Delivering Capital Projects.

Olfa Hamdi - A Global Expert in Capital Project Planning and Execution


Engineer, Inventor, Author, Speaker, and Capital Projects Expert. 

An international expert in Capital Project Predictability and a pioneer in Advanced Work Packaging (AWP), I have worked  and studied to become an engineer and executive on three continents. I was born and raised in Tunisia, where I learned to speak four languages. I have founded the Advanced Work Packaging Institute and co-founded Concord Project Technologies, a unique research and technology company dedicated to the implementation of management systems in complex capital projects.
Co-authoring the three-volume Industry Book on Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) is a personal point of pride of mine. My hard work has also led me to earning two Masters of Science in Engineering and a graduate degree in construction law. I serve as a key member of the Construction Industry Institute’s research team 272 (CII RT 272), which significantly expanded existing models for WorkFace Planning. My thesis, published at The University of Texas Austin, is entitled "Advanced Work Packaging (AWP): from project definition through site execution”, and is the first academic publication on the subject of AWP.
