Stanley Consultants, a 101-year-old global consulting architectural and engineering firm with 1,000 employees, was one of the first US engineering firms to enter the international market with entry into Africa in 1956.
With a focus on energy, water, transportation and the environment, Stanley Consultants supports cities and large industrial companies to cost-effectively expand the coverage of their infrastructure while improving performance and service delivery. The firm offers a wide range of services and capabilities across the project life-cycle, including program management, planning and feasibility, design, environmental management, and construction supervision.
Stanley Consultants serves clients in Africa through operational offices in Liberia and Ghana. These offices provide local support and response to client needs, as well as access to the firm’s global spectrum of services and expertise.
Stanley Consultants has a long and distinguished history of designing notable projects in Africa, such as large hydropower facilities in Liberia and Uganda, major highways in Zambia, airports in Nigeria, water supply and distribution systems in Mozambique, wastewater treatment plants in Egypt, and regional water resource assessments across multiple countries in Southern Africa. In 2011, the firm provided design services for the world’s largest reverse osmosis desalination plant in Algeria. These projects have been delivered for clients as diverse as the World and African Development Banks to local power and water utilities.
Stanley Consultants also has a long-standing history of providing comprehensive utility systems design for public and defense clients, including water, power, and communication systems. Development of such systems has provided the firm with a unique understanding of utility development and integration. This, in addition to the firm’s renowned transportation expertise, has propelled Stanley Consultants into master planning for both defense and municipal partners.
According to experts in the company, there will be an increase in master planning with a focus on urban development, as well as transportation within the context of urban master planning in the future.
