The firm is combining its skills in design, piling and foundations, temporary works and construction to deliver the project, as well as its expertise in mechanical and electrical engineering.

The company develops commercial properties in select local markets in Poland, the Czech Republic, Romania and Hungary, and residential developments in Prague and Warsaw.
