Over 18 years of professional experience in infrastructure development, focusing on project planning and management, procurement, contracts management, capacity building, project and budget controls, construction supervision and business development.

Abdullah is a civil engineer with over 18 years’ experience in the consultancy sector for infrastructure development.

His roles in various projects and organisations include: project planning, coordination of design teams, asset management system and maintenance management systems, capacity building, procurement, project and contracts management (including International Federation of Consulting Engineers-based contracts), project and budget controls, construction supervision and management.

He also has working experience in complete cycle projects, in both the roads and buildings sectors, including six years’ work on the Fael Khair Schools-cum-Cyclone Shelters Construction Project in Bangladesh.

Most of the projects Abdullah has worked on have been funded through international development partners (DFID, ADB, WB, JICA, CRC, CIDA and IDB). He is also familiar with international standards and requirements of development aid work.

Abdullah has been employed by IMC in a variety of roles since 2004, and from January 2009 he is a permanent staff member of IMC. He has worked on a number of projects across Bangladesh, Indonesia, Nepal and Ethiopia. Since 2009, he has also been providing support to the IMC’s business development on the preparation of proposals and contract negotiations.

I’ve been with IMC over 12 years and this is the right place to continue, thanks to its very supportive management, the variety of challenging and interesting opportunities together with its multidisciplinary team, which most importantly help in developing a robust and diversified professional career.
