As one of the leading construction
companies in Thailand, we recognise the importance of our social
responsibilities. We strive to create safe and healthy projects
for the benefit of the Thai people while protecting the natural
environment and ensuring that the actions we take today will make

& Nielsen has had a long history since Rudolf Christiani, a
young Danish civil engineer, and Aage Nielsen, a Captain in the
Royal Danish Navy, established the company in Copenhagen in 1904
to build bridges, marine works and other reinforced concrete structures.
In less than 5 years, Christiani &
Nielsen established a branch in Hamburg, Germany and, after World
War I, further extended its operations to the United Kingdom, South
America, Australia and Africa.
Christiani & Nielsen (Siam) Ltd.
was established in Thailand on 28th February 1930. Since then, the
company has been responsible for a number of landmark projects including
the Democracy Monument, Klong Toey Port, Krungthep, Krungthon and
Nonathburi bridges spanning the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok, the
Rajdamnern Boxing Stadium, the Sukhothai Hotel in Bangkok, the luxury
Baan Taling Ngam Resort Hotel on Koh Samui and the Asian Games Sports
The Thai company was listed on the
Stock Exchange of Thailand in early 1991 and in November 1992 changed
its name to Christiani & Nielsen (Thai) Public Company Limited.
In order to further strengthen operations worldwide, Christiani
& Nielsen (Thai) PCL in December 1992 completed a reverse takeover
of its publicly listed Danish parent company the first such transaction
in Thai history. Expansion into Malaysia, Vietnam and China, together
with investment in engineering and property related businesses,
followed soon thereafter.
Largely as a result of the Asian financial
crisis in 1997, the company has needed to undertake extensive restructuring
of the business. After restructuring, including the disposal of
subsidiaries and other investments, the company will focus on its
core construction business in Thailand.
In the early part of the last century,
Christiani & Nielsen was recognised internationally for its
development and utilisation of reinforced concrete as a new technology.
During its long history Christiani & Nielsen became known as
a world leader in innovative design and construction techniques.
These include the technique of wharf construction for Klong Toey
port, which has become known by engineers worldwide as the C &
N Wharf and the design and construction of the worlds first immersed
tube tunnel in 1937. More recently, the latest construction techniques
were used by the company for slip-forming the largest feed silos
in Thailand and pipe-jacking beneath roads and klongs for the Bangkok
Metropolitan Administration (BMA) Wastewater Project.
Today, we are able to provide a comprehensive
range of construction services, including the design and construction
of a wide variety of building and civil engineering works, the design,
fabrication and erection of steel structures and a full range of
electrical and mechanical engineering services, in addition to our
traditional construction activities.
