The Center for Planning and Architectural Studies (CPAS) established in 1980 is considered to be the first integrated center of its kind in the Arab World. Since 2004 CPAS is registered as an “Expertise House in Engineering Consultation” (No.19), at the Egyptian Engineering Syndicate. It works along two parallel lines:
– The first is in the field of Engineering Consultation Services – architecture,
planning, structural, infrastructure, roads, Electro-Mechanical and landscaping – in
Egypt and Arab countries.

 – The second is in the field of training, research, publications and specialized studies including Pre-investment and feasibility studies, assets and environmental impact assessment .
