Sub Directorate – Iraq



The Governorate of Anbar in western Iraq is the country’s largest province. It is home to extensive desert areas and arable land along the Euphrates. However, Anbar has been the site of many complex crises over the last two decades.

The province is recovering only slowly. The productive and social infrastructure is still destroyed; the social cohesion of the population is compromised; and the opportunities to secure an adequate livelihood are limited – especially in agriculture. The impacts of climate change are directly tangible in Anbar through advancing desertification, water shortages and sandstorms.

Project Description

We were tasked with designing a municipality building to be used as an Agriculture Sub Directorate for the Anbar Governorate. Tasks included design development, schematic design, permitting stages including all construction drawings, details and structural components. Both local building codes as well as German building code had to be met. This project’s completion included a comprehensive maintenance manual, for local building operators to use a guide to ensure longevity of the structure and avoid premature deterioration.
