Transforming Egypt’s Construction Horizon with MEP Expertise
n the ever-evolving landscape of Egypt, a nation on the path of rapid development and growth, construction projects are shaping the horizon. This growth symbolizes our collective vision as a society, driven by the ambition to ascend to the ranks of leading nations across all fronts. Those responsible for transforming this vision into reality include numerous individuals and enterprises working tirelessly to construct the buildings that will define our future.
However, these modern-day builders are more than paying homage to our architectural past. They are infusing innovation and contemporary sensibilities into their projects, aiming to showcase both ingenuity and sophistication as we march forward into the future. Standing at the forefront of this transformative journey, I-Con Solutions contributes its expertise in MEP, which stands for Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing services, to various firms established within the Middle East region. Headed by Managing Director Ahmed Shawky, a dynamic leader with a decade of experience, the firm has been gaining notoriety in the industry since its inception in 2012.
Emerging from modest origins, the company initially focused on serving offices and residential villas by designing comprehensive structural MEP designs. Based in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and The United Arab Emirates, I-Con Solutions takes pride in its unique installations tailored to complement each project’s interior design and practicality.
The firm offers a comprehensive suite of services for construction projects. They actively engage in the design phase, collaborating closely with design consultants to create efficient and code-compliant plans for MEP systems. By doing so, they simplify project management as their coordination services eliminate the need for clients to manage multiple third-party contractors. This coordination not only saves time but can also lead to cost efficiencies. In addition to their design expertise, they take charge of material procurement, sourcing everything needed for the systems they develop, including electrical components, plumbing fixtures, and HVAC equipment. After designing and acquiring the suitable material, the team of engineers excels in the installation process, ensuring precision and safety. Prior to project completion, rigorous testing is conducted across MEP systems to verify their functionality to ensure client satisfaction by fine-tuning and calibrating to optimize performance for operational readiness.

Examples include projects like the Sahara International School in the New Administrative Capital, the defining Capfloors that outline the new city of New El-Alamein, and the Sax Restaurant situated at Cairo Gate. These projects were impeccably powered and designed by I-Con Solutions in critical areas of development within Egypt, as both the New Administrative Capital and New El-Alamein are locations with a significant amount of priority within construction. It further reflects the company’s collaborative efforts, as the Sax Restaurant project was in cooperation with and executed by the architect Hussam Aboulfotough.
