ZAG offers independent and comprehensive technical support to investors in all phases of construction – from preparation for the investment to commissioning of the building, and later also during the monitoring of the building during its lifetime. Being present from the beginning to the end of construction allows for better knowledge of the facility and better responsiveness in each of the construction phases. We offer professional support in the construction of road and railway infrastructure, airports, ports, hydroelectric power plants, thermal power plants and nuclear power plants, as well as individual buildings, bridges and other construction facilities.
Expert support will be most effective if all stakeholders are involved in a timely manner. Consulting during design and project reviews enable the elimination of irregularities and possible errors even before construction. “Unforeseen situations” that cause complications in construction are rarely such that they could not be foreseen with adequate knowledge, careful design and professional implementation of the construction.
The system of external quality control, however, allows irregularities to be eliminated during construction at the latest and not until after construction, when some irregularities may become apparent only after the warranty period has expired. During construction, deviations from the project or the required material properties are identified through field visits, measurements and investigations of the samples taken, and inadequate material is repaired or removed based on the investigations.
We provide professional support and external quality control in all areas of construction.
