AMSK CONSTRUCTIONS (PVT) LTD is a renowned and dynamic establishment which specialized in the realm of construction and civil engineering services. The Company was incorporated as a Private Limited Company on 15th January 2002 under the companies act no. 17 of 1982. Later the Company was re-incorporated under the revised companies act no. 07 of 2007 on 11th August 2009.

As a perfect testament to the old saying that, all great things has small beginnings AMSK commenced operations at the turn of the 21st century as a sub-contractor of the celebrated Korean construction company ‘Keangnam Enterprises’.
From the initial sub-contract works the name of the company became quite distinguished among the local construction community mainly due to the praises that AMSK received from project employers and stakeholders who became quite impressed by the quality of the workmanship on time execution and strict compliance to employer requirements /specifications. So naturally it didn’t take much time to reach the good word of mouth among the construction industry in regards to the capabilities and capacity of AMSK to execute construction endeavors’ within satisfactory time, cost and quality parameters.
Though, an infant among the giants of construction industry at that time we were reached by some of the most prominent names in the industry such as Keangnam Enterprises Limited & China Harbor Engineering Company Limited, whom has immediately assigned us as their nominated main sub-contractor for some prominent and suitably massive scale building and highway construction projects contract prices of which exceeded LKR 1800 million cumulatively.
With the company gaining momentum with the collaboration with international construction consortium it was time for a pragmatic shift into the mainstream construction realm and It was at this point of time that the Managing Director of AMSK decided to compete in public procurement scene with more prominent local construction organizations. With a sore foot in public procurement scene AMSK managed to become one of the few companies that was fortunate to obtain the C-1 grade in the first attempt and without having to upgrade from a lower grade to a higher grade.
AMSK has qualified for the CIDA (formerly ICTAD) Grade- C 1 (for Building & Highway Construction) which is the highest national accreditation that a construction company could achieve in Sri Lanka. Apart from Highways and Buildings AMSK has proven the adeptness at other civil construction practices such as Irrigation Hydro Power and Bridge constructions.
AMSK managed to obtain the Certificate of Conformity on 02nd August 2010, for ISO 9001: 2008 (for construction of Buildings and Roads as per predetermined designs and specifications) from Sri Lanka Standards Institution and has been implementing the good practices of quality management in all our disciplines, ever since.
ISO Certificate No - QSC – 05224
AMSK has gathered over 150 professionally qualified, technically competent and adequately experienced Chartered Engineers Surveyors Technical Officers Quantity Surveyors etc. as the staff of the company and continues to be an industry leader in relation to staff credentials.
AMSK now bears the strength of over 450 efficient and hardworking workforce whom are above average in terms of workmanship in various construction activities in comparison to run-of-the-mill workmen.
As of July 2016 The Company is equipped with a tremendous fleet of construction vehicles machinery plant and equipment which makes AMSK eligible to compete for most prominent and largest scale construction endeavors. The estimated value of the machinery fleet is approximately 1000 million rupees.
AMSK now owns a fleet of construction plants including several concrete batching plants, asphalt concrete batching plants, large scale crusher plants as well as a fully equipped network of workshops to aid and complement our on-going construction projects.
