In a significant step toward cultural revival, Engicon has commenced the supervision of restoration works for the Mosul Cultural Museum, the second-largest museum in Iraq after the National Museum in Baghdad. Established in 1952 to showcase the rich history of northern Iraq, the museum suffered extensive damage during the 2014 occupation, including looting and deliberate attacks on its cultural heritage.

Since 2018, a unique international consortium, led by the Iraqi State Board of Antiquities and Heritage (SBAH), in collaboration with renowned institutions like the Musée du Louvre, the Smithsonian Institution, and supported by the International Alliance for the Protection of Heritage in Conflict Areas (ALIPH), has been working to revive the museum. The World Monuments Fund (WMF) joined this consortium in 2020, taking charge of defining the restoration program.

In 2022, WMF, in collaboration with a team of international experts, completed the architectural drawings and technical engineering studies necessary for the reconstruction and rehabilitation of the museum and its adjacent garden.

Engicon is proud to be part of this significant project, overseeing rehabilitation works from tendering to on-site supervision. Leveraging our expertise in construction and engineering, we are committed to ensuring the restoration aligns seamlessly with the original vision of architect Mohamed Makiya. The rehabilitation includes structural, architectural, electrical, and mechanical works, along with external and landscaping elements to reinstate Makiya's design ambitions.

We look forward to contributing to the rebirth of this cultural gem and preserving the history of northern Iraq for generations to come.
