Technologists, Inc. to Build Women’s Dormitory at American University of Afghanistan
September 24, 2015
Technologists, Inc. (Ti) has been awarded a contract to design and build a new women’s dormitory at the American University of Afghanistan in Kabul.
Ti will construct the dormitory as a major subcontractor to Perez, APC, a leading architecture, design, and planning firm based in New Orleans. The project, which is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development, will support USAID’s mission to improve women’s access to higher education in Afghanistan. It includes a site assessment and geotechnical studies; design and construction of the building; and utility connections for electrical power, sewer, potable water, and the Internet. The project is valued at approximately $4 million.
“Ti is proud to work once again with our friends at Perez who share our deep commitment to women’s empowerment,” said Sayed Aziz Azimi, Ti’s founder and CEO. “Our company was one of the first firms in Afghanistan to hire and promote women in professional and managerial jobs. This new dormitory will make it easier than ever before for talented women to receive a good education and move into professional careers.”
Ti and Perez, APC partnered in 2014 to repair and improve three Faculties of Higher Education in Balkh, Faryab, and Jawzjan provinces. In 2013 Ti also completed construction of the International Center for Afghan Women’s Economic Development, a state-of-the-art academic facility at the American University of Afghanistan.
Technologists, Inc. (Ti) is an international engineering and management consulting company that works primarily in challenging and remote environments. Since 2003 Ti has completed more than 60 major projects in Afghanistan for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), USAID, German Development Bank (KfW), and other clients.
