SALINI MAGAZINE - WE BUILD VALUELIKE US ON FACEBOOK
 
Fifty years ago this year, a consortium of international construction companies completed the rescue of the Ramses II temples at Abu Simbel in Egypt. It was completed in 1968 at the request of UNESCO after work on the Aswan High Dam threatened to submerge this world-renowned archaeological site forever. Some of the world’s leading builders answered UNESCO’s call for help, including Salini Impregilo. Their task was to take apart the two temples piece by piece, and rebuild them on a new, safe site. This one-of-a-kind challenge was met by 2,000 men working for a total of 40 million hours.
