Louis Berger first began working in Africa in 1961 with the construction of the Calabar-Ikom Road and Calabar Cross River Bridge in Nigeria, and has since worked in more than 54 countries.

We have developed deep experience throughout the region across a range of sectors, including transportation, economic and institutional development, power and energy, buildings and facilities and water.

The firm brings an acute awareness to the environmental and social impacts of infrastructure development projects, with a proven track record of meeting the needs of various clients in local governments, private companies, aid agencies and multilateral institutions.

Louis Berger is committed to the economic, social and environmental development of African nations. As such, the technical transfer of skills is an integral part of how the company does business. Today, Africans make up 75 percent of Louis Berger’s corps of experts and project staff across the region.
