        Official opening of new offices for ADPI’s subsidiary in Lebanon:
                           ADPI Middle East (ADPI ME)

  The new Beirut offices of ADPI subsidiary company ADPI Middle East were officially opened today
  by French Minister of Economic Affairs, Industry and Employment Christine Lagarde as part of her
  official visit to Lebanon.

  Madame Lagarde, accompanied by a delegation of representatives from some 20 French
  companies, paid tribute to ADPI decision to base its French Architecture and Engineering Design
  subsidiary in this region. The company specialises in the design of airports and other complex
  installations.


  The establishment of ADPI ME in Beirut is in line with ADPI’s strategy to establish a
  physical presence at the heart of its most buoyant markets.
  The continued growth of ADPI further consolidates its status as a leading global force in the field of
  design, and one of France's top design companies.

  With many successful prestige projects in the planning, architecture and engineering of airports
  and city centre developments, ADPI has grown very strongly over the last three years. This
  impressive growth includes a number of high-profile major projects in the Middle East, and confirms
  ADPI’s ambition to become the global benchmark company for architecture and engineering. The
  continued growth of ADPI will be achieved by the company establishing a presence at the heart of
  its most buoyant markets.

  It is in this context that ADPI set up a new subsidiary based in Beirut: ADPI Middle East.

  The choice of Beirut was prompted not only by its geographical location at the heart of the Near
  and Middle East, but also because of the business status of the Lebanese capital and the fact that
  much of the renowned expertise of Lebanese engineering is based here. ADPI ME will be primarily
  an engineering design office for construction (structural calculations, air conditioning, electrical
  systems, plumbing systems, etc.), civil engineering, roads and utilities.


  In the words of ADPI CEO Alain le Pajolec:

  “The mission of ADPI ME is to support the growth of ADPI in the Middle East by enabling the
  company to offer its customers a full range of architectural and engineering solutions that deliver
  the high quality standards on which the company's reputation has been built. These services will
  always include innovative, experience-based upstream design expertise, initiated by the specialist
  head office teams, and will now be extended to include the full range of construction engineering
  design work currently sub-contracted to local companies. ADPI on-site teams will now be
  strengthened by the presence of ADPI ME experts who can contribute the full range of ADPI
  expertise, and therefore limit the involvement of external service providers”.
