KCA London is delighted to announce its role as a consultant to an international consortium led by Hassan Allam which has been officially appointed to provide operations, services and facilities management to the soon-to-be opened Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM).

KCA London played a central role in the bid preparation and negotiating process, and anticipate supporting the consortium’s start-up of works.
