Kepi’s staff is drawn from a wide range of professional trades, skills and disciplines, who all make a unique contribution and ensure the success of the company as it continues to develop.
We employ Chartered Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, experienced managers and specialist trades, including former armed forces personnel. Each and every person has the drive and determination required to ensure that the company’s aim of delivering first time, every time is achieved.
These are individual assessments. We use local labour and skilled trades where available and when appropriate security measures allow. This simple but effective solution ensures that the local community benefits from the company’s presence in the area. Putting something back into the community is key and also helps to ensure a secure and safer working environment.
As well as providing staff for these projects we will also mentor and train local people in construction, ensuring we leave behind a legacy of various skills when we finally complete the project. These can range from basic operative through more technical skills and on to enhancing the management capabilities of local workers.
All facilities need some work to keep them in tip top shape and Camp Juno in Helmand Province, Afghanistan is no exception. Housekeeping is necessary to ensure everything is fully operational and this includes maintaining existing infrastructure such as fencing, existing and new groundworks. In support of British military operations and UK Works Group Royal Engineers Kepi were engaged to carry out repair and refurbishment around the camp in a number of areas.
There are many examples of Kepi delivering part of a project as a sub-contractor, either working on their own bespoke area or working in collaboration on a part of the construction and build. In this particular case Kepi were working with CADG as a sub-contractor tasked with supplying the building that housed a number of fuel storage tanks and their ancillary equipment. The location was Camp Shorabak in Helmand, Afghanistan and the project was part of the US Reconstruction Project in the Province.
As well as major construction and infrastructure projects Kepi also deliver lower key works. These are just as important as they provide necessary servicers such as this one. The Australian Department of Defence were looking to improver the levels of security around their precincts at Camp Qargha, Kabul in Afghanistan and they wanted a comprehensive plan and installation for their internal fencing. This needed to include “ceremonial” as well as vehicle and pedestrian gates.
Kepi deliver major infrastructure projects in the conflict zone of Afghanistan, mainly for the various international defence forces. These clients require their contractors to carry out their work quickly but to a very high standard so that future maintenance is kept to a minimum. Kepi were happy to take on a road maintenance and upgrade project, with drainage work included, for the Australian Department of Defence in Camp Qargha, Kabul.
The Australian Defence Force needed a reliable and experienced Facilities management company to run, maintain and operate their diverse range of buildings located across the city of Kabul in Afghanistan. They chose Kepi and whist this was a challenging contract, in a war zone, we have managed their Kabul property portfolio to a very standard.
