GIBB has been present in Mauritius since 1958. Initially, Sir Alexander Gibb & Partners (Africa), based in Nairobi, were invited to Mauritius and provided consultancy services in the fields of Wastewater, Roads, Airport and Wave Energy.
GIBB's involvement was continuous in Mauritius as such until 1972, when Sir Alexander Gibb & Partners (Mauritius) was set up as a local partnership under the laws of Mauritius.
GIBB (Mauritius) Ltd was incorporated as a private Mauritian company under the laws of the Republic of Mauritius in February 1991. Since April 2002, the shareholding is 100% by Mauritian Nationals.
GIBB (Mauritius) Ltd possesses a Quality Management System compliant with ISO 9001:2008 and applicable to Consulting, Design and Management Services and site based projects.
With a Mauritian Managing Director, thirty-three Mauritian engineers and two expatriate specialists in a total staff of over a hundred, much of the work is performed with local expertise. This is augmented technically and/or physically as required from the vast resources of the GIBB Group.
During the past 20 years, GIBB has provided local experience and training for many Mauritian engineers, and provided others with the opportunity of specialist training overseas in our other offices.
