  • European international contractors help to protect and improve the environment

Respect for and protection of the environment are major concerns of European construction companies. Admittedly, the construction process may have temporary negative effects – but these can be limited in co-operation with clients and authorities and by applying modern technologies. Environment assessment studies are the basis for the protection or improvement of living conditions, landscapes, biodiversity etc. Recycling of waste and used materials, noise protection, energy efficiency, preservation of historical heritage and others are common practice supported by a high involvement of our companies in research and innovation. Providing quality corresponding to the requirements of clients and society are permanent aims of construction, combined with the respect for nature and environment.
