoury, has made it into the Construction Week Power 100 list.
The company, which describes itself as the largest construction enterprise in the Middle East with more than 100,000 staff, enjoyed another stellar year of business.
Demonstrating its forward-thinking approach to engineering and construction, the contracting giant entered into a tie-up with Immense Technology Labs this year to create a cutting-edge digital warehouse, as part of extensive plans to embrace and incorporate disruptive technology.
It will allow the contractor to create a digital inventory of its spare parts and components, both of which it will subsequently produce using 3D printing on an ad hoc basis.
This will help CCC to cut its carbon footprint by reducing the requirement to transport goods internationally, and combat waste by ensuring only the exact number of parts are made.
