Interconsult Zimbabwe

Interconsult Zimbabwe draws on its local experience from its long presence in Zimbabwe and its access to global knowledge from the COWI Group to offer technical and environmental consulting services to both private and public sectors and international donors.

Interconsult Zimbabwe (Pvt) Ltd (ICZ) has played a significant role in the development of infrastructure in Zimbabwe since its inception in 1992 as an offshoot of the Norwegian Interconsult International A/S.
