From our beginnings in a basement in New Jersey and then New York in 2009, we have grown over the years as a construction consultant into a full spectrum business advisory and consultancy outfit. ISA has now become a trusted advisor. Today our team of professionals and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) provide critical thinking about wide-ranging and far-reaching business and economic issues.
ISA was founded by Irshad Salim in the state of New Jersey, USA. Salim, a visionary and imagineer, with degree in Civil Engineering, and experience in design, contracting, and penchant for change & claim management, construction law, journalism, painting, graphics, visuals, public speaking, international relations, analytics and history, made a mark in costing, value analysis, constructibility review, contract administration, change & claim management, and support services for out-of-court settlements.
In 2011, Salim was hired by a UAE PMC firm to assist design & supervision consultant review contractors claims, technical trouble-shooting and contract advisory on DH660 million infrastructure (transportation) project in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi.
The engagement marked the beginning of ISA’s services in the Middle East, with next stop being the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
In 2012, ISA was registered in Pakistan to provide business related services.
In 2014, ISA started providing services to its US-based and KSA-based clients in Bahrain. It launched “Green White & Green” initiative for B2B services between GCC businesses and Pakistani companies.
In 2015, ISA’s business units BE2C2 and MAMOSA were formed to provide knowledge-based analytical and infomatic services for digital platforms.
