Local Consulting Firm Has Global Reach

A local firm, Wheatley US Limited, will present a two-day class on “Construction Contract Management” In Doha, Qatar, on December 18th and 19th, 2009, for Cape PLC. Cape is a major UK-based contractor providing insulation, fire protection, abrasive blasting, refractory, coatings, cleaning and training services to major power, industrial, oil and gas, refinery and petrochemical customers around the world. The course will be presented in the offices of their Qatari subsidiary, Cape East Limited (W.L.L.), in Doha. An additional presentation of the course will be made in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in the spring.

Headquartered in the UK, Cape has 65 offices in 28 countries around the globe. Wheatley US Limited is a Philadelphia area construction consulting firm with offices in Bala Cynwyd, and Baghdad, Iraq. With its sister firm, Wheatley UK Limited, in London, England, The Wheatley Companies (sm) are joined with strategic partners worldwide in a network called Wheatley Global Partners (sm), providing consulting services to clients around the globe.

The course was authored – and is presented – jointly by William A. Wheatley, R.A., of Wheatley US Limited and Stephen Matthews, Esquire, of Baker Botts, a major US law firm with a significant presence in the Middle East and East Asia, and in partnership with Pinnacle Group International of Singapore. Messrs. Wheatley and Matthews taught the course recently on November 16 and 17, 2009, in Doha, and Mr. Wheatley presented it in Singapore on November 19 and 20, for groups of regional contractors and government contracting officers.

The opportunity to present the series of courses came about as a result of contacts made through Wheatley US Limited’s corporate membership in the World Trade Center of Greater Philadelphia and its International Design and Engineering Consortium (“IDEC”), and in the British-American Business Council. Wheatley US Limited is a corporate member of both organizations. Wheatley US Limited is an example of how a small, local firm can develop global reach for its services through membership in such organizations.
