A construction company with local and global reach that focuses on self-performing work in all of our regional territories.
Integrity. We hold ourselves to the highest standards in conducting our business with uncompromised ethics. We operate under the tenets of honesty, fairness, trust, accountability and hard work.
Relationships. We believe in cultivating open and wholly collaborative relationships that are respectful and rewarding to all stakeholders, whether they are Clients, Partners, Subcontractors, Vendors, Employees or Communities.
Quality & Service. We believe in distinguishing ourselves by exceeding expectations in quality and service. Our best work results from our commitment to providing the most responsive service and delivering the highest quality possible.
Safety. Vital to our industry, employees and the communities in which we work is our full dedication to a safety culture focused on prevention and zero injuries. Maintaining a safe and healthy workplace and job site is accomplished through our comprehensive safety program that emphasizes continual training, supervision, accountability and review of construction methods.
Diversity. We strive for diversity, not only in our workforce, but also in our services and markets. We value new perspectives and individual differences, and recognize these variances enhance our creativity and gain us significant strength.
Innovation. Our focus on continuous improvement, adaptability and inventiveness results in creative solutions, both internally and externally, that best achieve our clients’ goals.
Sustainability. We believe it is our responsibility to leave the planet in a better shape than we found it for future generations. That belief permeates all our projects, where we consistently strive to achieve higher LEED ratings than specified, make extensive use of sustainable construction materials, and recycle construction waste. When working in a remote, austere environment, we train the local population to become better builders and to properly maintain the buildings we leave behind.
The company began with just two offices in 1985—Washington, DC and Cairo, Egypt. Since then, we have built a global footprint and an international reputation for exceeding client expectations.
A year into operation, we began providing U.S. materials to a variety of corporate and U.S. government agencies as well as construction subcontracting services for U.S. Government-funded projects in Egypt.
By 1990, we won our first construction contract as Prime Contractor. Though just $1.9 million, it was the launch of our construction operations. By 1994, the company had over $100 million of construction projects under its belt and, better yet, not a single lost-time accident.
In our 10th year, we expanded our reach with a branch office in Doha, Qatar that opened opportunities in the Gulf region. In 1998, Orascom Construction Industries acquired a 45% ownership stake in the company. By 2001, ENR Magazine named Contrack one its Top International Contractors for the tenth straight year.
In 2003, we opened offices in Afghanistan and Iraq. In 2005, a UAE office followed. In the company’s 20th year, we surpassed the $250 million revenue threshold and Orascom acquired the remaining stake of the company.
In 2013, Contrack International acquired Watts Constructors, LLC and began merging company operations. Watts was established in 1993 as a woman-owned small business operating primarily as a subcontractor in the San Francisco Bay Area. In June 2007, Watts Constructors relocated its corporate headquarters to Honolulu, Hawaii and expanded its work on the U.S. mainland and Guam.
In 2014, we opened an office in Yokohama, Japan which is our base of operations for the Asia Pacific region.
In 2015, we officially changed our name to Contrack Watts, Inc. The resulting company is, in every respect, built to build.
