Tree of Life leadership recently completed a mission to Iraq, where they laid the groundwork for Bridge Condition Inspection and Asset Management training program with Iraq’s Ministry of Construction and Housing, State Commission of Bridges and Roads. The program is intended to provide Iraqi public and private sector professionals with state-of-the-art infrastructure management tools. Tree of Life is in the process of developing a Memorandum of Understanding to advance the program.
Tree of Life is working in conjunction with ASCE Construction Institute’s Committee on Social and Environmental Concerns in Construction and ASCE’s Global Center on Computing and Information Technology to develop and provide materials for Iraqi construction and construction management professionals.
Tree of Life is engaged in a project to train the project management team of an Iraqi construction company using design-build assignments.
Tree of Life worked with the U.S. Department of Defense in the early planning phases for a program called the Iraq Engineers Enhancement Program (IEEP). The program is a public-private partnership aimed to significantly further reconstruction efforts in Iraq by selecting Iraqi engineers to intern with universities and private sector engineering firms in the United States. The selected engineers spend three to six months training and working with their host institutions and are dedicated to returning to contribute to Iraq’s reconstruction efforts upon completion of the internship.
