         Center for Engineering and Planning (CEP)                              Capabilities & Experience



    Presentation of Center for Engineering and Planning
                           (CEP)
Background and Objectives
The Center for Engineering and Planning (CEP) was established to meet the growing need
for a professionally competent consulting firm to provide planning and engineering services
for the developmental activities of municipalities, village councils and committees, and
public and private institutions and organizations in Palestine.
Since its establishment in 1984 CEP has been involved in a large number of projects both in
Palestine’s inland region (West Bank) and coastal region (Gaza Strip) in the areas of socio-
economic studies, town and regional planning, housing, architecture and building
engineering, road and traffic engineering, water supply and distribution, sewage and
stormwater drainage systems, irrigation systems, industrial development projects, and the
development of teaching and laboratory programs for academic and technical institutions.
The professional services offered by CEP in these areas include preliminary investigations
and comprehensive research, field studies and reports, performance evaluation studies,
engineering and economic feasibility studies, master planning, preliminary and detailed
engineering designs for buildings and infrastructure projects, the preparation of tender
documentation and the provision of construction management/quality assurance services
during project construction and operation, project scheduling, monitoring and appraisal.
Furthermore, CEP has been retained by a number of donor organizations to provide program
management services.
In order to meet the requirements of sound performance in research, planning, engineering
and management, CEP employs about 30 people including qualified planners, architects,
engineers, economists, computer scientists and technicians. In addition to its permanent staff,
CEP frequently employs part-time services of experts from local universities and institutions
and, when necessary, draws on the skill, expertise and technical resources of several
associates throughout the world.
CEP's headquarters are located in Ramallah, with permanent branch offices in Nablus and
Gaza. This arrangement enhances CEP's performance efficiency and enables it to conduct its
activities in the various regions of the country in a timely and economic manner.
In June 1989, CEP was retained by American Near East Refugee Aid (ANERA) to provide
program management services to ANERA-assisted projects in the West Bank and Gaza.
Some of the projects were nearing the completion of construction, while others were either in
the design or conception stages.
The projects included municipal infrastructure development, marketing services and agro-
processing. In terms of size, these projects ranged from small-scale micro-dairy facility, to
large-scale infrastructure projects such as the Gaza City rainwater conservation project.
The beneficiaries of ANERA-assisted projects are either Palestinian indigenous cooperative
and charitable organizations, or municipalities and village councils. The assistance extended
to the cooperative and charitable organizations include grants to partially cover the cost of

 construction and supply of equipment for projects in the area of agro-industry and marketing
 of agricultural products, such as micro-dairies, grading and packing facilities, cold storage
 facilities and health services. Assistance to municipalities and village councils include grants
 for infrastructure and services projects such as rain water drainage water supply and
 distribution, irrigation, sewage collection, drainage, treatment and reuse, construction of
 slaughterhouse, light industrial complexes and wholesale markets.
 The varying nature of the institutions benefiting from ANERA’s assistance made it relatively
 difficult to follow a standard procedure in dealing with the institutions. This fact coupled
 with the varying degree of progress of the individual projects and the less systematic
 approach used in earlier years in handling technical and financial matters relating to ANERA-
 assisted projects, made it necessary to deal with individual organizations and projects in a
 manner imposed by these factors.
 The main activities of the Center for Engineering and Planning related to ANERA-assisted
 projects fall into the following major areas:
1.            Project Planning
2.            Project Scheduling
3.            Project Monitoring and Appraisal
 In the area of project planning, CEP’s staff activities range from participation in the
 conceptual and preliminary planning and design, to final review of plans and detailed designs,
 tender documents and cost estimation.
 In the area of project scheduling, CEP's staff activities include close participation in the
 tendering and bid evaluation process to overall supervision of the actual construction and
 intervention in the related contractual activities.
 The major monitoring and appraisal activities include participation in discussions and
 providing consultations regarding the lack of progress or disruption of work, with clients and
 contractors, reporting on progress and making recommendations towards the improvement of
 performance efficiency.
 Moreover, CEP has undertaken a number of socio-economic studies and master planning
 projects (both urban planning and water resources) for clients including USAID, the UNDP,
 Center for Refugee Studies of Canada’s York university, local village and town councils and
 others.
 In the area of infrastructure development, CEP has been actively involved in the preparation
 of assessment and feasibility studies, master plans for roads, water supply and distribution,
 sewage collection, treatment and reuse, stormwater drainage and environmental impact
 assessments. In the course of these activities CEP’s staff have become very familiar with the
 operational modalities of Palestinian municipalities and village councils and accumulated a
 wealth of information and data related to the physical, institutional, regulatory and legal
 aspects of infrastructure planning and development including water supply and distribution
 activities.
 CEP employs computers and CAD for building design, project management, physical
 planning and visual assessment.

       and level of education, labor and manpower characteristics, household size
       and general condition.

    3. Detailed study of the physical terrain to
       determine topography, slopes and the
       nature and characteristics of soil.

    4. Projections, based on the above
       information, of population, physical and
       developmental requirements of land and
       infrastructural services.
