Engineering Post Report
Frontier Works Organization (FWO) as a progressive development firm, having motto of “Sustaining Excellence” is committed to improve country’s infrastructure and has to its credit of accomplishing numerous mega projects during its 55 years existence in daunting environments such as the great game changer China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) road network in southern Balochistan various important projects in different areas of Punjab, Khyber Pukhtoonkhwah, Sindh and Gilgit-Baltistan.
FWO which has just completed 55 years of creditable performance has steadily grown accumulating diverse technical experiences, financial muscle and corporate strategies and become a national indomitable outfit that has undertaken the construction of bridges, roads, tunnels, airfields, railway lines and dams with irrigation setups all over Pakistan.
According to information gathered from FWO sources, the supreme dedication accompanied by sophisticated technology and machinery has enabled FWO to be trusted as the first choice of any client.
Beyond the frontiers , the FWO has also quite successfully and commendably undertaken construction projects in Kuwait, Afghanistan, United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Liberia (under the United Nations).
The FWO has always remained committed to vision and mission with integrity and honesty and is genuinely proud of cultivating the culture of quality works. Although FWO has mostly been engaged on civil engineering projects in peace, but it has with the same spirit made its appreciable contribution in national calamities/disasters like situations as well. FWO has always quite promptly responded to all calamities and natural disasters such as earthquakes, seasonal floods, glacier avalanches and land sliding.
With an appreciable record of working and achievements, the FWO quite genuinely is looking forward to greater challenges and is better equipped and organized than ever before to squarely and determinedly meet them.
The sources maintained that as Pakistan braced for the challenges of a new decade of development followed by scarce national resources and adverse geostrategic environment, in also needs national strategic organizations that can be relied upon to reach , resilience , competitiveness and cost-effective v solutions .
The FWO in recent years has emerged as the most trusted strategic organization that has created engineering marvels. By introducing new trends in tunneling, mining, tourism and information technology and as such, the sources claimed, the FWO is surely the most relied upon organization in Pakistan.
FWO’s tremendous journey of 55 years is backed by its small but dedicated workforce which has demonstrated its competence in various domains of infrastructure development. In achievements of goals and targets, the FWO has sacrificed more than 1300 workforce for the national cause.
FWO is specialized in numerous engineering sectors including Infrastructure Works, Energy, Mining, Information Technology, Tourism, Technical Education and Corporate Social Responsibility under which so many significant projects are being accomplished across Pakistan. Sector-wise details of such projects will be presented some other time for want of space, please.
Frontier Works Organization (FWO) had started its historic journey from October31, 1966 with the construction of Karakoram Highway (KKH)—the one and only road link between Pakistan and China. KKH at times has also been attributed as the 8th Wonder of the World because of its phenomenal altitude that traverses the mountain ranges at heights above 4000 meters.
The sources pointedly stated that the FWO has progressed leaps and bounds hence rightly being considered as one of the largest civil engineering firms of Pakistan contributing immensely in nation building.
