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.
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.
