2.000 LDK Projects: A significant milestone for LDK Consultants but also for the Greek entrepreneurship.
When Mr. Leonidas Damianidis, current Group President, founded an Engineering Firm in 1968, he had the vision of a company that would provide development consulting and engineering in Greece and abroad. What he might not have imagined was that the company would later on carry assignments in more than 110 countries and be considered one of the leading multidisciplinary consultancies in Southeast Europe, the Middle East and the Mediterranean Basin.
LDK’s Expertise Milestones:
1968 Buildings Engineering ► 1978 Environmental Management ► 1981 Energy Policy and Regional Planning ► 1992 Socioeconomic Development ► 2000 Transportation Engineering ► 2005 Water Resources Management ► 2012 Climate Change Mitigation
