Projects: Developing Countries

The Developing Countries Group at Max Fordham works on philanthropic projects in less economically-developed countries around the world.

We provide engineering expertise on community projects that normally can’t access this kind of assistance. Projects range in scale from designing a single house to advising governments on school design.

The Group often work on education and healthcare buildings, addressing fundamental needs such as water, sanitation, and shelter. Our contributions are generally provided pro bono, supported by funding from the practice and the donation of time from staff.

Some of the common contributions the Developing Countries Group makes to projects include:

  • Environmental design
  • Water supply
  • Sanitation
  • Storm water drainage
  • Electricity supply
  • Lighting
