As a Design & Build contractor, EXEN execution & enterprises is defined as a ‘Small Medium Enterprise' (SME) business based on annual turnover and the size of contracts undertaken – typically in the $5m to $15m dollar range.
EXEN has strong background roots in the Middle East (ME) that date back to the early 1990s when this private company was founded and established in the Lebanese capital city - Beirut.
In 1988, the co-founder of EXEN Rabih A. Hosn established a Design/Architecture Firm “Bureau d’Architecture Rabih A. Hosn”, which was merged with EXEN upon inception.
EXEN traded successfully for over 20 years during this formative phase in Lebanon, completing c.150 projects in the Public, Civil and Domestic segments of the construction market.
It was during this initial period of EXEN's development that the wealth of Design, Engineering and Construction expertise was accrued that now provides the quality hallmark for all of EXEN's work.

Later, in the aftermath of the 2003 war of Iraq , a strategic decision was taken by the company in 2004 to open an office further East in Kuwait City – principally to act as a hub from which field operations could be launched directly into Iraq . This step became reality and a number of $multi-million projects involving 150-300+ staff have subsequently been delivered in support of re-construction efforts.
Afterwards, EXEN's Design/Construction services expanded to Afghanistan Consequently, Dubai office was established in 2006 to manage and support the operations.
The second decade of EXEN's development was marked by the acquisition of substantial expertise in the international Engineering/ Construction industry; extensive exposure to hi-caliber multi-national customers provided EXEN with the opportunity to interact with the most advanced codes, standards, specifications and practices in this field.
