About Us

It was in the 1960s when my father Farid Khouri started the contracting business. He started working on a medium scale. He strived and worked very hard to raise a good family and educate his six children to complete their University degrees. After graduating from the American University of Beirut in 1983, I decided to continue higher education in the United States of America; six years later I graduated with a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor, Michigan. I worked in Detroit, Michigan for four years, after which I decided to come back to my country Lebanon and start my own engineering and contracting company. It was Optimal Engineering Consulting and Contracting, SARL, or OECC. My objective in returning home was to help in the process of rebuilding my country that was coming out of a war that lasted 15 years, and at the same time establish myself and grow with it.

Optimal was established in January 1994. We started our operations in a small office space not exceeding 60m2. Our perspective has been all along that, with our educational capacity and experience, honesty and hard work are the two main factors in climbing the ladders of success. We started getting projects and started growing little by little to have an office space now exceeding 300m2 and to increase from one engineer and one secretary to become now about 50 employees consisting of many Engineers, Secretaries, Formen, Construction Workers, Plumbers, Electricians, Goldsmiths, Drivers, and Helpers.

Optimal now is a very well established company in Lebanon; it is ranked the highest Grade 1 in the Ministry of Public Works – Roads and Buildings. We have executed many buildings as well as infrastructure works and have performed many sophisticated engineering studies in Lebanon as well as in the Arab World. At Optimal, we believe that customer satisfaction is a premier requirement; our engineers and workers use the latest State-of-the-Art technology in the processes of Construction as well as Management.
