Associated Consultants & Partners (ACP) was established in Sudan in 1980 as a partnership, with objectives of using the high standards of expertise and experience available within the Sudanese engineering profession to serve the needs of clients in Sudan and other countries within the African region and the Middle East.It is the policy of the practice to encourage the development of indigenous technology and expertise and accelerate the transfer of advance technology over a wide spectrum of engineering consultancy. 

To achieve these objectives Associated Consultants and Partners (ACP) following a steady expansion in the workload introduced in 1983 two partners from Sir M. MacDonald & Partners (MMP) of Cambridge England, together with an agreement for the provision of comprehensive professional service and supporting facilities from the British practice as and when required by the Sudanese Partnership.

In 1987 the partnership of the British members ceased and cooperation with MMP and later Mott MacDonald Group continued on project to project basis.

During this period ACP was able to develop a core of permanent staff and qualified professional engineers supported by technicians, draughts men and other supporting staff. Part- time Consultants and Experts in complementary fields are engaged for the duration of specific projects.

The ACP office is equipped with all facilities required for carrying out studies, designs and supervisory assignment. Office facilities include draughting and printing equipments, survey equipments, an up-to-date comprehensive technical library and in house computers and IT systems.
