Tekfen Construction continues its

streak of accident-free operation around the

world. The most recent example is Qatar,

where 18 million accident-free man-hours

with no workday loss have been completed

at the North Road Side Roads and Addition-

al Junctions Project.

This achievement represents the highest

accident-free score in Tekfen’s projects in

Qatar, and has been awarded by the Public

Works Authority (ASHGHAL) with a certifi-

cate. We congratulate all project members

who have contributed to this achievement

and wish them continued success.

Engineering News-Record

es an annual list of “Top 250 International

Contractors of the World;” Turkish compa-

nies that made it on the list received their

awards at a ceremony on February 22, hosted

jointly by the Turkish Ministry of Economy

and the Turkish Contractors Association.

Representatives of the contracting sec-

tor were present at the ceremony, which

started off with the keynote speech by

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. In

his speech, Erdoğan said every Turkish con-

tractor is an ambassador bringing wherever

they go the culture, colour, and values of

their country and a bridge joining civiliza-

tions, and that despite regional difficulties,

he had great confidence Turkish contractors

will successfully fulfill their responsibilities

to enable Turkey reach its goals for 2023.

Following the speeches, Tekfen Holding

Vice President in charge of the Contracting

Group Ümit Özdemir received Tekfen Con-

struction’s achievement award from Turkish

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.



The “Top 250 International Contractors

of the World” list is prepared annually based

on the business volume of contracting com-

panies outside their own countries. Tekfen

Construction was on the list again this year,

placing 118th among 250 international con-

tracting companies.

Turkey is one of the countries that stand

out with their successful performance on

the ENR list in recent years. In 2003, only

eight Turkish companies were on the list,

whereas there were 40 in 2016. After China,

Turkey is second among countries with

most contractors on the list in the last nine

years, once again maintaining its place at

the top this year.
