With the Italian Piccini group, the global leader in civil engineering works, being responsible for the designing and construction of Cameroon’s sports complex, Egis is responsible for the project management and has secured the work surveillance contract for a period of 27 months.

Marc Vallee, director of Egis Batiments International in Africa, confirmed that the purpose of the meeting was to evaluate the level of work already done at the Olembe construction site and to discuss the future development of the project.

Vallee said that the project is scheduled to be completed by January 2019.

“We are forced to mobilise our efforts to meet the set deadlines,” he added.

With a strong international presence, Egis Batiments International has supported projects in health care, judiciary, education, sports and leisure facilities, hotels, rail stations and air terminals, cultural amenities, commercial areas, industry, housing and public buildings.

The Olembe Sports Complex is aimed to be built as one of the leading sports amenities in the world, with a 60,000-seater covered stadium, two training centres, a lake, a gymnasium and an Olympic-sized swimming pool.

In addition, the sports complex will have tennis, basketball and volleyball courts, a hotel complex and several shopping areas, with an aim to provide the world-class service and facilities to the participating members in 2019.
