Maga in Brief

Since its establishment in 1984, Maga has been an active participant in the construction industry in Sri Lanka, making a significant contribution to its development by applying the knowledge and experience gained through working with international construction companies.

Today, Maga has made an indelible imprint as the market leader and a model construction company of the country. It has provided leadership to Sri Lanka’s construction industry by achieving exceptional growth, quality of work, timely delivery whilst setting benchmarks in safety & environmental performance. This is evidenced by the company being named the leader of the Construction Sector by the National Chamber of Commerce of Sri Lanka for 6 consecutive years, being the only construction firm to receive Business Superbrands status and the first construction company to win the National Green Award. The Institution of Engineers Sri Lanka honoured the company with its first ever Engineering Excellence Award (for Infrastructure Development) in 2008.


Maga has won a record 90 National Construction Awards from the Construction Industry Development Authority (CIDA). The company won the prestigious International Federation of Asian and Western Pacific Contractors Association (IFAWPCA) Gold Medal for the construction of Apollo Hospital Colombo in 2002. The company is presently constructing the tallest building in Sri Lanka, 47-Storey Hyatt Regency Hotel in Colombo valued at LKR 15.8 billion and has recently completed the 100km highway from Anuradhapura to Tincomalee. The company has also completed the longest recent road rehabilitation project, the 158km long Matara–Wellawaya Road, which was delivered ahead-of-schedule garnering the praise of the European Union.

Maga retains its Platinum rating and number 4 ranking in the Sri Lanka’s Corporate Accountability Index since 2016, in recognition of its sustainable construction practices and continuous commitment to social, environmental and financial accountability. The company has been involved in work on buildings of a built-up area of over 20,000,000sqft, road networks spanning over 3,500km in length and water projects serving over 3.5 million persons, along with many bridges and flyovers.
