Our History

THE ENTREPRENEURS’ SUCCESS STORY

Two inspirational business leaders, Georges Tannouri and Elie Tannouri, built their first company, Shelter Contracting, into a 3 billion dollars net worth of projects. Today at Shelter Group, more than 40 years down the line with a staff force of approximately 1,000-strong and still growing, we stand apart in the construction industry.
Back in 1971 when the two Lebanese engineers Georges Tannouri and Elie Tannouri first founded Shelter Contracting. Their vision: “What our minds can conceive, we can achieve”. While it may have seemed ambitious, the Tannouris’ vision became their trademark. Sharing a common goal of quality and a passion for customer service, the two entrepreneurs established Shelter Contracting as a “one-stop house”. No matter the scale, the complexity and the constraints of a project, Shelter Contracting would have a unique set up allowing it to undertake large-scale and multi-activity contracts.

BUILDING THE FOUNDATIONS

Since Shelter’s foundation, the opportunities encountered were big. Shelter took the challenge and delved into the accelerating construction and development growth of the Middle East and Gulf Region. In 1975, the privately-owned company headquartered in the United Arab Emirates; categorizing its services under both Creative Design and Build and General Contracting.

EXPANDING THE HORIZONS

With the business flourishing, Shelter Contracting expanded to have offices in Lebanon and France. Commitment, passion and excellence distinguished Shelter from our peers; and soon we had undertaken major turnkey contracts.

EXPLORING NEW MARKETS

Shelter’s unique set up allowed us to add huge value throughout the infrastructure cycle of our projects in the 1990’s. While strengthening our technical expertise in our areas of work, we developed a holistic view of society and infrastructure. Our strong capabilities granted us the right balance of ingredients to develop further to new markets. In few years, Shelter’s work touch a wide variety of sectors ranging from major infrastructure projects (including roads, water, power & electricity) to distinctive residential buildings, luxury residences, commercial buildings, institutional structures and social infrastructure.

COMFORTING GROWTH

Shelter’s approach is utterly dynamic, and with changing market conditions, the company reacts and quickly adapts. In 2002, to meet a growing market demand, Shelter Contracting moved its headquarters to Qatar. With increased size, we have further developed our expertise in facilities management, finishing services and manufacturing and trading services. These, together with our General Contracting and Design & Build services, constitute Shelter Group and ensure we can provide fully integrated support services for buildings and infrastructure. Shelter Group’s product mix complements the ever-changing economy.

NEW OPPORTUNITIES

SHELTER re-established its offices in Italy for Research & Development, technical design and engineering support, and specialized building services.

From our humble beginnings, we have grown to become one of the few companies in the region with the skills to design, procure, execute, deliver and further maintain the most extreme projects. 2,000+ passionate and talented individuals constitute Shelter family. Every day, we work together so that our clients enjoy an unforgettable customer experience.
