Summary

Surveying works, monitoring the quality and programs, establishment of design reports for geotechnical investigations for engineering purposes: roads/highways/railways/ tunnels and bridges, dams, large onshore and offshore civil structures in soft and hard grounds, , ports, quays, breakwaters, land reclamations, caissons, ground improvement and reinforcement ( VR, DR, DC, VC ), special foundations, piles, micro piles, retaining structures, landslides, diaphragm walls and large embankments on compressible soils, water supply projects, environment….

Technical and business development within several Companies & Engineering consultancies specialized in the field of geotechnics & hydrogeology.

Assignments accomplished in several African countries and in the GCC region: Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Chad, Benin, Rwanda, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Niger, Mauritania, Lebanon, Dubai, KSA India and Laos as a Geotechnical expert with international engineering consultancies and companies: STUDI (roads/highways/railways/ tunnels and bridges), STUCKY, IOTA/COYNE-ET-BELLIER, GEOFOR INTERNATIONAL, LOUIS BERGER UK, FREYSSINET MENARD SAUDI ARABIA( soil improvement for oil and gas projects ), Consortium “Nesma/Impregilo/Larsen” (Metro/ Tunnel and Viaducts), BECR ( maritime project ), Hydroplante ( Dam project in Niger ); GPC/TRACTEBEL ( Dam project in Lebanon ), PEMS Engineering ( Tunnel project in Northern India ), TR Engineering ( Bridge project in Benin ) and EEI/Tractebel ( two hydropower projects in LAOS : XPXN and in Cameroun : Nachtigal project ) . During these assignments, I designed and supervised the geotechnical survey works on site, land and marine investigations (from jack up platform) on a daily basis and in the laboratory, and checked quality to ensure that the required standards are met.

Participation in various studies, marketing and training missions on specialized software: GEOS, PISTE+, TALREN4, FOXTA, etc…

Good knowledge of different design codes, standards and practices. I master the executing procedures of laboratory and in-situ testing in general and road tests in particular and I have strong skills in data compilation, Geomechanics modelling and simulation, management, interpretation, identifying geological hazards and controlling risks

More than 24 years of experience in geotechnical design and control of works and materials particularly in roads/highways and bridge projects.
During these years strong knowledge and various skills were gained in :
coordinating the geotechnical laboratory activities, monitoring the quality and programs, design reports for geotechnical investigations for engineering purposes: roads/highways/railways/ tunnels and bridges, dams, large onshore and offshore civil structures in soft and hard grounds, ground improvement and reinforcement ( VR, DR, DC, VC ), special foundations, piles, micro piles, retaining structures, slope stabilisation, diaphragm walls and large embankments on compressible soils, water supply projects, environment….
Technical support to several Companies & Engineering consultancies specialized in the field of geotechnics & hydrogeology: Designs, Review and approval of designs, review and approval of Method Statements, control of execution and approval of RFIs...

Assignments accomplished in several African countries, in the GCC region and in Asia: Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Chad, Benin, Rwanda, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Niger, Mauritania, Lebanon ( Dam project with tunnels/NATM ), Dubai and KSA as a Geotechnical expert with international engineering consultancies and companies: STUDI (Tunnel/NATM, roads/highways/railways/ and bridges), STUCKY, IOTA/COYNE-ET-BELLIER (Dam project), GEOFOR INTERNATIONAL, LOUIS BERGER UK, FREYSSINET MENARD SAUDI ARABIA( soil improvement ), Consortium “Nesma/Impregilo/Larsen” (Metro/ Tunnel/NATM and TBM, underground stations, and Viaducts), HYDROPLANTE ( Dam project/Design and control ), SAME ( Technical Methodologies for tenders including hydropower projects in Africa ), ACEM, EDC ( Geotechnical intervention in road design ) , a Railway tunnel project ( T14-T15 tunnels/NATM ) in India with PEMS Engineering in JV with D2 Consult International GmbH, a Bridge project in Benin with TR ENGINEERING and two hydropower projects in Laos and in Cameroon with EEI/Tractebel.

Good knowledge of different design codes, standards and practices. I master the executing procedures of laboratory and in-situ testing in general and I have strong skills in data compilation, Geomechanics modelling and simulation, interpretation and choosing the suitable geotechnical parameters for design, identifying geological hazards and controlling risks.
