About usEstablished in 2001 with the vision to be the foremost business enterprise in value engineering, Access Engineering stands today in the forefront of the civil engineering industry in Sri Lanka.
With a track record of successfully completing over 100 civil engineering projects consisting of bridges and flyovers to roads and highways, harbor projects, water supply schemes and optical fibre backbone projects; Access Engineering has been the strength behind many infrastructure development programmes across the island.
We are armed with some of the best talent from the industry which currently stands over 3,000 employees including over 150 engineering professionals, offering cutting-edge engineering solutions, complemented by a modern fleet of specialized machinery and equipment. Our in-house integrated services include Geotechnical Laboratory Services, Design, Construction, Piling, Dredging, HDD Micro Tunneling, etc. Our own supply chain island-wide includes Quarry, Crusher Plants, Asphalt Plants and Concrete Batching Plants.
Our invitation to selected investors together with our historic IPO in March 2012 to seek a listing on the Colombo Stock Exchange which was oversubscribed in record time, reassured us that our reputation was not only within the industry sectors we operate in, but in an overall corporate context. With this initiative, 20% of new shares were introduced to the company, enhancing our equity by a further Rs. 5 Billion. We also became the first Greenfield construction company to be listed on the national bourse, having the highest market capitalization within the ‘construction and engineering sector’ and placed ourselves among the larger corporations of the country.
Over the years, we have been entrusted with many significant and diversified projects by both local and foreign principals. These include the Sangupiddy Bridge across the Killali Lagoon in Jaffna, Hambantota International Airport project (Cargo and Fire Rescue Buildings, Airport Access Road, Fuel Hydrant for the Apron and a Water Tower), Trincomalee Integrated Infrastructure Project (design of 5 Major Bridges and construction of a major portion of the A15 Road), Harbour Rehabilitation Project (construction and design of Major Works at Hikkaduwa, Mirrissa and Puranawella Fishery Harbours), Hambantota Water Supply Project, Batticaloa Water Supply project, Design and build of 1137 housing units at Henamulla, Jaffna Rehabilitation & Improvement Project (3 major roads), Outer Circular Highway Piling Project and many more.
As the leading company in the construction sector to promote innovation in engineering, Access Engineering won the Best Knowledge Integrator award presented by the National Chamber of Commerce Sri Lanka for the second consecutive year at the National Business Excellence Awards among the many other awards, Construction Performance Awards presented by ICTAD, Engineering Excellence Awards presented by the Institute of Engineers of Sri Lanka, etc.
We acquired Sathosa Motors PLC (SML) whose portfolio includes the importation and sale of Isuzu commercial vehicles in February 2012, which we believe will further consolidate our business and we hope to benefit from the envisaged synergies in the coming years. The management company of ‘Access Towers’, Access Realties (Pvt.) Ltd, also became a fully owned subsidiary of Access Engineering in 2011.
Access Engineering is recognized as a major and specialized contractor by the National Contractors Association of Sri Lanka and ICTAD (Institute of Construction Training and Development) with Cl grading for six engineering sectors, GP-B1 for Piling and EM-1 for Telecommunication. The company has ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 accreditations for quality and environmental management systems and is a signatory to the UN Global Compact, the first construction company in Sri Lanka to achieve this status. We are now in the process of acquiring ISO 17025:2005 accreditation and OHSAS 18001:2007 accreditation.
