Afghanistan Rehabilitation & Architecture Organization (ARAO) was founded in 2000 prior to the post-war reconstruction period by a group of dedicated & educated Afghan professionals in Afghanistan. ARAO began its operations in Afghanistan with only a small design office and the few engineers whom had founded the company.

Over the years, ARAO has grown to have a complete design team and one of the largest engineering staffs in the Middle East Region. Since inception, ARAO has amassed a portfolio of over ninety completed projects. Current and previous clients include the US Army Corps of Engineers, US Army Provincial Reconstruction Teams, US State Department, ISAF, NATO and the United Nations. ARAO is now a full service design, engineering, and construction firm and excels at managing complex projects and solving challenges for clients. While maintaining engineering as a core activity, ARAO is currently pursuing new business opportunities as a service provider (design, operations and maintenance, logistics) and as a supplier of manufactured products. ARAO has also begun bidding on development contracts that include services in which ARAO is an acknowledged leader.

Today ARAO is operating in what is surely one of the most promising economic and public funding environments our nation has seen for decades. Government and donor spending on roads, residential areas, infrastructure and other major construction projects are substantial and continuing.
